What Is So Great About Vegan Faux Leather?

Apart from everything.....

Firstly, faux leather is as we know, cruelty-free, but it is also better for the planet and oh so très chic to wear and keep clean.

But what is it? 

According to PETA, vegan leather is often made from polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order for any designer's whim. It can also be made from innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic and used to create products that put animal skins to shame.

Not only does vegan leather make you look good, but it also makes you feel good because it's cruelty-free. More than a billion cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and even dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their skins every year. The tails and horns of many of these animals are cut off without painkillers, and some are even skinned and cut apart while still conscious. By contrast, vegan leather offers a killer look without any killing.

Planet Earth loves sustainable vegan leather, too. Turning skin into leather takes loads of energy and a toxic brew of chemicals—including mineral salts, coal-tar derivatives, formaldehyde, oils, dyes, and finishes, some of them cyanide-based. Tannery waste contains water-fouling salt, lime sludge, sulfides, acids, and other pollutants.

Cazinc The Label is following other designers, like Stella McCartney, who is among those who feature only vegan leather in their collections.
