Leather is Better!

I’m sorry folks but as long as we kill cows for food we’ll have their skins for leather. To waste this product is not really very environmentally friendly. I would rather have that natural leather on my body or feet than the petroleum needed to make that faux leather product! And rest assured other than outgrowing the item, leather will last for decades. Case in point I sold a leather jacket last year that was over 35 years old for $15 at the Westgate Yard sale!

“If you can buy a pair of boots that last twice as long as a synthetic alternative, you’ll end up with half the environmental impact in the long run…”
