Did you know that every year, the global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals? Did you know that most leather comes from China and along with cattle, other animals—including sheep, dogs, and cats—are killed for their skin?

There are so many unfair actions taken in the leather industry. Plus, once the animal’s skin was ripped off the cow or cat, it is manufactured by modern day slaves under as unethical conditions as the animal was treated.
Just for a pair of cute sandals? I’d rather go barefoot.

Or better: wear those ethically manufactured, vegan sandals. The materials are from Europe and the sandals are made in Spain. They are breathable, eco-friendly (Ecolabel certified) and in contrast to leather, not produced with toxic chemicals that end up in the groundwater, polluting our planet.

They are super comfortable, look amazing and match so many different outfits!

The blouse is perfect for every season and it’s even work appropriate – dress it up or down. Hessnatur is a label that produces sustainable, organic and fair clothing. BUT: Even though it’s made out of cotton, I found out that it says on the website that it contains materials (I’m guessing the buttons) from animals which makes it NOT VEGAN.

The Armed Angels jeans shorts have been a staple this summer. They are high waisted and even though they look horrific on the Armed Angels website, they fit amazingly. Armed Angels is a fair and sustainable company.
