Every second person you meet, you find out more and more about veganism. It is everywhere nowadays. It is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. This evolution has reduced the multifaceted environmental crisis. And to keep it evolving, we Orenda India has created incredible wallets made from Cork.
The production of animal leather is linked to some serious sustainability issues. These days animal skin is turned into finished leather by doing chrome tanning. According to Peta, ” A chrome-tanning facility wastes nearly 15,000 gallons of water and produces up to 2,200 pounds of “solid waste” (e.g., hair, flesh, and trimmings) for every ton of hides that it processes. Leather tanning also generates 800,000 tons of chrome shavings annually, and much of this chromium waste ends up in landfills.”
Noting all the points, we establish our designs and independency with ethical values at our core.
5 Reasons to Choose Cork Vegan Wallet
1. Cork Is Sustainable
Beatles, McCartney once said, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian.”
Cork is procured by shaving the upper layer bark of Cork Oak Trees. No tree is cut down during the process. It takes between nine and twelve years for the bark to grow back thick enough to be harvested again. The tree continues to live and grow. It is biodegradable and can vanish without leaving a trace on our planet. Isn’t it an incredible resource by our mother earth.
As understood from the procuring process, we rest assured knowing that no waste is produced while extraction and manufacturing of cork products.
2. Feels Like A Leather
Unlike leather production, cork is chemical-free. Keeping sustainability in mind, cork still scores to give a feel of leather when touched. It is soft to touch, has smooth surface and luxury look due to its minimalism. It doesn’t crack or crumble which makes it very durable. Also, it is completely recyclable.
