I recently decided that I want a pair of Birkenstock sandals and tattoos all over my body. The only problem, Birkenstock sandals are made out of leather and I’d rather not wear mammal parts on my feet – or anywhere on my person for that matter. It feels disrespectful. Scratch that, it is extremely disrespectful and inhumane. Watch Stella McCartney discuss the gruesome details of the leather industry, here.
So, I started a half sleeve and googled “vegan sandals.” I win.
