Company Creates World’s First 100% Plant-Based Leather

This company has created the world’s first 100% natural plant-based leather alternative.

Allbirds says it's created the world's first 100% natural plant-based leather alternative in its new shoes, 'Plant Leather.' The sustainable, eco-friendly clothing company has also made shoes from eucalyptus trees, shoe soles from sugarcane, and shoelaces from recycled plastic bottles.

The company says Plant Leather makes up to 40x less carbon impact than real leather and 17x less than faux leather made from plastic.
