4 ways you can make your car more vegan-friendly
Drive happier in a more ethical car
Buying a vegan, environmentally and wallet-friendly motor is near impossible.
With the automotive industry’s love of leather and fossil fuels, it is difficult to purchase a vehicle that aligns with your values as a vegan.
Although sustainable motoring is one of the biggest trends right now, vegan seat coverings are available mostly in new cars, when a driver can make interior design choices.
However, there are ways to make your current car a little bit more ethical.
To help, Peter Vardy have revealed four ways you can make your car more vegan-friendly – and what’s more is it’ll cost you less than £35 in total.
Floor Mats = £15
Car floor mats are frequently made out of Mohair (made from hair of the Angora goat) and animal leather binding.
Fortunately, vegan floor mats made out of synthetic materials are widely available, for as little as £15. Just make sure to check the materials of car mats before purchasing.
Gear Stick Cover = £3
Gear sticks feature an animal leather cover as standard, but these are easy to replace if you want something a more vegan-friendly.
Covers made from a multitude of different, more ethical materials, can be purchased for just £3 from motor accessory retailers.
Handbrake Cover = £7
Handbrakes are often covered with a leather binding, but you can purchase vegan-friendly covers made of faux leather or other fabrics.
You can remove your current cover by taking it to a mechanic or car detailer.
Vegan Cleaning Products = £10
One of the easiest ways to make your car cruelty-free is by switching to vegan cleaning products.
Switching to a Biokleen telescopic fountain brush or CitraClear Window and Glass Cleaner, both trusted brands that don’t test on animals.
Alternatively, you can make your own vegan cleaning solution by mixing half a cup of Borax with one teaspoon of vegetable-based soap and half a bucket of hot water.
