Free Stuff Friday: PETA Logo Wallet

Posted October 26, 2012 by Diana Mendoza

Not wearing fur is an obvious no-brainer—like who seriously thinks wearing the fur of a tortured dead animal is glamorous?! But animals also suffer and die for down feathers and leather. Yet just like with faux fur, there’s a huge variety of cruelty-free down and leather alternatives available. From jackets to belts to wallets, we’ve got you covered—especially on that last one, as we’re giving away a PETA wallet this week. :)

PETA logo vegan walletAside from condemning more than a billion animals to potentially horrendous deaths, the leather industry also harms the environment and humans because of the large amount of chemicals needed to treat the leather (i.e., keep the dead, rotting skin of animals from decaying so that people can wear it—gross!). Tanneries use thousands of gallons of water and produce literally TONS of waste in the process. All this pollution and chemicals can increase the risk of leukemia and several other forms of cancer and can also contaminate groundwater, which may poison animals, plants, and humans living nearby.

So obvz, buying—or winning!—humane clothing, shoes, and accessories is an easy way to help animals, the environment, and your fellow human beings.

Leave a comment below telling us what your fave faux-leather product is, and you’ll be in the running for this cool wallet.

Good luck!*

*The winner will be chosen at random from submitted animal-friendly comments in which the commenters tell us what their favorite faux-leather product is. Entries must be received by November 2, 2012. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on November 5, 2012. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

    I love faux coats, bracelets, and purses because i beleive animals shouldn’t be harmed to make leather products. It’s just plain wrong and inhumane.

But I’m so mad cuz this girl, I was telling her about the Canadian Seal Slaughter and she was all like “I mean, people need their clothes, and fur is so cute!” I went beserk and I said “That doesn’t mean you have to beat animals in the head with clubs or skin them alive! You can wear cotton, pleather, etc!!!!!!”

    I’ve got a pleather jacket, from Paris Blues, which I’ve made my patches and pins sort of DIY project. Anyhow, I get quite a few comments on how good the leather looks. People tend to be quite shocked when I tell them it’s not.

    To me, faux is unattractive too. I don’t even like to imitate or fake wearing animal skin or fur. The only single accessory I have that is made to resemble the “real thing” is my mock leather wallet made out of rubber tires. I got it for Christmas many years ago and it has lasted a long time:) sometimes I don’t like pulling it out, however, because I don’t want anyone else to think I support the leather industry. I can’t have others believe im keeping a dead piece of flesh folded in my pocket!

    I dont specifically set out for products that look or are leather or fur. I dislike having noticeable products. But I love products that I come across and am not disappointed to find are faux. Its a shame when you come across something super cute to find out its leater or some other animal :/

    I’ve always loved the smooth, cool texture of leather, but was disgust when I realized that it was basically sun-cooked skin. However, Kohl’s has a decent selection of faux leather jackets. They are a lot less expensive than their genuine counterparts and are also more water resistant. I currently own a black faux leather bomber jacket that I bought from their Sandusky, OH location and I love it. It still has that same smooth, cool feel to it and continues to keep me warm. Even if you aren’t completely disgusted by wearing a dead animal’s roasted skin, you’ll still love the huge price difference.

    I’ve always loved the smooth, cool feel of leather, but the concept completely disgusted me when I was informed as to what it really was. At Kohl’s, however, there is a collection of faux leather jackets that have that same smooth, cool texture and can still keep you warm. They also generally cost less than their genuine counterparts. I currently have a black faux leather bomber that I picked up from the Kohl’s in Sandusky, OH and on top of everything else, it seems to also be more waterproof.
