Subject: should I sell my car with leather seats?
Date: June 21, 2010 at 2:16 pm PST

I am in the process of transitioning to veganism (I just went through my kitchen and tomorrow is my clothing and cosmetics day) and have been thinking for the past few weeks about my car. It has leather seats. We bought it used, but the leather is making me feel like I am being hypocritical every single time I get in the car, besides the fact that I have to acknowledge and mourn for the wonderful creatures that died for my car seats, as well. However, I am not sure if we could sell the car right now - we probably owe too much on it to be able to pay it off by selling at this point. I'm not sure what to do, although we are looking into making the selling happen and getting a car that is both more eco-friendly as well as not having the glaring issue of leather seats, if we can't, I just don't know how to deal with it, especially once I get involved in the vegan community and have possible new friends that may drive in my car, but even just seeing it, they will know it has leather...
anyone have any advice??
