Vegan Leather

Yes it is finally here.  Not to despair though.  We all had plenty of cars in our lives that had Vegan Leather seats.

Planet Earth loves vegan leather, too. Turning skin into leather takes loads of energy and a toxic brew of chemicals—including mineral salts, coal-tar derivatives, formaldehyde, oils, dyes, and finishes, some of them cyanide-based. Tannery waste contains water-fouling salt, lime sludge, sulfides, acids, and other pollutants.

 

And turning crude oil into "Vegan Leather" doesn't? :unsure:

But, the animals that created the crude were already dead. It's all a matter of perspective and priorities.:lol::D<_<:P

"...More than a billion cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and even dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their skins every year...."

 

Not totally true...they're slaughtered primarily for the meat to be eaten by non-vegans...the skins are just a bonus.;)

Besides without this process, this song would have to have the last lines removed.:P
