Wear Something Else
We don’t need to wear leather, wool, down, snakeskin, cashmere, mohair, alpaca, fur, or anything else that comes from animals in order to dress up or stay warm. Animals do need their skin, hair, wool, fur, and feathers to live. There are wonderful vegan versions of every animal-derived “material” you can imagine. They come in a range of prices to suit any budget, look great, and are far more sustainable. Check the tags before you buy clothing and accessories, and if a pair of shoes, jacket, or bag contains bits of animal, leave it on the shelf.
