Everywhere we look nowadays, we’re told to live more sustainable lives. High profile campaigners are driving forces behind sustainability movements continuously putting pressure on governments and businesses to drive change and introduce regulations to prevent the planet being exploited for its resources.
But what does it really mean to live a sustainable life? Is it just about using less plastic, driving less and eating less meat?
The ELeather Experiment: Making a Real Environmental Difference
For us, Earth Day is an important date that celebrates a value that we live everyday, and have been from the start: sustainability. We’ve been making a product out of primarily waste material for almost 15 years now, with an incredibly environmentally efficient production process, that even has huge advantages to things like fuel consumption in-service for our customers. Our sustainable leather product is already silently helping critical industries like transportation, make real changes now.
But this year, we wanted to test and really see for ourselves, how much difference an individual person is able to make in going out of their way (literally) to minimise their impact on the planet, and compare this to our own contribution.
