Now that summer is over, it’s time to start looking for ways to stay warm, and as you probably know, finding high-quality vegan winter coats can be a tricky.
The struggle to find cruelty-free clothing is real and the vegan community knows how tiring it can be to find vegan jackets that are both stylish and ethical.
That’s why this article is going to provide you with a list of all the best vegan winter coats from some amazing brands.
My fellow vegans, the search is over. Keep on reading to check out the best vegan winter coats available in 2021.
Vegan Winter Coats?
Being vegan doesn’t only mean avoiding meat and dairy, but it also means avoiding animal cruelty in all aspects of life. So that’s why we need to be aware of everything we purchase, not just think about our food.
Traditional winter coats tend to be lined with fur or leather since both of these animal-based materials are good insulators. However, these aren’t the only materials available to us that are great at keeping us warm, so using these animal products is in no way necessary.
And while many believe that wool can be collected harmlessly and sustainably, the truth is that the fast-fashion industry has led to cruel treatment of these animals, regardless. That’s why the best idea is to always avoid animal products at all costs.
So now that you know why it’s so important to only wear ethically-made clothes, check out this list of great vegan winter coats:
