Vegan Apparel Companies You’ll Want to Add to Your Wardrobe
Shop more consciously with these plant-based fashion brands
As the vegan movement continues to grow, fashion brands are giving consumers the option to wear their ethics on their sleeves and shop more consciously. Being aware of what happens behind the scenes at the apparel companies where you shop is a great way to start curating a cruelty-free wardrobe. Some designers are using eco-friendly or vegan materials in their items to promote a sustainable fashion industry, while others are adding pro-vegan slogans to their tees. Either way, the plant-based lifestyle is proving to be quite stylish.
Vegetaryn offers an array of trendy apparel that is 100% sweatshop-free, fair-trade, vegan, and ethically made in Los Angeles. Whether you’re looking for a cheeky slogan tee like “wear pink not mink” or just want to learn more about the plant-based life, this brand’s website is worth a visit.
