This one isn’t about clothes, but definitely noteworthy.
Who says that when trying to be ethical you have to dress or act a certain way? When you think vegan; high end and chique are not necessarily the first words that come to mind. Steriotypically vegans or green-minded people are stuck with the stigmas of the “modern day hippie” with low quality gear and a lack of style appeal aka with long dredded hair and bright coloured ill-matching ponchos and socks with open toe sandals.
Another stigma, is that being green means we have to give up our desire for style or luxury and those words are generally tied in with being unethical. But thinking like this limits us from seeing how luxury, quality, and style can come together in harmony with a green life. Henrik Fisker and Bernard Koehler both decided to address these limitations in the automotive industry and have come together to design the world’s first premium hybrid electric vehicle.
Introducing the Fisker Karma. After designing several luxury cars such as the Aston Martin, Henrik Fisker has teamed up with Quantum Technologies creating a car with his own name. With a mix of characteristics from the Aston, Corvette, and Maserati, this car will literally make your jaw drop. Not only is this car electric hybrid, making it a low fuel green vehicle, it also has the option of being completely vegan. That’s right VEGAN, no leather or any animal by-products anywhere, including the glue or plastic, which not very many products can truly brag about. Even the wood comes from fallen trees known as “rescued wood” from Michigan. This is a truly unique vehicle that retails for 110,000+, especially targeted for individuals who have a lot of money but also a great sense of ethical well being and style.
