We explained what vegetarianism is in our article “vegan vs vegetarian“. To recap briefly, vegetarians do not eat meat, but they do consume meat products. Vegetarians are against the killing of animals, but how does this apply to clothing products that contain animal products? Do vegetarians wear leather?
As we all know, real leather is an animal product. Sometimes the skins of animals consumed by humans are used in the clothing industry, other times animals are not consumed but are brutally slaughtered just to produce a fashion product.
Do vegetarians wear leather?
What do vegetarians who don’t eat meat think about wearing clothing made from animal products? It is of course not easy to give a definitive answer to this question. It varies from person to person. But in the case of a vegan, you can be sure that vegans definitely don’t wear leather.
However, if you want to give a leather jacket or a product made of leather as a gift to a vegetarian, I would not recommend it. If the person is vegetarian for ethical reasons, vegetarian for the animals, he or she will probably feel uncomfortable.
Serious steps should be taken in the fashion world to boycott the producers selling real leather and we should stop buying their products.
