Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Animal Fibers That Don’t Belong In An Animal Lovers’ Closet

This post may contain affiliate links.

If you love animals then you shouldn’t be wearing them. We generally associate animal hides making their way into our closets in the form of fur-trimmed coats (*cough* Canada Goose) or the infamous sheepskin UGG boots.

But fur isn’t the only animal skin we’re taking from and killing animals for our clothes, shoes, and fashion accessories.

To help you identify what animal fibers have unknowingly made its way into your closet, here is a quick guide to some of the most common animal fibers still used today.

If you love animals, I advise you to start reading the labels before you buy and make sure you aren’t contributing to any more unnecessary suffering and killing of animals for a mere fashion accessory.

Types of Animal Fibers Used in Fashion

Animal hides, fur, and feathers used for human clothing, shoes, and fashion accessories are derived from one of the following ways:

  1. animals are killed for their skin or hide (leather, fur, shearling, sheepskin)
  2. animals are bred to produce fibers that we take from them (wool, down, silk)

In the second option, just because animals aren’t killed immediately, doesn’t make it OK for humans to take it from animals. Animals are often killed when their production declines and they live in inhumane and filthy conditions while in captivity.

List of Animal Fibers

Leather

Not Vegan – Animal Skin derived from cows, goats, pigs, cats, and dogs. Origin of animal hide is typically unknown. Also goes by genuine leather, calfskin, calf leather, cowhide leather, lambskin, animal hide.

Suede

Not Vegan – Suede is a type of leather so animals are killed the same way for their skin/hide.

Exotic Leather

Not Vegan – derived from the skin of (usually still alive) alligators or other exotic reptiles. Also known as alligator skin, crocodile skin, snake skin, exotic skin, or just simply leather.

Fur

Not Vegan – Animal skin and fur derived from killing fur-bearing animals.

Wool

Not Vegan – Wool is derived from shearing or cutting the hair of animals, typically a lamb or sheep.

Shearling

Not Vegan – The skin of lambs or sheep with the fleece still attached.

Sheepskin

Not Vegan – The hide of a sheep or lamb with their wool still intact. Also known as lambskin.

Cashmere

Not Vegan – Derived from the coat and wool of goats.

Down

Not Vegan – Derived from the process of painfully plucking feathers of geese and ducks.

Silk

Not Vegan – Silk is obtained by boiling silkworms alive in their cocoons.

If you love animals, avoid buying clothes, shoes, handbags, or other accessories made with animal fibers. There are plenty of cruelty-free and animal-free textiles available now, so there’s no reason we should continue wearing animal skins in 2018!

    Do you have a list of alternatives? I’ve heard of vegan leather but not sure about suede/silk egg
    Thanks
