Shop Aware

Humane options include pleather, PVC, polyurethane, man-made materials, rayon, cotton, polyester, nylon, viscose, etc. When in doubt, it’s best to skip it. Although these fabrics are humane and not animal derived, they are not necessarily environmentally friendly. It is wise to get in the habit of reading labels when you shop so you know exactly what you are buying and that it aligns with your values.
