The search for vegan leather and eco vegan shoes have skyrocketed over the past few years. Many shoppers are beginning to realize that most vegan options are not eco friendly or sustainable. The vegan leather label has a certain commercial value, but not to the detriment of mother nature. Vegan leather is often just a euphemism for plastic.
The reality is that everything that is plastic, is classified as vegan. The impact of petrochemicals and the exploration of oil, has a huge negative impact on the environment. The process of producing plastic is not sustainable and is harmful to people, animals and plant life. Choosing plastic free vegan shoes, will help you to reduce your carbon footprint.
