Fashion is becoming more and more influential and is now considered a crucial component of today’s culture and society.

Luxury labels offer numerous and varied products in order to create trends and increase sales. As a result, fast fashion brands create similar pieces, at cheaper prices, in order to make these products available to the masses. However, very few of these products actually consider ethical and environmental issues. In fact, society rarely focuses on the story of the brand, but rather on its external appearance.

We need to be intelligent buyers, make choices and stop being ignorant.

Each year millions of cattle, sheep, goats and pigs are butchered because of their meat and their skin. In fact, the skin is the most valuable part of these “economically useful” animals and the most important product from the meat industry. Moreover, the results of the initial process of breeding the animals and the final process of working their skin alarmingly affect the land, the environment and humanity.

Livestock breeding takes up to 70% of the entire land used for farming and about 30% of the surface of this planet; in addition, 90% of the destruction of tropical rain forests is due to intensive livestock farming. Whilst 49% of the annual worldwide corn crop and 90% of the annual worldwide soybeans crop are consumed by 20 billion livestock. The worldwide hunger problem would no longer exist if the crops and the land consumed by these animals were used for man instead. The production of leather also causes environmental pollution due to various chemicals used and an enormous consumption of water. Lastly, it increases the over production of methane gas and so the greenhouse effect.
