10 Vegan Clothing Brands Giving Back to Animals

December 14, 2016

Vegan clothing brands with environmentally friendly and ethical philosophies have successfully made the transition from emerging trend to fashion staple. And while fashion has always seemed to equate glamour with cruelty to animals through its obsession with fur and leather, some progressive and innovative designers have made giving back to our furry friends a key component of their brand by donating profits to causes such as anti-poaching efforts and shelters. Now, consumers seeking organic and sustainable wardrobes have the opportunity to make a difference and look good in the process.   What’s not to love? To help you get started, I’ve highlighted ten of these amazing vegan clothing brands below.

1. One Tribe Apparel


One Tribe Apparel donates $1 per every pair of pants sold to Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, a sanctuary that has been rescuing and rehabilitating elephants for over 20 years.

2. Snare Wire Jewelry

From their creation, Miomojo has partnered with Animals Asia, an organization trying to stop the bear bile trade and shut down bear farms. More than 10,000 bears are kept in captivity while their bile is extracted in painful and invasive ways, ultimately leaving them with severe infections. In 2014, Miomojo donated $20,000 in aid. They offer exclusive collections of phone covers and bags, featuring the bears in addition to a wide collection of stunning handbags.

A standout among vegan clothing brands with a high-fashion sophistication, each collection at Animal Behavior is inspired by an endangered species to increase awareness. The company donates 5% from each purchase to Panthera, a group that works to conserve and protect the amur leopard, an endangered species close to extinction. All clothing is locally made in California from recycled textile waste like excess samples and leftovers from overproduction. In order to counter the environmental impact of shipping, Animal Behavior also donates to carbon offset programs for each shipment.

Sevenly describes their movement as “cause-art,” producing adorable graphic tees and artwork that have raised over 4 million dollars for charities.   Each week, they feature a new “cause of the week” and a collection to go along with it! When you buy a shirt from the collection, Sevenly donates $7. For other items purchased, Sevenly gives 7% to their partner causes. Not sure what to choose? Try my personal favorite—the cause box. Each quarter, you’ll receive $150 worth of products from Sevenly’s favorite socially conscious brands. To stock the boxes, they work with companies like Parker Clay who are empowering women by providing jobs.
