The Best Eco-Friendly, Vegan Handbags

Lately we’ve been getting a lot more client requests for vegan leather items. Vegan leather sounds like a planet-friendly choice, but it isn’t always. A lot of faux leather is actually made from PVC, which creates dioxins that pollutes waterways and soil and are toxic to our own health. We thought we’d help you out by sharing some of the most eco-friendly brands out there, all of which have sustainable manufacturing practices and use Polyurethane (PU) and other recycled or man made materials.

Happy Eco-Friendly Shopping!

Freedom Of Animals

Freedom of Animals is all about…well, the freedom of animals!  These purses are made of cruelty-free and sustainable materials sourced from eco-friendly manufacturers. Also, Freedom of Animals bags are created in U.S. factories. No “Made in China” stickers on these guys! The purses are named for young elephants that lost their parents to poaching in Africa (poor things).

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney brings her vegetarian values to her products. Not only is the fur and leather industry harmful to animals, but also to us: according to the Stella McCartney website, “meat and leather production is responsible for 18% of all manmade greenhouse gases in the world.” Crazy. So, why contribute to all that damage when you can get snazzy, harm-free bags like these instead?_11101028
