Busting the myth that faux leather is better for the planet than real leather is important to understand. While synthetic materials may appear to be a more environmentally friendly option, they are actually made from non-renewable resources and petrochemicals. This manufacturing process not only contributes to the depletion of finite resources but also creates harmful emissions. On the other hand, real leather is made from a natural and renewable resource, hides, that are a by-product of the food industry. The process of producing and tanning leather has also improved in recent years, reducing the environmental impact of production. Additionally, real leather has a longer lifespan and ages gracefully,reducing the need for frequent replacements. The end of life for real leather can also be more sustainable, with hides being biodegradable and often recyclable. The message is clear, real leather is not only a durable and long-lasting material but can also be a more environmentally friendly choice when compared to synthetic materials.
