Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather – Help PETA France, and Enter for a Chance to Win

Posted by on July 21, 2015 | Permalink

Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather claims to offer the raddest vegan shoes around, and here at PETA, we couldn’t agree more!

The French footwear company, which is making waves around the world with its stylish sandals, brogues and boots in a selection of attention-grabbing colours and designs, is the latest brand to display our “PETA-Approved Vegan” logo. To celebrate, Good Guys has added to its animal-friendly credentials by branching out into clothing with its first-ever T-shirt. The limited-edition design by singer-songwriter David-Ivar Herman Dune – a vegan of 18 years and a name you may recognise from the folk-rock band Herman Dune or his solo project Black Yaya – features the “PETA-Approved Vegan” logo, and a percentage of the profit from the sale of each T-shirt will go to support PETA France’s life-saving campaigns for animals.

Vegan fashion – clothes, shoes and accessories that contain no leather, fur, wool, skins or any other animal-derived material – is revolutionising the way that we shop and dress. The environmental footprint of animal-free fabrics – regardless of whether they’re natural or synthetic – is minor compared to the devastation caused by animal farming. From carbon emissions produced by cattle to toxic tannery chemicals that pollute nearby water supplies, the leather industry has a terrible impact on the Earth. This includes the thriving dog-leather industry that PETA recently exposed in China – the skins from which are widely mislabelled and exported around the world. In addition to being “greener”, vegan materials spare animals cruelty such as castration, branding and tail-docking.
