PINEAP­PLE POWER

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - ECO TRENDS -

Yes, we love leather – but there’s no deny­ing that, as in­dus­tries go, it’s hardly en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly (and that’s even be­fore you con­sider the fi­nal prod­uct). En­ter Piña­tex, a non­wo­ven tex­tile made from the fi­bres in the dis­carded leaves of pineap­ple plants. In terms of sus­tain­abil­ity, it’s a dou­ble-header: it uses up ex­tra­ne­ous by-prod­ucts of pineap­ple farm­ing and cre­ates a prod­uct that can be en­joyed by leather-lovers with­out guilt.
