Who can join?

animal ethical has the following requirements:

PLEASE MAKE TIME TO READ ALL OF THIS SO THAT YOU ENSURE YOU ACTUALLY CAN BE ON THE TEAM, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I do not require you are vegan or vegetarians. Just that you respect and believe that animals should be treated very well.
Your favourites must be visible and not private in order to belong to the team.
Member shops shall not have for sale:
Items made of real fur pelts (fake/faux fur is fine) including vintage and sheepskin (wool alpaca mohair is only the shedded or shorn hair and is allowed)
Taxidermy
Specimens (for example, dead octopus in a jar)
Real insects unless they were collected after dying a natural death in a natural environment
Tortoise and turtle shell
anything depicting hunting scenes such as fox hunting
Beauty products, soaps, etc made with animal ingredients including fat, placenta, musk. Milk, honey and beeswax are the only ones allowed.
Food products including pet treats containing meat
Horns
Skeletons
Fish, octopi and other sea creatures (they are animals!). Shells are fine as long as they are not harvested by killing the animals who live in them (many shells are found washed up on beaches)
Coral (it is an animal – not a stone, for more info read onwards) coral collected washed up dead, is allowed, but you must prove this is where it is from as in, state how you get your supplies
Any threatened or endangered plant species such as rare orchids and Venus Flytrap
Leather and suede clothing such as hats, coats, trousers, dresses, shorts, bras, skirts, shirts, vests. Shoes, bags and belts are allowed (read on for more info)
Please no pornography or sex toys or fetish clothing, save that for another group.
Please read on:
Important: No "favourites" would be items with real fur pelts, specimens, skeletons of animals or taxidermied items. None of your treasuries can have these items. No animals or skeletons that are "byproducts of the food industry". Any food industry I support will not have the horror of animals dropping dead from severe neglect as a "by product". In this group at least we know we will not run into it.
Wool is fine - it's a haircut. just in case anyone did not know that. Wool includes alpaca, Mohair, cashmere, etc, where the fur is collected/shorn (trimmed) and gently plucked from moults.
***please ensure all new cashmere comes from ethical sources where the rabbits have a good life and are gently plucked instead of tied down and ravaged for their fur***
Coral: It's an animal, and a protected species in many countries, and coral reefs all over the world are in danger.
Feathers: please consider where your feathers come from, many birds are killed for their decorative feathers
Silk: please use cruelty free silk where the worms are not boiled
Leather: A tough one to decide on. I am on the fence about it, because who can guarantee it came from a free range cow. I don’t wear leather clothing for ethical reasons, and I don't want this to be a horror show for vegans.
Musk is cruelly extracted.
Ethical makers of beauty products, please join, I know there are plenty of people like me who want your products. Does anyone make green and cruelty free cleaning products? Welcome here!
If you make baked goods or sauces and use eggs, they must be free range. Gluten free baked goods welcome too.

No one in the world needs a mink coat but a mink. ~Murray Banks
I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her. ~Ellen DeGeneres
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. ~Mahatma Gandhi

About this team

Suppliers, artisans, craftspeople, treasury makers as well as those who shop on Etsy; we are people who respect animals and treat them as sentient beings who deserve a good life. Team Animal Ethical is an Etsy team of people who share similar ideas on how animals should be treated in this world, not believing they were put on this earth for us to use as we wish. We are against the breeding and killing of animals for fur pelts, as well as harvesting, use and sale of real fur (except for being cut or gathered as in moulted peacock feathers and alpaca, sheep, etc wool which is a haircut), rapacious taxidermy and the like. Endangered and threatened species materials such as coral and those that are plant species such as rare orchids included in what we will not use. Materials if you are a supplier, should be sourced ethically. Also we are against animal testing and believe in cruelty free products for cosmetic use and the like. This is not about what we eat - though I would prefer people were ethical in this as well - this is about what we sell and what we buy on Etsy. Great minds think alike!
