Dive into the unmatched eco-credentials of Nopal cactus leather. This material outshines both traditional animal leather and PU variants in terms of sustainability. It stands as a robust and planet-friendly option for your timepiece, demanding less in terms of resources.
Cactus leather requires only 0.02m3 of water to produce 1m2 of material, significantly less than animal leather (32.95m3) and PU leather (2.93m3).
Cactus Leather's carbon footprint stands impressively low at 1.39 Carbon GHG per m2, in stark contrast to 27.30 for animal leather and 4.81 for PU leather.
Cactus leather also excels in energy consumption, using only 34.33 CED (MJ) per m2, compared to 335.84 for animal leather and 92.93 for PU leather.
A mere 14 acres of organic cactus plantation can absorb a staggering 8,100 tons of CO2 annually, while the farm's CO2 generation stands at just 15.30 tons yearly.
From requiring minimal water for cultivation to an eco-conscious transformation process, cactus leather is a front-runner in sustainable material production, outdoing both its animal and PU counterparts.
In waste emissions too, Cactus Leather excels, emitting only 1.80 KGCO2EQ per m2, versus 27.30 for animal leather and 5.85 for PU leather.
