Actress Sonam Kapoor and her producer-sister Rhea Kapoor s fashion label -- Rheson has bagged the Compassionate Business Award from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India for a line of bags made exclusively of vegan materials.
Shoppers demand for cruelty-free fashion is on the rise -- and thanks to compassionate companies like Rheson it s easier than ever to get a killer look without killing animals says Benazir Suraiya PETA s fashion expert and associate manager of celebrity and media projects.
This is not the first time that Sonam who was crowned PETA s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2016 has stood for animals.
In 2015 she wrote a letter to the Union Minister of Environment Forest and Climate Change urging him not to revoke the ban on classroom dissection for university life-science and zoology students.
In March 2010 she sent a letter on behalf of PETA to then-Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil urging him to ban glass-coated manja across the state after Mumbai police banned it within the city. And in 2011 she donated kind kites to children to help prevent injuries from manja.
