Vegetarians and vegans have coveted Stella McCartney’s shoes and purses for years, and it’s not just because of the exquisite designs. McCartney doesn’t use a drop of animal skin in her products. That includes fur and leather. Now, just in time for New York fashion week, the designer is speaking out and telling the public why animal lovers should avoid wearing all skins.

McCartney says in the video, “If you’re like me, you’ve sworn off fur because you know about the gruesome ways animals suffer and die for fur fashions. And what about leather? That’s something people don’t think about as much. Anyone who cares about animals or the environment should become informed consumers on this issue.”

The daughter of the vegetarian Beatle is asking the public to take the pledge to go leather free. You can sign up on PETA’s page and opt to go faux.

McCartney says, “Please join me in exploring the huge variety of fashionable shoes, belts, purses and wallets that aren’t the products of a cow’s violent death.”

Count me in. Will you take the pledge?

    Love the message. I am against purchasing leather and fur – yay Stella! Would love, love if she had a more affordable line for the more average consumers. It would be great if there were more vegan, eco-friendly apparel options 🙂

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
