Because animals are NOT fabric.
To celebrate Earth Day, U.K. denim label Monkee Genes amped up its eco-friendly cred by partnering with peta2!
Monkee Genes is in a league of its own when it comes to offering products that are as kind to the Earth as they are to animals, and now the label is taking its compassion even further by introducing a limited-edition “PETA-Approved Vegan” faux-leather patch.
The leather industry is a global killer that wreaks havoc on the environment and kills more than 1 billion animals every year. Most leather comes from countries where animal welfare laws are either non-existent or not enforced. Cows and other animals killed for their skin endure castration, branding, tail-docking and dehorning—all without any painkillers. If you love animals, it’s simple—don’t wear them. Pledge to be leather-free!
