💚💚This is why we make better aprons💚💚 #apronawareness
The purchases you make today have an impact on tomorrow. Brickwalls and Barricades offers you sustainable alternatives for the standard textile aprons. Textiles, such as cotton (of which most aprons are made of), have a negative impact on our planet. To cultivate one cotton apron, for example, requires pesticides and about 10,000 to 20,000 liters of water. We can think of much better applications for all of that precious water.
Leather tanning is one of the oldest and sustainable crafts in our world today. Our hides are a by-product of our food sources and tanned leather is perhaps the best use of a waste product in the history of the world. Leather has provided man with clothing, shelter and protection since time immemorial, and today we use this wonderful organic material for aprons. Think about how many liters of water and toxic detergent are needed to wash all those aprons for all gastronomy in the world, every single day. The only maintenance our leather aprons need is a simple wipe-off and occasional waxing. Sounds good right? So stop washing, start waxing!
We are aware though of the impact of leather production on our world. We therefore strive to ensure that with the purchasing of our tanned skins, our European suppliers fully comply with all environmental regulations (often exceeding such standards), for the least possible impact on air, water and land. Modern tanning is a process that is constantly evolving and producing continuous innovations. Organic methods such as vegetable tanning or various forms of fully chromium-free tanning promote an even higher level of environmental awareness by this industry. Brickwalls and Barricades has leather product offerings in all of these categories, and we plan to continue expanding our range of environmentally conscious products in the future.
And what did you do to save the world today?
