Crocodile skin products

In their excitement, inquiring customers do forget that crocodile leather is skin from crocodiles, which are living things. It is the same kind of commoditization as when a politician discusses the poor only in statistical terms.

The vast quantity of leather I work with desensitizes myself sometimes, and I can forget that leather comes from what used to be alive and breathing. Despite the slip ups, I never forget to remind myself of the harsh reality of the relationship man has with animals and the environment at large.

Before my point gets lost, I advocate treating the resources one handles with respect, and not for granted. Kind of like in the Avatar movie way, where the indigenous population give thanks by way of a prayer whenever they kill an animal.

If one is considering crocodile or alligator skin products, please don’t. Purchase cow/buffalo leather belts embossed with crocodile patterns instead. This is because one can be certain that cow/buffalo hide are a by-product of the meat industry, but we can’t be sure that the same is for crocodiles and alligators.

Let us be mindful and head towards a general reduction of wasteful and frivolous consumption of animal products.
