Thoughts on Vegan Work Boots

by Tony B. DIY Enthusiast
If you believe the environment needs our help and more attention to save it, you might consider reducing your animal product consumption. But what do animals have to do with the environment? Well animals eat a lot before they are at a good size to be killed and made into steaks and other meat foods. And with dairy: cows need to be fed more than you can imagine every day so that they product milk. 

Where does all this food for the animals come from? From agriculture and that is the main reason the Amazon forests are being burnt down. Yes those amazon forests that have been described as the "Earths Lungs". We, humans are burning them down to plant food for cows.

So what is the solution? Reduce your meat and dairy consumption and some people choose to be completely vegan. That means you don't wear animal products either. You don't consume or use any animal products.

That is why Vegan type boots have now started to gain popularity. These boots are made with no animal leather or other animal product as opposed to traditional work boots. 

Traditional safety shoes are made with leather uppers because this animal skin in porous enough to allow the feet to be comfortable in the boots and not overheat. This type of breathable shoe material is easy to use and comfortable because it molds to the foods, slightly changing it's shape accordingly. 

Luckily with technology, similar comfortable material can be made for shoes without harming animals. Examples of vegan workbooks like this include  
  • Combs Nylon Combat Boot 
  • Vegan 2976 Chelsea Boot by Dr. Marten’s 
  • TeslaDri RF120 Vegan Friendly Boot by Rock Fall
