VEGAN LEATHER FASHION
Buying products with vegan leather is a great way to reduce your environmental impact. The leather industry drives global warming as well as rainforest destruction causing wildlife loss. It also creates other big problems such as water pollution. Opting for vegan leather also means no animals are used or harmed so a clearer conscience all round!
TOP TIP: When your shoes come to the end of their life make sure they're disposed of properly in a clothing bank. Or if you think they've still got life in them they could be passed on or go to a charity shop.
ON THE HIGH STREET
Vegan leather goods are yet to become popular the high streets but we hope in time that more businesses will start selling these eco-friendly alternatives. If you know of any high street shops selling vegan leather goods please get in contact so they can be added to the site!
TOP TIP: If you're shopping online and buying more than one item then it's more eco-friendly ordering all items from the same website to reduce the impact of packaging and delivery.
