As I write this I am preparing to go on my first international trip in a verrrrry long time (thanks coronavirus!). Although taking a forced break from travel for the first half of 2020 has been challenging, in some ways I’m grateful because it has allowed me to reflect on my eco travel practices and how environmentally sustainable they are.
It’s great to see that people are becoming more mindful of the planet and its inhabitants. More and more, people are choosing to invest a little more money in their material possessions and take home ethical clothing brands among other efforts to help save Mother Earth. As I read somewhere recently, there is no such thing as cheap clothes – someone somewhere is paying the price.
Good news everyone, veganism is on the rise! And with that, vegan fashion, especially vegan leather, also is. I can’t begin to tell you how fuzzy it makes me feel when I see more and more people becoming aware of how small actions such as buying vegan sneakers and vegan shoes can have the greatest of impact on our planet, the people and animals. Veganism is not only changing the way we eat, but it is also positively changing our shopping habits, and the sustainable fashion industry is also gaining some sweet sweet momentum. That makes me happy.
