As I slowly transition into veganism (it's early days though) I thought I should really should consider my style. The main areas of concern for me were leather and wool. I don't really wear silk, shearling, fur or animal skins. I know there are more animals used in the clothing industry but I don't want to waste any more time listing them all. Here's a link if you're interested. Leather was always engrained my brain as a badass material that just made me cooler. However after watching Earthlings and seeing the truth behind how leather is produced it lost it's appeal. There are so many faux leather options and they're always cheaper! As for wool (for warmth in the winter) I can use flannel and acrylic. I just have to be more diligent about checking tags, shop around more and look into thrift shops more. It's worth it.
I have fallen in love with graphic novels this year and honestly I hope to buy and read all the books mentioned below this year. As I said previously I think graphic novels are get me out my reading slum and make it so I don't feel like "such a slow reader". I hoping to build up to tome books... eventually. I'll tackle you one day Game of Thrones! Damn beast of a book then I'll be able to enjoy the TV show.
