Dear ‘Ethical Meat Eater’, Just Stop It.

12 Dec


Dear ‘Ethical’ Meat Eater,

Does it matter if the dead animal you are eating was factory farmed or free range?


What you are eating is DEAD. No matter how it was raised it was KILLED. So you could EAT IT.


Does that dead piece of bloody flesh care whether it got to graze in a friggin field or whether it was abused in a factory farm?


That animal is already dead cuz of your blood lust so if you think you are all ‘ethical’ cuz it WAS ‘free range’…


Stay Chizzle,

freerangers 3

Freerangers is an awesome vegan shoe, belt and accessory maker based in the U.K. All of their offerings are not only cruelty free but handmade as well. What strikes me the most about Freerangers is how diverse the ‘attitude’ and ‘style’ of their pieces are. There truly is something for everyone.

Their extensive catalog of offerings are all for sale on the net. And yes they do ship to the US. I emailed them to ask if they did and got a super kind reply. I now look forward to placing my order with them. I love handmade, vegan anything, and hand-made vegan fashions are not so easy to come by.

Since everything is made to order, by hand, they do take a bit longer to ship. Keep this in mind if you are planning to buy someone some Freerangers fashions as a gift. Men, women and children are all covered, cruelty-free so get to shopping below…

The world of mens vegan fashions is really getting robust and well rounded. As a vegan man, there is officially nothing holding one back from looking good while being cruelty-free. Jaan J is helping to add to this awesomeness with their luxury vegan neckties. Jaan J replicates the look and feel of a silk tie but while using satin, since silk is not vegan because requires the killing of silk worms and is an animal by product, this company picks up where mother nature left off.

Jaan J. offers traditional ties, custom ties, bow ties that are pre tied or self tied as well as skinny ties. There accessories line includes tie clips, necklaces, cuff links, lapel pins and pocket squares. Their offerings are all beautiful and the company themselves have been awarded the ‘Proggy Award’ by PETA for creating such beautiful, cruelty-free ties. Jaan J is also an active supporter of Human Society. They are a good company all around.

They are currently have a tie sale, $20 ties, no returns, no exchanges. Peep it below…

The Big Skinny Wallet.

4 Apr

Is there anything more annoying than a huge over-stuffed wallet in your purse or pocket? Ugh. I truly loathe when my wallet looks like a stuffed sausage and I am sure most of you will agree with me. So apparently we are not the only ones who feel this way which lead to the invention of ‘The Big Skinny Wallet’. This wallet can hold as much as your standard leather wallet but will take up 50-70% less room. You can hold up to 25 cards plus cash and there is even a ‘Super Skinny’ that holds up to 40 cards and cash. Needless to say, you will be able to fit what your looking to carry around.

The best thing about The Big Skinny Wallet is that it is 100% vegan, no animal products are used in any form to make these wallets. And not to mention the owner/inventor is vegan himself, so you are supporting a fellow veg head when you buy a Big Skinny. There are lots of colors to choose from and many different textures to boot and they are all waterproof. Everyone who rocks one of these wallets cannot help but to rave about them 🙂

Get The Skinny Below…

All of Beyond Skin’s shoes are made in Spain and they use a unique eco and animal friendly material from Italy called, Dinamica to make many of their shoes. Dinamica is made from 100% post consumer recycled bottles. Pretty neat, huh?
