Vegan clothing or vegan fashion is becoming increasingly popular. But what exactly is vegan clothing? The most important feature of vegan clothing is that there no animals or animal materials were used during production. Specifically, no wool, leather, fur, felt, feathers, silk or suede was used.
Why do we choose vegan clothing?
Aside from being big animal lovers ourselves, we hope to make a difference by using clothing with the PETA Approved Vegan label. A difference that has a positive impact on the animals and environment around us.
The clothing industry, like many other massive industries, is not a textbook example of an animal-friendly supply chain. Many animals suffer from the fact that we as humans constantly use more and more intensively the resources around us. Animals are widely abused to meet our needs and we are the only ones who can do something about it.
What should I look for in vegan clothing?
The PETA Approved Vegan label is a great indicator that no animal products have been incorporated into your garment. Aside from the fact that vegan clothing does not include animal products, you can also pay attention to other labels. Labels that guarantee quality, for example, as well as labels that monitor the origin and conditions under which they are produced. Another example of this is;
- Organic 100; The Organic Content Standard standard verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a finished product and verifies the path the raw materials have taken from source to product.
It’s not as hard as you think
Are you asking yourself now; what can I do? Beautiful! Then you are on the right track. The answer to the question is not that complicated.
Simply checking the labels that are in your garments is already a start. And if you make a start you are already well on your way!
