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 🙂

Is jail time justice for abused farm animals?

Justice is not locking away some, it’s freedom for all animals.

Backwards Activists Don’t Mind If You Sell Non-Vegan Food, Just Don’t Hunt

They’re literally saying “it’s fine if you serve animal products, just don’t hunt.”

PETA still gives “Compassionate Business” awards to non-vegan companies

It’s not far from the back-patting of Meatless Monday or reducetarianism, but it comes with a cyber plaque.
