In today’s society, more and more people are converting to a vegan diet not only for the amazing health benefits, but also due to their concern for the environment and, most importantly, the wellbeing of animals.
Today, people are also making more conscious decisions to convert their wardrobe to a cruelty-free zone. It’s time to start thinking about where our daily-use items come from.
Billions of animals pay the price every year for us to wear animal products – this puts a significant amount of stress, pain and suffering on these innocent creatures, only for us to wear as ‘fashion’.
Aside from that, PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) reports that “the production of wool, fur, and leather contributes to climate change, land devastation, pollution, and water contamination”. There are many plant-based, sustainable, and renewable fabrics available, including hemp, cotton, bamboo and linen, which are all great alternatives for the Australian climate.
If you’re concerned about the quality of animal-free products, there are plenty of companies out there that produce pieces that are as durable as they are fashionable. Also, some of our favourite luxury fashion labels are latching onto this revolution and making a change by bringing out their own cruelty-free lines, including Stella McCartney who recently took over Paris Fashion Week with vegan crocodile skin, suede and snakeskin looks!
We have so much available to us these days that it’s easier than ever to make the switch, or even slowly introduce vegan options into our lives. Ignorance is bliss but being aware of how products we use affect the earth is crucial for our future and the generations to come.
