Next time you need a new t-shirt or sweatshirt or baseball cap, consider buying from these fashion companies. Not only do they sell items made from organic cotton or hemp, but profits are used to fund the wonderful work of animal charities for pets, wildlife and international welfare issues. In case any items feature polyester or recycled plastic bottles, launder in a microplastic catcher.
clothing to help barnyard friends
Viva! offers nice organic clothing, often with fun colours and designs, and slogans to promote the plant-based lifestyle. This charity not only educates the public on the benefits of being vegan to help animals, but also runs investigations to ensure welfare standards are upheld.
Heartcure Clothing also offers organic clothing to help barnyard friends. This brand is a bit more ‘gothic’ design, and has so far raised over £20,000 for animal sanctuaries.
Vegan Happy Clothing offers a lot of organic cotton clothing choices with nice designs (there’s no filter for 100% organic cotton, so use the search box to find it). The company donates 10% of all profits to animal rescues of all kinds including the rescue of two lambs from a bin (they also support The Farm Animal Sanctuary that is desperate for £30,000 a month in order to keep going, due to rising costs).
clothing brands to help wildlife
Four Paws offers organic cotton clothing for men, women and children, made with green energy and sent in plastic-free packaging. This charity does wonderful work both nationally and internationally.
Wildlife Aid Foundation offers organic cotton clothing of all kinds. Profits are used to help native animals and birds that are injured or suffer trauma through contact with man. Its 300 volunteers help over 20,000 wildlife each year, from scaling trees to rescue stranded bbay owls to cutting fox cubs from garden netting.
Animals Asia offers organic cotton clothing and accessories. Profits help support their work to end the bear bile farming industry in Asia. The charity was founded by an English woman, and has huge success in both education and rescue projects.
Freedom for Animals offers nice organic t-shirts and beanies. Projects help this charity’s work to help animals in zoos (both in the UK and abroad) and to help all animals used for entertainment. This includes reindeer who often are sent terrified to brightly-lit noisy shopping centres to ‘entertain children’ at Christmas.
help street dogs in Sri Lanka
WE Care Worldwide (Sri Lanka) sells cotton t-shirts to fund their work, helping 3 million street dogs (more like wild dogs that find food and places to sleep, but have no vet care). The team offers neutering, vaccinations, vet treatment (including rabies injections) and community education. You can contact them on holiday, if you see dogs needing help (find similar charities online elsewhere).
