Alright so your parents didn't really understand what you
meant by pleather and your not digging the wool gloves. Well, no need to
fret, kindly return those presents and get yourself the veganized version.
If you're a big Paul Frank fan, Delias has got just what
you need. They generally carry Paul Frank hoodies, shoes, tee-shirts and
sometimes shoes. Always double check the labels, but Paul Frank is really
good about not using leather or wool. Delias, on a whole has plenty of
animal-friendly clothing. You can check out their website by going to
Having a hard time finding some non-leather shoes? I know
I had a hard time unless I bought really cheaply made Payless shoes. Vans
makes it possible to wear a comfortable shoe and be animal-friendly all at
the same time. The Vans Rowley edition shoes are all synthetic derived and
are probably the comfiest shoes I've ever had the pleasure of setting my
feet into. Just go to www.vans.com and search around the site for new pair
of styling' shoes.
The Argyle is back, but your parents probably thought
buying it from J. Crew was a good idea since they can be tricky to find.
Unfortunately J. Crew likes to use all wool but do not fear Amazon can
once again save the day. Through their website you can find a variety of
cruelty-free argyle sweaters made from acrylic and cotton. You can check
them all out by going to www.amazon.com and typing argyle sweaters.
For some reason your grandparents weren't really
comfortable with the digital age and got you that old 35mm camera. Little
do your grandparents know that film is derived from animals. Let's just
take a look at the variety of inexpensive digital cameras and maybe a few
expensive ones at the www.circuitcity.com website;). Make sure to check out
the canon s410 or maybe if you are on a smaller budget the canon a400. All
can be found by just going to
Hope that gives everyone a few options if their presents
don't come out as animal-friendly as they would have liked them to be.
