Living a vegan and cruelty free lifestyle shouldn’t just begin and end with food. From makeup to homeware and cosmetics to fashion it’s getting easier by the day to cut out animal products from most aspects of daily life.
Today we’re talking fashion with compassion, handbags to be precise! For far too long leather has been the chosen and most popular material for producing bags. Just as killing animals for food is extremely harmful to the planet, not to mention cruel, killing animals or using by-products for fashion also significantly contributes to damaging the environment and, in this modern day, is simply unnecessary.
If you’re on the look-out for a new cruelty-free bag, rather than just opting for a ‘non leather’ version, it’s always best to do some research first as it’s possible that some designs have been produced with non-vegan products, such as animal-based adhesive.
There are many vegan-friendly bags available to choose from so to give you a helping hand, Not To Die For has rounded up a few of our current favourites to help you choose your new compassionate arm candy.
And the other great news about vegan leather handbags, whether high street or designer, they’re often much more affordable than their animal leather counterparts!
