Raw Materials - How to spare hides from landfill

One4Leather writes on LinkedIn that it’s estimated that 40% of the 331 million cattle hides (over 3.8 billion kg) processed yearly are not used and go to landfill. That’s equivalent to 6,650 (fully laden) Airbus A380s. If the automotive industry increased the use of leather by just 10%, it would save 3.5 million hides from landfill and save over 64 million kg of CO₂e.
