As a sustainable brand we believe that neither the environment nor animals should be victims of humans way of living. According to Higg’s Material Sustainability Index (MSI), vegan materials are the most sustainable options. Since animal skins and fur are co-products of the unsustainable meat industry it’s hardly a surprise. Producing and purchasing animal derived clothing helps the meat industry to remain solvent, contributing to the cruelties of the business as well as climate change.
Globally, animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined and is also a leading cause of rainforest destruction. Other factors include the toxic chemicals needed to keep animal derived materials from decaying and the enormous amount of water used in the industry.
Consequently, choosing vegan fabrics, even if they include synthetics, are far less harmful to the environment, and nobody has to die for it.
