Traceability of leather goods from steak dinners

25 September 2014

In some seafood restaurants, you're able to pick out the fish you want on your plate, and in a similar vein to this origin of entrées is a new concept at a hotel in Brooklyn, New York, where diners can visit a pop-up store and buy leather handbags and goods made from the same animals that were just served to them for dinner.

At the Wythe Hotel's Reynard restaurant in Williamsburg, patrons can savour a grass-fed steak or burger and then go next door to Marlow Goods and pick up leather bags and accessories that originated from the same animal as their meal.

Opinion is somewhat divided, but it's done in the spirit of transparency and educating the public that it's becoming more necessary to use the entire animal in a sustainable way in order to reduce waste.
