What do you call a French man in sandals? Vegans, listen up! Here are two of the most wonderful, edgy companies with ethical handmade heels which are completely animal free. How is that possible you say? Well Rebecca Brough, the woman behind Mink Shoes is pro-environment and her savvy sense of design brings life and pizazz to non-leather shoe alternatives. She is a true trail blazer in the world of eco fashion and dwells stateside. Then, there is Beyond Skin, actually the forerunner in this lineup, created by Natalie Dean from the UK. Beyond Skin is a noteworthy bastion of eco wise fashion. Their offerings are slightly more delicate. I used to think that using leather was in a sense recycling for the meat eaters out there. Beyond Skin's website has taught me otherwise. Apparently the tanning of animal hides creates industrial toxic waste and then renders the hides non-degradable. Plus we are loosing our rainforest to grazing livestock, and livestock waste is polluting our water. People, cut out the beef.
Cruelty free is officially stylish!!
