I’ve been a vegetarian for most of my adult life and I do it more for the love of animals than for health reasons. Although I don’t completely abstain from buying leather goods, such as shoes, I do avoid it as much as possible. Avoidance is made so much easier these days with all the vegan or faux leather products on the market like this skirt from ASOS, which is lined to stay sweat free…I also love handbag lines like Big Buddha & Matt & Nat who use recycled plastic bottles to line their bags…and these donuts? totally guilt free!
