Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
My friend gave me a leather bag gift last Christmas. I still haven't decided what to do with it, to burn it or to give it to other friend who is not vegan. I once thought to re-sell it again and donate the money to animals rights organization, but don't you think it means that I support leather trading?
What would you do if you got a leather gift? Suggestion please!
If it were me, I'd have told my friend I already have one just like it and ask them if they had the receipt where I could exchange it for something else. Failing that, I'd either donate it to a homeless shelter or sell it and donate the money.
i wouldnt accept the gift. my friends/family would understand that i cant accept such gifts. if i would take the gift, theres a possibility that they gift me something like that again.. i guess.
