Well, the votes have been cast in the Unleashed office and the winners of the Keep shoes have been decided! Find out who it was and how to enter our new comp!

To be declared the winner of this comp, you had to post a comment telling everyone what you would keep doing in 2013 to help animals. The responses we got were super creative and definitely got me thinking about what more I could be doing in the year ahead. It certainly wasn't easy to pick two winners ... but eventually the decision was made.

So congratulations (and new shoes!) go to:

Roobz who will be spreading the message of kindness:

Roobz' entry

And Elefriend101 who probably gets more done in one morning then I do in an entire week!

Ellie's entry

Thanks to all who entered and especially to the good peeps at Keep. Check 'em out on Facebook if you're ever after good-looking animal-friendly shoes!

If you didn't win this time around, don't stress, because we have a new comp starting already. Now I don't like to make promises I can't keep ... but I'm pretty confident that the prize up for grabs WILL actually make you the coolest kid at school/uni/TAFE/juvenile detention. Find out what it is!

There comes a time in everyone's life when they need a pair of really, unbelievably good shoes. For you - that time is now. We're giving away the best shoes I think I've seen this year. Take a look for yourself then find out how you can win a pair.


Hit the pictures to see the new 2012 collections you can choose from if (when!) you win.

Introducing Keep - the very generous people behind these cool animal-friendly shoes. Launched in 2006 and based in LA, according to them, "Keep is a shoe company, an amalgam of interests, a way of being, a force, a language, a family and many other things." And most importantly, everything they make is completely cruelty-free (and looks unreal).

I could go on for ages about Keep, but I'll limit myself to just these 3 points:
1. They've done a shoe collab with Bon Iver to support an animal sanctuary. That's awesome on many different levels.
2. Their Facebook page is actually interesting, so make sure you go check it out.
3. They're giving away two pairs of sneakers to Unleashed members - one for guys, one for girls. (Adam and Eve would have totally loved this comp.)

To win...

...all you have to do is tell me what you'll be doing in 2013 to keep helping animals. It might be to attend a rally against live exports; to lend that animal rights book you have to one of your friends; or to make that next step in ditching dairy or eggs from your meals. There's a 1000 ways you can help animals in 2013 - you just have to choose one!

Fine print: your entry must be 30 words or less; there'll be one guy and one girl winner; you can only enter once; in case you win and were thinking of getting me a Xmas pressie, I like the Shaheens.

This promotion ends December 23rd which isn't far away - so get your entries in NOW! Good luck!

Oh, and here's something to watch while you're thinking.

There was a MASSIVE response to the vegan sneaker giveaway we ran through June, with some excellent entries. Unfortunately we can't give everyone a pair of shoes, but thanks to the lovely peeps at vegansneaker.com, there were two pairs to give away.


Supporters were asked to submit their fave animal/activism quote, and the best ones would win the shoes AND have their entry turned into a cover for the Unleashed fb page. So, without further adieu, here are the winning quotes and the special edition covers! Instructions on how to make them your own fb covers are below the images


Quote submitted by Unjay


Quote submitted by Natty76

Download instructions:

1. Right click on the image above and save it to your computer (remember where you save it!)
2. Go to your Facebook profile, hover your mouse over your cover image and click "Change Cover".
3. Select "Upload photo..." and choose the image that you just saved (you shouldn't need to resize if you've copied from us).
4. Finally, tag your friends so they can see that you're 'kicking ass' on your Facebook profile!
5. Oh yeah, one last thing. Drop www.unleashed.org.au into the image description so your friends know where to find heaps more info!

(p.s. You can also pin the image to a board if you're on pinterest. But you don't need instructions on how to do that!)

Thanks again to vegansneaker.com for the prizes. Be sure to check 'em out if you're in the market for some cruelty-free sneakers ;)

Walk with the greats with FREE SHOES!

Walk with the greats with FREE SHOES!

Tags: shoes, competition, giveaway, vegan, sneakers, cruelty-free, so easy to win, free, yes please

Being kind to animals isn't a new invention. It's not like ipads or robots. When you speak up for animals, you're walking in the shoes of many amazing and inspiring people. Now, we've teamed up with VeganSneaker.com to give you a chance to step out in cruelty-free style like some of the greats, with these sweet Etiko kicks.

We've got two pairs of sneakers to give away to two lucky Unleashed members!

It may seem obvious, but I'll say it anyway, VeganSneaker.com specialise in selling vegan sneakers from Aussie company Etiko. Etiko's slogan is "Wear No Evil". This means no kids sweating in factories, no ripped off workers without toilet breaks, and no animal products in their shoes!

Some of the greatest minds the world has ever seen have stood up for animals. Albert Einstein for starters. When the German genius wasn't blowing minds with his theory of rela-la-tivi-li-ty (I can't even pronounce it) he was telling the world, "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet".

And what about Gandhi, who said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated". FYI, I bet Gandhi would have loved a pair of Etikos on his famous Salt March. Just sayin'.

There've been pollies, athletes and musos - all who have walked the walk when it comes to treating animals with respect. Jose Gonzalez, Missy Higgins and Jona Weinhofen just to name a few.

To get your hands on (and feet into) these vegan sneakers we want you to talk the talk. All you have to do is share your favourite quote about animals/activism in the comments. It can be inspiring, thoughtful, funny, anything! (If you don't know any quotes, then google is your friend.)

But wait! There's more! The two winners will also have their entries turned into hot new facebook covers, to help get the idea out there that everyone can treat animals with respect. So stop reading, and start writing! Entries into the comments by June 30th! Good luck!

But You Wear Leather Don't You?

But You Wear Leather Don't You?

No doubt I’m not alone when I say I like stylish clothes. And one thing I love about faux fashion is that it not only looks hot, it’s a great way to show others that you don’t need to be cruel to be cool (and in fact there’s nothing less attractive than someone draped in the skin of a dead animal!).

One of my fave wardrobe additions of late is my faux leather jacket from Casual Guy (pictured below). When I’m wearing this bad boy and speaking up for animals, I often have people say something like “But you wear leather, don’t you?” and I think BAM! 'time to save lives' and then I respond: “Thanks for asking! Actually no, I don’t wear animal skins. I was horrified when I found out cows that die for leather often have their tails broken and chilli rubbed in their eyes before they are killed. Oh this jacket, it’s fake leather. Have you ever worn fake leather before?”


Here are a few other discoveries I just had to add to my wardrobe:


These 100% non-leather shoes (above) are from Spendless


There's plenty of non-leather belts out there like this Hurley belt made of PVC


If you want something real bad, just keep looking. I wanted one of these jackets for ages, and I finally found a non-wool jacket at Dangerfield.

So how do you strut your hot stuff for the animals? Have you got an awesome tip for compassionate fashion? Leave a comment.
