Making sustainable fashion common practice Auralís Gucci launches 'zero-deforestation' handbag mongabay.com March 07, 2013 Green Gucci handbags. Courtesy of Gucci Gucci has rolled out a collection of 'zero-deforestation' handbags. Each handbag comes with a "passport" that provides the history of the product's supply chain going back to the ranch that produced the leather. The line emerged out of concerns that leather in the fashion industry is contributing to deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, where roughly two-thirds of forest destruction is for cattle production. "This is a breakthrough moment for sustainable style," says Livia Firth, the fashion designer who launched the Green Carpet Challenge, an initiative that pushes the fashion industry to design more eco-friendly products. The handbag is Gucci's first product under the initiative. "Today more than ever before customers want to be associated with brands that are thoughtful and responsible," said Frida Giannini, Gucci's Creative Director, in a statement.
