You can be working-class and vegan!

Payless shoe stores (stores in Webster Square, Worcester, and all over Worcester County) have a great selection of cruelty-free, on-trend handbags, wallets, boots, shoes and sneakers! Just ask to be shown their leather-free goods!

And their sales are terrific! ICT editor Rosalie T. bought this fringed bag for $10.

You don’t need to make a lot of dough to save animals. Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Target all carry cosmetics and personal care products that are not tested on animals or contain animal-derived ingredients: PHYSICIANS FORMULA, ELF, BURT’S BEES, WET ‘N’ WILD, TOM’S OF MAINE… Cost? $3 and up! Their lip balm, hand creams, body lotions and glam eye shadow make great stocking stuffers! They’re also a great way to introduce loved ones to cruelty-free products and animal rights this holiday season!

Educate the people!

Highlighting the vegan-leather footwear revolution and reminding us how the new trend helps rectify disastrous effects of the leather industry, Stephanie Nicora, owner and founder of NICORA, gives PETA an unprecedented insider’s look at her process of creating 100 percent cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and fair-wage handmade shoes made from all-recycled materials in the company’s Los Angeles factory.

Here’s a woman who is revolutionizing the footwear industry with her tasteful, stylish collection — a vision that’s dazzled the public and her celebrity fans alike.

“Consumers are more committed than ever to choosing options that are good for animals, the environment, and the health and safety of industry workers,” Nicora says. “We’re meeting that demand with a tasteful, fashionable product that everyone can feel good about.”

More and more companies are choosing to use cruelty-free and sustainable materials every day.

Feeling inspired? It’s never been easier to wear vegan!
