One by one, we can make a difference
There are not small actions, each single step is important in a long way.
I'm Magaly, the Founder behind Be You U Be handbags brand. The first time I rescued an animal I had eight years old and I was in third grade. I grew up hearing about the hole in the ozone layer and global warming. My social and environmental awareness grew early in my childhood. A long time passed and after developed a career as a Certified Public Accountant, I felt that I had more to do.
Day by day I see how our modern lifestyles have a serious impact on our planet. The fashion industry accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions and remains as the second largest industrial polluter, second only to oil. Only Americans throw away about 70 lbs. of clothing and accessories per person every year. Every year, the global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals. Most of the leather in the U.S. and Europe comes from countries that either have no animal welfare laws or have laws that go largely or completely unenforced. The production of leather hurts animals, the environment, and the workers who manufacture it. The only ones who benefit are people who profit from the misery and suffering of others. Confined to wire cages in which they can barely move, these animals are skinned sometimes while still alive and hacked apart, piece by piece, until they bleed to death.
We need to take action. A different way to make business and profit is possible. For that reason and full of compassion about nature and all kind of life, I founded a handbags brand with a social and environmental mission. I created a sustainable handbags which is an alternative for our actual fast fashion products. We want to demonstrate that a new different way to make business is possible.
Be You, connect with your inner beauty and make a difference.
