80+ Small Businesses to Support While You’re Quarantined

Published by .

During this time of uncertainty, many small businesses are taking major economic hits as quarantines and social distancing shutter storefronts. Luckily, online shopping makes it easy to get what you need and support small businesses at the same time—all while staying safe and healthy in your own home. If you’re looking to do some online shopping and also want to support a good cause, consider buying from a PETA Business Friend. These compassionate companies sell cruelty-free, vegan items and partner with PETA to help our groundbreaking work for animals. Animals need your assistance more than ever. The next time you order something online, consult this list to find a PETA Business Friend that has what you’re looking for.

Here’s a comprehensive list of small businesses that support PETA’s work for animals:


Going vegan is the best way to help stop new deadly viruses from developing. Make sure your kitchen is stocked with vegan food during quarantine. These PETA Business Friends offer everything from prepared meals to vegan coffee, chocolate, meats, powdered creamers, cheese, and more that can be shipped right to your door:

Beauty, Health, and Self-Care Products

While you might be working from home these days, you’ll still want to make sure you look professional on your video conference calls—and maybe just for fun. There’s also no better time to treat yourself to some cruelty-free makeup, skin-care and hair-care products, nail polish, and other animal-friendly self-care goodies to help reduce stress:


Now is a great time to start your spring cleaning, if you haven’t already. Make sure you’re cleaning with animals in mind by choosing products that aren’t tested on animals:


Apparel and Accessories

Round out your vegan-friendly wardrobe with apparel and accessories from one of these PETA Business Friends. If you want to take advantage of spring sales to grab a new coat or jacket, make sure it isn’t made from an animal’s skin, fur, or feathers. Choosing vegan faux fur, wool-free coats, and vegan leather jackets keeps cows, dogs, cats, foxes, rabbits, seals, sheep, and other animals safe from slaughter. Sensitive geese are loyal and partner for life—keep them together by choosing down-free apparel. No matter what you’re looking for, you can rest assured that what you’re buying is animal-friendly when you purchase clothing from one or more of these small businesses:


Cows are friendly animals who love a good cuddle, which is why we only choose shoes that aren’t made of leather. Not only is leather torture for cows, it’s also really bad for the environment. Many of these brands offer shoes that are made of sustainable vegan materials instead of animal-derived materials:


Don’t buy bags made from leather or exotic skins—instead, choose more sustainable styles from these forward-looking brands:

Supplies for Animal Companions

You’re sure to be spending a lot of time with your animal companions right now, so look to these PETA Business Friends for when you need to refresh their supplies:


Entertainment and Travel

Use your free time to learn about the vegan food revolution, take an online course in eating compassionately, or plan your first post-quarantine trip:

Online shopping with PETA Business Friends makes it super-easy to get what you need during quarantine while still supporting the small businesses that help us save animals. While these companies are doing the most for animals, other online retailers are still using animals to make a profit—tell them that you won’t stand for it by taking action today:
