There’s an Ethical Way to Winterize Your Wardrobe
On Tuesday, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tweeted a harebrained list of “anti-animal” phrases that they deemed due for an upgrade, to the raucous dunking of the internet. The list is all the more regrettable because it trivializes a very real problem: animal cruelty. You don’t have to be a bleeding-heart vegan to be concerned about the inhumane treatment to which many animals are subjected, and it’s a particular issue around winter clothing, in which animal fur and feathers are coveted for both fashion and function. Canada Goose is a fashionable jacket brand, but its treatment of the wild coyotes whose fur gives them their warmth makes a lot of consumers squeamish. Fur coats have always been stylish but as you’re probably aware, wearing the real deal takes a heavy toll on real creatures.

Part of being financially responsible includes weighing the ethics of what you’re buying, so if you want a cruelty-free way to get your wardrobe winterized for the colder seasons, here are a few places to start.

Patagonia

It’s in vogue for brands to hop on the cruelty-free bandwagon these days, but Patagonia’s been there since day one, building an environmentally conscious ethic into its DNA via their mission statement: “Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.”

 

North Face
