So excited about my new shoes. It looks like leather but it is made of pineapple leaves fiber, 100% animal free.
I have been eating a vegan diet for the past seven years and I have gradually becoming more and more conscious of other areas in my life where I can improve. Becoming aware of the benefits of veganism not only to my own health but also to the poor animals who give their lives for our vainness and to all the destruction we are causing to our planet.
To my happiness, we are finally entering an era in which industries are exploring alternative ways to make products. This particular natural textile from my new pair of shoes is made from pineapple. It is a sustainable option because it comes from a by-product of the pineapple harvest. There is no necessity of additional use of land and water, fertilizers or pesticides to produce it, and it is 100% cruelty free.
Some manufacturers are making leather also from mushroom caps, which result is a soft suede.
Other ones are exploring the use of cork that can be transformed in cork leather after its harvest and passing through a chemical-free process. The final product is light, water, wear and tear resistant cork leather.
Leathers from pineapple, mushroom and cork can be used to make a large number of consumables, including shoe, hats and purses, jackets and many more.
I have already stopped supporting the traditional leader industry. When will you?
