Planting sustainability in the core
Compared with prevailing chromium–tanned leather, vegetable-tanned leather drastically enhances environmental and human wellbeing
It seems that everywhere we look there’s news reminding us of climate change and the increasing threats to our planet. Is it any wonder that in order to reduce our carbon footprint we need to look down at what’s on our feet? While sustainability is growing in importance to consumers, brands must still achieve the high quality standards they are known for. When sustainability is thrown into the material mix, can brands still satisfy all the demands being made in the marketplace?
With the future of our planet in the hands of the humans who inhabit it, we all must do our part to make a change. AP Terra is a new line of materials made from recycled Ariaprene products. Terra is made in-house from up to 100% recycled Ariaprene material, ensuring our unused product is being repurposed correctly. By repurposing what would normally be considered waste, Terra reduces negative environmental impact and helps reduce our carbon footprint.
