With all the plastic and chemic used in manufacturing of dog products, allergies in dogs are on the rise. That is why Pintu made it its mission to only create products that eliminate any harmful materials. Nature offers us such a large variety of amazing materials which were created by mother earth to be discovered and used.
PintuCattle skin leather which 100% vegetable tanned using herbal tans and has International Gold Rated Certificate. Pintu work exclusively with naturally tanned leather. They believe that as long as the meat consumption is taking place, leather will always exist and be a by-product. Therefore not making it environmentally unfriendly. Its is vital though to know wherefrom the cows come from and how they are taken care of. Secondly, the production of vegan or synthetic leather usually requires a lot of water for production and at the same time a lot of chemicals to produce, which then pollutes the water. Lastly, most often the leather substitutes have a large percentage of plastic components included and only a minimal of natural fibres. Resulting for them to have a rather short life-span, but also making them most often not fully biodegradable. This is why Pintu decided to work with vegetable tanned leather as it is the best approach to respect the environment.
When we think about mindful consumption, cost per use is a way of evaluating whether or not your purchase is sustainable or not. Asking questions like “will I use/wear this piece more than 30 times?” “Will I fix it when it breaks?” “When I’ve finished using it, will I extent the lifespan of the item by giving it to someone I know/charity?” All of these actions will decrease the overall carbon footprint of your purchase.
How do you work out the cost per use? Divide the price of the product by 30! We use 30 as this is the average amount of uses items are thought to have.
For every sent postage box, one tree is donated and planted in our name to compensate the CO2 emission of the shipment. Reuse & Repurpose. Pintu hope you can find ways to reuse & repurpose all the elements of our packaging to give it new life.
