Recycled leather typically has a lower impact on climate change compared to traditional, full-grain natural leather. This is why the production of recycled leather involves reusing existing materials, which reduces the need for new raw materials and the associated emissions from their extraction and processing. In contrast, the production of full-grain natural leather involves the use of new leather hides or skins, which require significant amounts of energy, water, and chemicals during the tanning process. These emissions contribute to climate change [...]
