In addition to being inhumane, the skin is also harmful to the environment due to the chemicals used. Speaking about the living conditions of a city polluted by a nearby tannery, a lawyer from the China Pollution Victims Legal Assistance Center said, “A few years ago, villagers could swim in the river. Now they get blisters on their hands and feet from touching the water. When you stand next to a river, you smell rotting flesh because the tannery dumps its animal skin and meat waste into the river.”
What material does Birkenstock use?
For its vegan sandals, the brand uses a material developed by Birko-Flor. It is a high-quality synthetic material consisting of two parts. The upper is made from leather-look PVC and can be dyed in multiple colors, while the inside is lined with soft, breathable vegan fleece. The insole is made from a mixture of cork and latex, while the outsole is made from EVA, an abrasion resistant material.
