Animal-friendly products are gaining popularity and becoming easier to find. A recent fashion show in Beijing showcased cruelty-free items from China, Korea, the United States and other countries. At the Academy Awards ceremony in California, an actress drew further attention to these products by wearing vegan faux-suede shoes.
Additional retailers have started to carry high-quality fashion items that don't contain animal skin or fur. Some examples of these products include synthetic belts, handbags and notebook computer cases. They are crafted in a way that mimics the look and feel of leather without the need to slaughter animals or otherwise mistreat them.
Many environmentalists also favor cruelty-free clothing and accessories for a variety of reasons. Tanneries frequently harm the environment while exposing their employees to dangerous chemical substances. Vegan shoes, belts and other fashion items offer more eco-friendly options that don't sacrifice comfort or style.
An upcoming segment of "Leading Edge" will look at animal-friendly fashion in greater detail. Host Jimmy Johnson plans to inform the show's viewers about the rising popularity, benefits and changing nature of these products. This segment will also examine relevant production and marketing practices in the global textile industry.
The producers of "Leading Edge" independently distribute the series to PBS TV stations across America. This informational program isn't distributed by the Public Broadcasting Service.
