November 17, 2015

Now that the wrapping paper’s all swept away, it’s time to start thinking about the year ahead. The custom of starting the New Year with a resolution has good intentions behind it. With a little self-reflection, we all see areas of our life that we’d like to improve and bad habits that we’d like to shake. But for most, our resolutions don’t get very far as the force of habit take hold again.

November 09, 2014

Most leather comes from the skin of animals raised for meat. Contrary to popular belief, animal skins (along with wool, fur, feathers) are not the byproduct of the meat industry. In fact, a cow’s skin can be the most profitable portion of the cow’s body, making up half of all profits of slaughterhouses that process cattle. Leather is a not a by-product, it is a co-product. This means that leather helps make the meat industry—and animal farming—profitable, which is destroying the planet.
