Every year, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation awards the top designs and innovations that support the idea of a cruelty-free home.
The animal rights organisation’s view is that like humans, animals are capable of suffering and should not be subjected to human cruelty and will.
For the 2018 awards, PETA Director Elisa Allen said, ‘Compassionate consumers can adorn their abodes with the beautiful, cruelty-free winners of PETA’s Vegan Homeware Awards. PETA is delighted to honour the forward-thinking companies that are meeting the booming demand for vegan homes with fashionable and functional pieces that are sure to make every space shine’
Take a look at 5 products that won this year out of the 10 cruelty-free home categories the awards are made up of.
