Citrus Heights, CA., March 20, 2019/PRNewswire/ -- BEARPAW, a global leader in footwear for women, men and children, introduced PETA-approved vegan styles to their product line. The brand is now offering vegan versions of their classic boot and slipper - Elle Short, Elle Tall, and Loki, featuring a wool-free lining and suede-free exterior. All are constructed with 100% vegan microsuede upper, a polyester blend lining and a lightweight rubber outsole.

"We are excited to introduce vegan versions of BEARPAW's classic styles to our eco-conscious consumers. Our team has been working closely with PETA to ensure that we are compliant with vegan industry standards and is very proud of the outcome. We hope to continue working with PETA and expanding our vegan offerings in the future," said John Pierce, BEARPAW President.

"Today's consumers reject cruelty to animals, so BEARPAW's decision to ban rabbit fur is as business-savvy as it is compassionate," says PETA Director Danielle Katz.
