Step into the future of sustainability with Apple's latest announcement: it's phasing out leather from iPhone cases and watches! As part of its green goals, the tech giant will be using innovative alternatives like FineWoven, a textile made of 68% recycled post-consumer content with a soft, suede-like feel. "We aim to make products customers love and protect the planet at the same time," says Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president for the environment. Did you know that the environmental cost of leather is massive too, from cattle farms contributing to climate crisis to tanning process polluting water sources? Apple is at the forefront of change, contributing to a market, the animal-free leather alternative, which is predicted to grow to $74.5 billion by 2030. One small step for Apple, one huge leap for Mother Earth!
