Disgusted by fur, but still buy leather? It’s just as cruel. Over a billion animals are killed by the leather industry every year, including dogs and cats – there’s no way to know what animal you are wearing, not that it should matter! The poor cows are forced to march for days to their death, and have chilli’s rubbed into their eyes to keep them moving when they collapse, or their tails snapped…
It’s also disastrous for the environment, with leather tanneries releasing toxic chemicals into our atmosphere and causing life threatening illnesses to the poor worker who must earn a living there.
No one should be impressed by ‘real leather’ labels.
Please ditch leather, there are so many wonderful alternatives available, made from eco friendly and durable materials.
