“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.

Superlative Deviation: Life With Meaning, Life With Joy

I completed my first novel at the beginning of this month and am now consulting with my mentor and life coach on the next steps, not only in my career but also in my life. As Alura has told everyone, it’s vital during this time to continue working on your higher self goals. The global depression is meant to take you off your path and destroy everything you’ve fought so hard for. It’s not the end of the world, just the end of the world we used to know. Not everything will be destroyed, and there will be a time to rebuild. While the new world is not going to be a very good one, we can make our own worlds just the way we want them to be and then unite to make a community that helps others.
