So, why Vegan T-shirts? Veganism is simply a lifestyle which seeks, as far as possible and practicable, to reduce animal suffering by any means necessary. This can be done in a variety of ways, from avoiding animal products in food to avoiding animal suffering when it comes to cosmetics.
One thing that many people do not take into account is clothing as well. When we think of animal-derived clothing, the first thing that may come to our minds is leather and fur. While this is indeed true, other materials, such as silk or wool, can be taken from animals through unethical means. Animals in these industries are often abused and treated like products than living beings, and this needs to change.
Each year, over 100 million animals are slaughtered for fashion. This is an outrage. Millions of animals are suffering just so that a few people can wear a coat a couple of times before throwing it away. Even more animals are raised for the purpose of wool, and generally, at the end of their lives when productivity goes down, they are slaughtered for someone’s dinner plate.
We can prevent this by purchasing vegan clothing. By wearing a shirt with a vegan message on it, it starts the discussion with others about the topic. This way, instead of trying to convince other people of your worldview, THEY will come to YOU and ask you about your shirt. You can use this time to talk about where you got it, and why. This can potentially save the lives of thousands of animals.
The clothes that we sell, for instance, are made of 100% preshrunk cotton. This is because we believe that animals lives should come before the making of clothing. In this day and age, with all kinds of alternatives to choose from, there is no reason to wear animal products.
