Small Business Offering Cruelty Free Choices that Fit Your Lifestyle
Posted on 09 December 2016
Cruelty-Free choices don’t have to be a statement.
While many people believe fashion should make a visual statement, it doesn’t always have to. Consider traditional looking vegan dress shoes that offer comfort, quality and convenience at a competitive price. Without sacrificing those things that are important to you as consumers, you can show the world that cruelty free options can be part of everyday fashion while supporting the small businesses that try to make a difference.
Why is this important?
Small businesses, like Sole & Stone Vegan Footwear, contribute to local economies by bringing growth and innovation to the communities they work in. 64% of new jobs are generated from small businesses and make up for 44% of the United States’ private pay roll, according to the U.S. Small Business Association.
Small and sustainable companies make an impact
Many companies that make sustainable products also practice sustainability in their efforts to make an impact in a community. This has evolved into a larger business model that has patented other well-crafted and sustainable products that have advanced health, education and economic opportunity for communities around the world. Giving small businesses the chance to flourish lets them push the envelope and give back to their communities in a profound way. While this system can have a huge impact, it’s often based on making small choices – like choosing to buy quality vegan shoes.
