Will’s Vegan Store has been at the cutting edge of ethical clothing, footwear and accessories since its inception in 2013 – today it offers a wide range of shoes and boots, but also bags and other accessories, as well as apparel. Plus they have a very popular range of vegan hiking boots and vegan running trainers.
Boasting a slew of awards, such as VegNews Best Vegan Footwear in 2020 and the PETA Achievement Award in 2016, the brand has become a part of the worldwide vegan movement and the go-to name for sustainable fashion by helping people make a positive choice.
About the Founder
Will Green started the label to make it easier for people to make kind choices and bridge the gap between mainstream consumers and vegan fashion. He focuses on creating items of similar quality, affordability and style that consumers can find on the high street.
“I was raised by my mum who was a wholefoods vegetarian back in the 80s, she has been a massive inspiration to me through the years – and today, myself and my wife are raising a vegan child. Living a vegan lifestyle is a foundation of my life.”
Most of Will's Vegan Store footwear incorporates Italian bio-based vegan leather derived from cereal crops. None of their products contain PVC, and they frequently use recycled materials. In 2020, the brand introduced its biodegradable sneaker design made from Tencel, wood fibre, and compressed cardboard detailing.
Will's Vegan Store believes in protecting their workers by ensuring they have rights that cover working hours, time off, equal pay, parental leave, anti-discrimination measures, agency worker protection and health and safety.
All of Will's collections are produced in Italy and Portugal. Will's Vegan Store also became certified as carbon neutral in 2016 in their entire operation. They work on carbon offsetting by participating in projects that work to end deforestation, and they also have a recycling programme where you can return your items at the end of their lifespan.
All of Will's packaging is plastic-free, and made from non-treated paper and cardboard from sustainable sources.
Through working with Animal Aid and the Vegan Society in 2012, Will was first exposed to vegan messages and teachings. With the support of these organisation, he began his vegan journey in 2012. With this background, he was inspired to start Will’s Vegan Store in order to make it easier for people to find good vegan shoes. The company is PETA-Approved Vegan.
