I will definitely go deep into the lines I loved, however our site needs an upgrade, so stay tuned….:)
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.
Attention all animal lovers, the online store formerly known as Vegetarian Shoes and Bags has recently undergone an exciting revamp. Appropriately renamed Vegan Chic, this e-store now also offers apparel and accessories for men, women and children that are both fashionable and cruelty-free!
Finding animal-friendly substitutes that are trendy and high-quality can be challenging. The seemingly unavoidable leather soles in footwear otherwise free of animal-products, is particularly frustrating for even the savviest shopper. Thanks to Vegan Chic, such goods are now more readily accessible.
All products viewed on the site are 100% animal-friendly. Shoppers will find goods made from hemp, jute, bamboo, natural cork, and recycled car tires. Our favourite right now is this two-tone vegan handbag by Starr for $54.99.
What’s more, Vegan Chic only features companies and manufacturers, such as NeuAura, that support fair labour practices. Co-founders Mark and Vessela Mulcahy also donate a portion of the site’s profits to a selection of animal charities.
