Lit. Update: Future Steps

It feels good to finally have my poetry book released in some form. However, the work doesn't stop there. Now I face the challenges of promoting it. As I already knew, "self-publishing" requires you to fund most of the work yourself. It gets disheartening and a bit stressful, but it's what I have to do… Continue reading Lit. Update: Future Steps

“The Challenging Reality: Wool and Ethics”

Latest installment in the mini series “The Challenging Reality” has been posted to S.D.!

Superlative Deviation: Life With Meaning, Life With Joy

One of the topics I’ve been learning about recently has been the use of wool in the fabric industry. Generally, we as vegans tend to be very much against this practice and advocate for plant-based textiles made from hemp, organic cotton, recycled fibers, etc. as replacements for animal-derived fibers. However, I’ve discovered there are some interesting points people often overlook.

This might not apply to everyone. I’m speaking strictly from personal experience. Over the years, I’ve found that staying away from wool has become an incentive to purchase cheaper, fast fashion items made from synthetics that are almost always derived from (you guessed it) plastic. Plastic, as previously mentioned, will be shed into the environment sooner or later, regardless of what form it takes. Lately there has been a shift in the fashion industry to produce more “vegan” and “vegan-friendly” clothing. However, like synthetic leather, many of the products I’m…

“The Challenging Reality: Vegan Leather”

First installment of the mini series “The Challenging Reality” on Superlative Deviation.

Superlative Deviation: Life With Meaning, Life With Joy

Recently, I have been furthering my understanding of vegan and cruelty-free topics – specifically with regards to clothing, textiles, and manufacturing. As someone who never conformed to what most people saw as a normal diet and was considered by many to be vegetarian before it was “cool”, I was thrilled to see the huge selection of food items, personal care products, and clothing that suddenly became vegan-friendly. However, the key word is “suddenly”.

This post will focus primarily on research I’ve been doing and questions I’ve been asking about the vegan leather industry. These questions were prompted by necessary changes to my wardrobe, mainly in the shoe category. Because I am a person who walks almost everywhere, I’m very practical when it comes to footwear. Arch support issues, toe shape, and personal style makes me almost impossible to fit. When I need new shoes (which is almost all the time)…
