The third edition of the ChangeNOW summit will take place at the Grand Palais in Paris from 30 January to 1 February 2020! The event will bring together players from the world of innovation, presenting positive-impact solutions in response to the major social and environmental challenges of this century. These solutions include initiatives by start-ups developing new environmentally-friendly materials. Here we focus on three of them.
Recyc Leather: a recycled leather made from off-cuts
Recyc Leather recycles calfskin off-cuts, previously destined for destruction, from a Chinese factory producing gardening gloves. The material obtained is a blend of 60% leather off-cuts, 30% latex and 10% synthetic materials, including pigments. Environmentally friendly and 100% traceable, this recycled leather has already attracted attention from many brands in the fashion, design and decoration industries.
