Why Eco Fashion Matters: Toxic Tanneries to Get You Those Supercheap Shoes, Bags and Belts (Totally NOT Worth It!)

Posted Oct 19 2012 1:01pm

This is where our cheap leather comes from. Is it worth it to pay $5 less for a pair of shoes and contribute to this? I don’t think so. Watch and learn!

And then consider future leather purchases from ethical companies, like Coclico , Cri de Coeur , Patagonia and Naya . They are out there!) Better yet, repair your existing shoes (reheeling and resoling can extend the life of your fave shoes by years), buy second-hand shoes, and raid your friends’ closets (or maybe it’s more polite to hold a shoe-swap) – we all have shoes we don’t really wear, right?

Every little bit really does help.
