Currently, there is rampant exploitation of our land, animals, and people, taking place on a global scale. The true cost of fast-food and fast-fashion are expended in unseen externalities to our local communities and our environment.
The Savory Institute has released 4 documentary episodes centered around meat, dairy, wool and leather, to help draw attention to the incredibly powerful results that a global network of agricultural producers practicing Holistic Management brings to the table for a worldwide paradigm shift. These stories, captured in collaboration with bold food and fashion brands, are examples of success and the desired enduring change that is igniting a Consumer Revolution.
In this episode, The Story of Leather, host Chris Kerston, shares the stories of Holistic Management practitioners, researchers, leather tanneries, and business partners in California, U.S.A., with Spencer Smith from our Savory Network Hub, The Jefferson Center for Holistic Management, and in New York, U.S.A with Frank Zambrelli, fashion designer and founder of 1Atelier, then with Dr Becky Chaplin-Kramer of Stanford University working with Kering Group, and in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. with Skip Horween of Horween Leather Tannery. These partners are going far beyond sustainability to bring about an era of regenerative agriculture through properly managed grazing that mimics nature.
