It was on last October, actress Nikki Reed launched her own line of cruelty-free bags in collaboration with Freedom of Animals. All her handbags are purely vegan and produced in the U.S from recycled plastic from the ocean and landfills. Her line of handbags on which she worked with Freedom of Animals designer Morgan Bogle has been approved by PETA as a vegan line.

Reed is the only non-vegan celebrity running a vegan cause, she reveals in a chat with Cosmopolitan about her plant-based approach without extremism saying,

“For the last seven years I haven't eaten meat or dairy, and I consider myself, for the most part, plant-based. But I don't enjoy labels. I do what works for me. The vegan community, at times, can be very strict and for myself, personally, I don't believe in rules or guidelines. I believe in doing the best you can, when you can, where you can, and making decisions that reflect your morals to the best of your ability.”


She also admitted to using leather in form of a bag or leather shoe saying,

“I still have leather. I still wear leather. I don't approach anything with an extremist mentality. I don't eat meat, but I don't mind people who do. I might have a bag line that's made from recycled plastic, but I can still pull out an old pair of leather shoes that I have from five years ago and wear them.”

She talks more about her vegan line of handbags,

“That's what I love about this line. For me, it has created a shift in my mentality about what I actually consume. This isn't about a vegan bag line, this is an all-encompassing message about us making conscious decisions to do the best we can with fashion.”
