Will YOU Take 'The First Step'?

Check out all the details below and then click "Get Points" to submit a form for points!

You probably wouldn’t want to be caught walking around with a dead cow stuck to your feet all day, would you? Ehhh, probably not. But guess what?

If your shoes are made from leather, that’s exactly what you’re doing.

That’s pretty F#&KED UP, right?!

The good news? Your pals at peta2 and Macbeth Footwear are making it really easy for YOU to take “the first step” toward helping animals who are killed and used for leather. Oh, and did I mention we’re even hooking you up with a sweet discount on peta2’s new vegan shoe by Macbeth?!

    This sucks, I donated my black leather converse last week but forgot to take a picture! Is it okay if I use my other non-leather converse to get points?

    So glad I saw this… I can get rid of my wretched dance shoes since I’m not in dance class anymore! I couldn’t find any place with any alternatives…. it was the worst part of my day having to wear those shoes. ):

    I honestly do this all the time! Didn’t know I could get points for it! I wonder if I have any non-vegan shoes left….
