I went shoe shopping yesterday and was a little confused. I know this may sound like a completely asanine question, but if a shoe is labled "made from all man made materials" does that mean they are vegan?
Right before I left to go shopping, I received an email from PETA with a video showing the disgusting, torturous metheds used in the fur trade industry. As horrible as it sounds, I never really gave too much thought to what my shoes were made of. After watching the video I checked out every pair of shoes before I even tried them on and made sure they were made from man made materials. I was able to find 3 really cute pairs and feel so much better about wearing them. Even though I became vegan for health reasons, its beginning to branch out and change my ways of thinking and behaving in other areas of my life. I'm kind of proud of myself! Thanks again, Michelle for your help!
@Diane. I still have my down comforter. I've had it since well, right before I became vegan 5 years ago. My way of looking about it is you can't change the past. Move forward and make better choices. AND it is actually a good way to tell people what you have learned when they ask you questions about it!!!
@ Ann, Did you look at all of them? Some of them have some seriously cute shoes. I was just trying to cover ALL tastes.
michelle - thanks for the links! I did look but I am so freakin' weird about shoes -I walk so much and have to have comfort, low heel and cuteness - often these three things are mutually exclusive in a shoe! vegan or not! if they are cute, they are high, if they are comfy they are anything but cute, if they are flat and cute they hurt......I'm like the goldilocks of shoes looking for the one that's just right..... I will keep up the search.....
