I decided, since the official Earth Day is coming up, I'd talk about ways to help the earth through fashion. I actually mentioned a few ways in my other blog posts, but I decided to go into detail here.
I've been wearing nail polish since I was 5 years old. Over the years I've tried a few brands. I didn't stray too far from the brands I knew. I didn't want chemicals or animal byproducts in my nail polish.
Perhaps you don't know what makes nail polish not vegan. Well, I didn't know either. I only knew I didn't want it on my nails. So I decided to research it. Non-vegan nail polish contains gelatin, milk, lanolin, honey, beeswax, royal jelly, and carmine. However just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's cruelty-free.
While researching for this I found out about the toxins in the normal nail polish and realize that a lot of these nail polish brands are very harmful to us when we use them. So I've put together chemical free, cruelty free, and vegan nail polish into a list.
I was excited when I found Koi Footwear, as I am a huge fan of chunky and platform shoes! They are a 100% vegan show company that offer just that! If you are a fan of platform shoes, then please read the rest.
For any outfit, a bag can make it ten times better. Unless it's cheap looking then it sticks out like a sore thumb. Most people buy leather bags for the look and because it lasts much longer. However if you're trying to live a vegan lifestyle then this is a huge no no.
Some might think if you're living a vegan lifestyle then you have no choice but to carry fabric purses. Some like how fabric bags look. I personally don't like fabric bags because, one, to me they're unattractive, and two, they fall apart easily. I prefer the leather look.
As a vegan and a "tree hugger", I find vegan and green fashion important for numerous reason. One being that chemical clothes, like acid-wash jeans, are harmful to the earth. Due to global warming, I believe that we should do all that we can to decrease chemical use.
