Oh my friends! This article in The Guardian hits right square on the head of the nail for us here at Jag & Nevie. It is a personal pet peeve (pun intended) that animal rights are often the only Eco concern the fashion industry has and only because PETA makes such a fuss. While we uphold vegan values of course, it is the health of the entire globe that drives our machine, so I'm happy to see someone highlight the issue so succinctly. It's short article, please take a gander.
