What’s better for the Weather? Leather or Pleather?
So you’ve decided you love animals and to prove it you won’t eat be eating turkey, frozen yogurt or omelettes ever again… and you certainly cannot be rocking leather bags, coats and shoes either. And sure, these days there is a lot of not-totally-hippie-looking pleather options available. But did you know most pleather options are really icky for the environment? Click to educate yourself!!!
Pleather is generally made from PVC, which is responsible for huge amounts of toxic emisions or from Polyurethane, which emits carbon dioxide during production. Not that leather is off the hook- its production responsible for cow-generated methane (cow farts are way bad for the envirornment) and polluting the enviroment with leather dye. What’s mother-earth loving girl to do? Please, we certainly aren’t recommending a hemp only wardrobe. But there are a lot of great green brands you should check out, for example, Keep. The best choice? Vintage! Recycle cans, recycle clothes!
