Ever since debuting their first automobile in 2008, Tesla has become a leader in making eco-friendly cars. Now a household name, Tesla has sold upwards of 186,000 electric cars as of December 2016, and the figure keeps on growing as people are looking for ways to minimize their impact on the environment.
And now Tesla has once again proved they are leaders in the technology field by ditching leather seats in favor of 100 percent vegan leather seats, allowing for an even opportunity to minimize one’s carbon footprint when purchasing a car. When it comes to the leather industry, the connection between its environmental impact usually isn’t made. The leather industry is among the major causes of deforestation (as it is closely tied to the meat industry), water pollution, and other threats to the environment. Tesla’s move to vegan leather seats is a huge win for animals, as well as our planet.
