Cash for Cows Definitely Wows

On the heels of government rebate programs to exchange old, smelly products for brand-spanking-new ones, PETA is working with our friends MooShoes to give compassionate New Yorkers $10 off the purchase of fabulous vegan footwear when they turn in a pair of shoes made from the skins of dead, abused animals.

Leather is bad for animals and bad for the environment, so there’s no excuse to keep wrapping your tootsies in it. And now, newly compassionate NYC consumers who don’t have the money for a cruelty-free wardrobe makeover (hint, hint, TLC—that’d be a ratings shoe-in!) can get at least a little help. Anyone who brings in a pair of leather sneakers, pumps, or loafers to the MooShoes store in New York before September 27 will receive a $10 credit toward a pair of snazzy vegan shoes.

MooShoes will donate all the leather shoes it receives to the homeless youth shelter Streetwork Project, making this one cattle drive with a happy ending.
