Fortunately, awareness around factory farming has become more mainstream, and many of us now seek and understand the importance of choosing cruelty-free.
Beyond food and beauty, most of us don't pay attention to where the rest of our products come from. Leather, suede, wool, and even fur are used in many luxury items and very few high end brands attempt to make the switch. There is a profound disconnect between these goods and the animals they come from.
Fortunately. there are some brands attempting to make the switch. Bridget Brown whose gorgeous luxury line of vegan handbags, Shop Filbert is one of them, and she is making it all look and feel effortless. All of her styles are clean, simple, and chic
I've only connected with Bridget online (for now), but I'm very excited about what she is doing and I absolutely LOVE my bag. Thank you Bridget for bringing passion into everything you're doing. So glad to have connected.
Your 3 Word Bio
A Mindful Vegan.
One thing the internet doesn't know about you?
I played the washboard in a washboard band in college (in Mississippi, clearly).
The can't live without it daily ritual that keeps you inspired?
Yoga and fresh air.
What is in your desert island cosmetic bag, and how do you use it?
I’d be hard pressed to choose something other than Nucifera because it’s such a multi-tasker! I use it when I travel for extra moisturizing, as a lip balm, to remove makeup (which I wouldn’t be wearing on a desert island, but you never know), hair conditioner, cuticle rub, after-sun lotion…
And since we are on an island... what's your favorite way to use coconut?
Cooking for extra flavor in a veggie stir fry, slathering on every body part, and oil pulling.

What impression do you want to leave?
I hope to bring curiosity to the vegan lifestyle based on the way that I live. I’m always excited when someone comes to me and asks for tips on how to transition. But overall, I’d hope that people’s impression of me is kindness.
