Most of vegans are widespread about the cruelty involved in fur and leather productions; and eating meat is like killing animal.
Is using leather bad? These are some criticisms I am struggling with myself.
Firstly, notice that I don’t encourage for abusing animal, I watched and read many horrible realities of factory farming. I am ethical and passionate about environmental impacts.
Does anyone think that being vegetarians could kill animals? Some people may laugh but its true that the dairy cows and laying hens have to be killed in order to supply you with those products like eggs, milk or cheese. Most of the eggs we eat are unfertilized one and after 2-3 eggs circle, chickens would have to be killed. So if you are vegetarian, you are also responsible for animal deaths!
Secondly, I refuse to judge people the way they eat, same as the way they wear.
Nowadays, have to say that from clothing and accessories to furniture, leather is found everywhere. Using leather is also not “vegan” but is it better to use something like a “synthetic” item that would taken hundreds of years to decompose and full of chemicals?
Is leather bad ? It’s a meat byproduct of meat industry, we don’t use it, it will go to waste. The leather was removed after the animals were actually dead.
I know there are many options of cruelty-free, environment- friendly products but these kinds of products are not really cheap with a good quality and what can be sustainable if they are really ” green”.
There are many things to do to keep a green and better planet, for example: behaving( treating people around you well, helping others ) or thrifting ( saving electricity and water ) ?
To me, veganism is just only the food choice to have a better health, I feel like a hypocrite whenever I said about stop eating meat or using leather because of the animal love.
Is using leather really bad? And become a vegan is that good? Everything has two sides: bad and good. I don’t claim to be perfect.
I love leather, it’s not an accurate reflection of my character if my choice is using leather products.
