Disney World to Feature a Vegan Handbag Company

The amusement park’s new sustainability-focused attraction will feature vegan bags by Pansy Maiden.

In celebration of Earth Day today, a small, vegan start-up company will be showcasing its eco-friendly products in Vision House, an experimental new attraction at Walt Disney World’s Epcot center focusing on sustainable innovations. Pansy Maiden, a one-person operation based in Medford, MA, produces cruelty-free handbags using environmentally sound materials. Founder Laura Collins says vegan ethics are central to her company’s vision. “I very much believe that all things connect—the way we treat animals, the way we treat our Earth, the way we treat each other,” says Collins. “If we are considerate and make efforts to treat all three with the utmost respect, our world will be a healthier and all-around better place to live.”
