Kat Moss Mendenhall
A Texas vegan activist, Kat Mendenhall, Purveyor of Handmade Vegan Goods, is on a mission to disrupt the fashion industry by offering a line of cruelty-free cowboy boots and other non-leather accessories. A passionate boot maven she decided to ditch animal leather when she learned cows are raised solely for their skins, which are preserved in toxic chemicals resulting in deadly illnesses on young workers along with poisoning the environment. Kat believes animals should not suffer for fashion and creates high-end beautiful products that replace the use of animals without sacrificing quality.
She is a master vegan lifestyle coach and educator certified by Main Street Vegan Academy, a culinary nutrition expert certified by The Academy of Culinary Nutrition, certified in plant-based nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation/eCornell University, and a Food For Life Instructor certified by Physicians Committee.
