Every year, the global fashion industry kills billions of animals and wreaks havoc on the environment. Vegan jackets and accessories—which are free of leather, wool, and other animal-derived materials—are better for animals, the planet, and you.

Noize helps consumers shop kindly with PETA-approved, high-quality, innovative outerwear designed to last many seasons. Noize’s collection for 2024’s GRAMMY® stars features supple, durable, water-resistant vegan leather as well as wind-resistant, itch-free vegan wool fabrics.

Other celebrities who scooped up a vegan jacket at PETA’s booth included Jordin Sparks, Oprah, Sista Strings, Burna Boy, and more.

Leather is a coproduct of the viciously cruel meat industry. Workers often brand cows with hot metal, cut off their tails, and cut out bulls’ testicles—all without any pain relief. At the slaughterhouse, workers skin and dismember them—even though they may still be conscious. Cows are extremely intelligent animals who develop complex relationships, can perform difficult tasks, and even mourn the deaths of their loved ones. They’re known to go to extraordinary lengths to escape from slaughterhouses.

Left alone, sheep grow just enough wool to protect themselves from extreme temperatures. But those that humans have selectively bred produce an excessive coat, which workers violently cut away from their bodies, often wounding them in the process. Shearing is far from being “just a haircut”: Workers have been repeatedly documented punching, kicking, and stomping on terrified, sensitive sheep.

These animals experience fear when they’re separated from their social groups or approached by strangers. They can recognize the faces of at least 50 other sheep and can remember 50 different images for up to two years.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
