Whether you have gone full vegan or think that buying your clothes vegan is an easier way for you to personally limit the amount of animal products you use, there are so many vegan fashion brands to shop from.
Summer is well and truly under way and you may already be thinking about what you’re going to wear when you go back to school. Here are 8 vegan fashion brands that we are loving for you to find that perfect outfit for the new school year!
HeartCure started in 2016 to raise money for Brook Farm Animal Sanctuary, a vegan haven for farmed animals in need. Since starting out two years ago, they have not only raised thousands for the sanctuary but expanded their support to activists and grass roots organisations. They have really cool vegan-themed T-shirts, hoodies and jogger that are ethically made from organic and recycled materials. They also offer worldwide shipping!
In 2013, Bert van Son introduced Lease A Jeans, an innovative approach to offer guilt-free consumption. It did not make sense to him that so many of us keep jeans that we don’t wear, and it didn’t make sense to throw them away either. So, he founded MUD Jeans that creates new jeans from old jeans through a complete circular economy – the only brand to do so. MUD Jeans allows customers to shop guilt free and do good for the environment, while looking fashionable and modern. As a successful vegan fashion brand, they have won several awards, such as the Sustainability Leadership Award and the Peta Vegan Awards.
