Finding vegan clothing is nowhere near the hassle it once was, but it’s still not a walk in the park. Non-vegan fashion items outnumber cruelty-free choices by the hundreds, but that doesn’t mean you have to opt for them.
Clothing that is entirely free from animal products and by-products is now affordable and accessible, but you still need to know where to look and what to look for, and we’re here to help. The vegan clothing part of our blog aims to inform you of materials you need to keep an eye out for, which vegan brands you can trust, and give you reviews of some of the finest, yet often inexpensive, cruelty-free clothing items out there.
Remember, just like the food you buy, choosing ethical clothing brands and items is a vote against animal cruelty and suffering. Businesses will respond if demand grows (which we’re already starting to see happen), so the more people decide to walk away from materials such as wool, silk, fur, leather, feathers, and the rest, the more choice we’ll have as compassionate consumers.
If you’re unsure of whether or not a particular piece of clothing is vegan, ask the seller. Better still, go to the source and ask the manufacturer or designer. Same applies for high street stores. Contact their customer service department and ask about their vegan clothing range. You might still get a bemused response, but the more emails and phone calls they receive about ethical clothing options, the more they’ll take notice.
In the meantime, we’re here to help you find some good quality garms and give you the info you need to make the right choices for your lifestyle, the animals, and the wider environment. If there’s anything about vegan clothing you’d like us to write about, drop us a line. We’d love to hear what you have to say.
