Every year, the leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals and tans their skins. Cows are often hacked apart and skinned while still alive and struggling to get away! Leather is also made from pigs, goats, and sheep—and even dogs and cats, who are slaughtered for their skin in China.
Watch cruelty-free fashion designer Stella McCartney’s exposé to learn more about the deadly leather trend and how you can help stop it!
Want to help? All you have to do is be skins-free and ask everyone you know to do the same! Thanks to so many cruelty-free and fashionable options available everywhere, it’s easy to be compassionate and look stylish at the same time—just like Stella!
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
