Welcome to the Stories of Sustainability. This month we are focusing on Sustainability in Fashion, and featuring our second Sustainability Champion: Zimri Hinshaw, founder and CEO of Bucha Leather!
This story of sustainability offers Temple community members insight into real-life experience of student entrepreneurs implementing corporate social responsibility principles and building a triple bottom business from the ground up.
Bucha Leather provides true alternatives and solutions to the unsustainable leather industry. Through a zero waste product life cycle, the biodegradable material goes right back to the soil as a nutrient rather than taking up space in a landfill. Not to mention its only byproduct is delicious kombucha!
Bucha Leather provides sustainable leather alternatives, 100 percent biodegradable product that is animal-free, with zero plastic additives while having high strength and durability.
