That’s it for now!  But if you’re wondering why you don’t see anything from famous winter boot brands like Sorel or Canada Goose, it’s because they’ve informed us that they don’t have any winter boots (or footwear at all) that is free from animal-derived materials and ingredients. Major bummer. 

If you’d like to help change that, all you have to do is ask them to make vegan offerings.

If enough people ask, they’ll see the market demand is there, and might choose to offer vegan products.

If you reach out and they reply, please let us know what they say!
