Farm animals are cute, and they also play an important role in modern society. Take some time to appreciate them this World Farm Animals Day. Created in memory of Ghandi, who believed in treating all living beings with respect, World Farm Animals Day was founded to highlight the poor conditions suffered by some farm animals, and promote awareness in the hope something may be done to improve their lives.
While World Farm Animals Day has an important and sad origin in the sense that it raised awareness of suffering, it can be celebrated in different ways. Taking children for a visit to a farm is a great way to teach them about farm animals, and it’s a good chance to instil in them the message of treating animals with respect. Another great way to celebrate is by donating to an animal protection charity of your choice. (Original Source: World Farm Animals Day)
Also, a good way to support World Farm Animals is to buy products that don’t harm animals at all. For that, we have provided 5 outfits for you to support fashion that is sustainable and no animals were harmed for these products.
Cosy and Hip
Hemp is the toughest plant, the strongest fiber, it eats the most CO2 and makes the most biomass in the shortest time while (mind you!) regenerating the soil.
So yeah, give it a break. Hemp can get a little slouchy on the weekend. It’s fine.
Who doesn’t love the perfectly cut slouchy sweater – you’ll love this version made with vegan and naturally breathable hemp, softened with organic cotton. Looks just as great with sweats as loosely tucked into a skirt or shorts – take it everywhere you go.
Stella McCartney’s black trousers echo a nautical tone similar to vintage navy uniforms. They’re crafted in Italy from a tight knit known as Punto Milano, sitting high on the waist with two rows of logo-debossed gold-tone metal buttons and fall to a cropped, wide-leg silhouette. Style them with a pussy-bow blouse and leather pumps for a museum opening.
A lifelong vegetarian, McCartney does not use any leather or fur in her designs. So, the Guardian described her in 2015 as a “consistent and vocal” supporter of animal rights. She supports PETA. Some of McCartney’s designs have text that elaborates on her “no animal” policy. For example, one of her jackets for Adidas says, “suitable for sporty vegetarians” on the sleeve. A pair of her vinyl and boots were marketed specifically as being vegan-friendly, although her use of oil-based synthetics still raised ecological concerns.

Simple and Stylish
Long sleeve turtleneck with a fitted silhouette, made from our ultra-soft ribbed beechwood blend. This versatile top is perfect to tuck into jeans or wear as a first layer.
Modal is a variety of rayon, made exclusively from the renewable fiber of beech trees. Beechwood fibers make an amazing modal fabric that is biodegradable and free of pesticides. Their blends are cool to the touch, breathable and luxuriously soft. Made in a closed-loop process, the fibers are twice as soft as cotton, hold vibrant colors, and maintain their exquisite hand even after repeated washing. Silky smooth and so indulgently soft, the beechwood fabric is the absolute highest-quality blend of Modal and spandex that makes for tops, tees, and dresses you’ll never want to take off.
From all the brands that use beechwood fibers, we recommend Amour Vert (read more here), because with every t-shirt purchased they plant a tree. So when you’re trying to dress warm, start with the right t-shirt. Tees for trees, YAY!
Wear’ em Everywhere
Hemp is an extremely fast-growing crop, producing more fiber yield per acre than any other source. It can produce 250% more fiber than cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all-natural textile fibers. It also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber. It doesn’t wear out, it wears in. Hemp is also naturally resistant to mould and ultraviolet light. Its porous nature allows hemp to “breathe,” so that it is cool in warm weather. Furthermore, air which is trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making hemp garments naturally warm in cooler weather. [Original source]
