Rethink the GOOD choice


The definition of eco-friendly is that what is not harmful to the earth. Many products use this term for their selective process; some for a marketing tool for sales. Is leather eco-friendly? is other materials eco-friendly?

The questions that need to be asked are whether or not the products we are selecting are really friendly in the process, not the outcome. This is a question Kate Sheppard began asking. In her 2011 article Is Fake Leather Really More Eco-Friendly Than Real, she began to learn about the process of the items she deemed more environmentally sound.

Check out this article, and start asking yourself: What is really eco-friendly, and how do we change the process for the better?
