How do you recycle leather household items?

Did You Know?Leather bag and belt
Leather is one of the many materials in it’s infancy of recycling. Manufacturers are making flooring and other products from recycled leather, but currently there are few (if any) recycling centers accepting household leather products. Check with your local waste management company to get the latest information or create an interesting way to ‘upcycle’ your own leather and reuse it for another purpose…in other words, Think Outside The Bin!

Another idea for rubber or leather shoes can be found on our previous post for Soles4Souls, a great cause and option for paying it forward and helping the environment.
