What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

Clear Bags – Shop the Trend | Vegan Style

This post may contain affiliate links.

See-Through, PVC, Transparent, Clear Bags, whatever you wanna call them, they’re clearly so hot right now. I am excited to announce that I’m bringing back the Shop the Trend series!

I’m quite fascinated with the clear bag trend because it’s counter-intuitive and unexpected. I mean, the point of bags is to conceal and safely stow our personal belongings so why would anyone want to willingly broadcast to the world (and to potential thieves) the contents and valuables we carry with us? Answer: Because fashion.

Clear Bag Trend: Love It or Hate It?

Instead of hiding and concealing the contents in your bag, the clear bag trend makes it so that what you put inside your bag is now part of your outfit. How cool is that?!

I also love watching “What’s in my bag?” videos on Youtube and the clear bag trend feels like the real-life version of it where I can satisfy my innate curiosity without crossing any personal boundaries or breaking any laws. I swear I’m not a creep, just a curious creature 😬

In some ways, the trend happens to be very practical. If you find yourself always digging through the bottomless pit of your bag to find your keys, wallet or spare change, a clear bag will solve all your woes.

In addition, clear bags have started to pop up due to the increase security measures at public events. Some venues have restrictions prohibiting event-goers from bringing a bag unless it’s clear and you can visibly see all the contents inside the bag. Ariana Grande had a clear-bag policy on her recent tour.

The policy did allow patrons to bring freezer bags of their personal belongings, but let’s not make freezer bags into a thing now, for obvious reasons.

Many designers have embraced the clear bag trend in recent years with Nordstrom now offering 100+ clear bags! On the flip side, there are some who oppose the clear bag trend, explaining they’re just purely fun to look at but not very practical or reasonable to buy. I’d love to know, what do you think about the clear bag trend? Share your thoughts in the comment section down below!

A Note on PVC Clear Bags

I do want to make an important note here that PVC is a plastic material, made from petroleum and in no way am I claiming PVC to be a sustainable material. But here on ethical elephant, we explore beauty, fashion, and lifestyle trends with a focus on finding vegan and animal-free alternatives. So I admit PVC clear bags are not a sustainable option however the point of our Shop the Trend series is to help consumers discover and choose from available options that are free of animal products.

We understand not everyone is fully-vegan or only purchase sustainable products so we strive to find options for everyone in all walks of life, but our core mission is to always and forever promote only products that do not contain animal products.

We do highlight vegan, ethical, and sustainable products and brands in many of our other guides, lists, and posts.

List of Vegan Clear Bags

Let’s now get into the list of options for clear vegan bags. PVC itself is a non-animal material, so it is vegan. However some clear bags may contain some leather detailing or handle which was from animal hide making the bag not vegan. Below is list of options that were not made from animal leather and instead are made with synthetic materials.
