Fashion with a Conscience: How Will You Choose Your Next Vegan Purse?

The fashion world is changing faster than we could possibly expect. Our society is becoming more and more conscious and aware of the challenges we face, this in a general sense. The average person cares more than ever before about animal cruelty, ethical matters in the industry, contamination, and global warming. This inspiring trend is also influencing the way we shop and dress. We are now choosing eco-friendly materials and cruelty-free products.

There is something that many in the vegan lifestyle must admit despite it isn’t pretty. For decades, people have enjoyed vegan fashion in the wrong way. Materials as faux leather and fur, just to give two isolated examples, were widely used in this segment while being advertised as eco-friendly. However, they aren’t that eco-friendly. In fact, these synthetic products involve a heavy use of chemicals in their manufacture, causing great harm to the environment.

Why Designing Innovative Cork Wallets?

We are on a mission… promoting cruelty free fashion accessories and encourage an end to animal exploitation and suffering. Many organizations, brands or individuals work every day with the same passion and determination; the veganism movement is rising every year, which is great news.  This said we are mindful that it has never been easy to convince people to change their lifestyle… What we definitely do not tolerate is letting determination turning into conflicts: we must respect everybody’s choices. Every day, the vegan community pushes its message out, trying its best to reach as many people as it can, but what if we could do it in a different way? The suffering of animals and the impact on the environment...

Cork Going Endangered? A Toxic Myth You Cannot Believe

In the last few decades, the society has become more aware of the great deal of damage that many industries have done to the environment. As a direct result of this, we now live in an unpredictable world, at least in a climate sense. More and more people are identifying some manufactured products with the contaminations of lakes and sea, the ruthless slaughter of many species, and the destruction of entire forests. However, we cannot leave fact-less myths to affect us. One of the most counterproductive myths in this sense is that cork is going endangered and that its production creates a highly negative impact on the environment. Let’s understand the details.
