Leather apparently accounts for approximately 10% of the animal?s total value, making it the most valuable part, pound for pound. So it's not a by-product here either.

And if you want shoes that will calm your conscience there are companies out there that do make "Vegetarian footwear"
Yes, following my previous post, I did a quick internet search and found that 'decent' non -leather shoes are now quite easily available https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/image...ies/thumbs.gif
They certainly weren't in the 80s when I went veggie, and tbh not something I've given enough thought to since.
My next and subsequent footwear purchases will bear this in mind.







(don't mention the leather seats in the 156 https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/images/smilies/eek.gif https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/image...mbarrassed.gif )
What convinced you to become a veggie?
