Living in a Toxic Soup

As our bodies get poisonous and sick, so do our thoughts. It can’t be ignored any longer: the overload of toxic synthetic chemicals is slowly poisoning our planet and those who live on her. We ALL need to educate ourselves and take action if we are going to survive.

What’s Wrong with Leather?

Millions of cows, pigs, sheep, and goats are slaughtered for their skins every year. They are castrated, branded, dehorned and have their tails docked without anaesthetics.
