Finland: Helsinki Fashion Week Pledges To Go Leather Free !



Big news! Helsinki Fashion Week has pledged to go leather-free.

In a stand against the leather industry’s cruelty to animals and environmental devastation, leather will be prohibited on Helsinki Fashion Week catwalks from July 2019.

The event – held annually in Finland’s capital – is known for promoting sustainable fashion. But there’s nothing sustainable about the leather trade. In fact, each year, the industry – which is one of the world’s biggest polluters – kills over a billion animals.

These intelligent, defenceless individuals are often confined to extremely small enclosures and subjected to mutilations, such as castration, without any pain relief. Some are skinned and dismembered alive – all for the sake of fashion.

Thankfully, we don’t have to harm animals to be able to wear stylish, luxurious clothing and accessories. Vegan leather – including innovative, high-tech options made from sustainable, plant-derived materials – is on the rise.

Will you say “no” to leather by pledging to wear only your own skin and to let animals keep theirs?
