These are happy days for boxers who have a sensitive side.
Boxing, also known as pugilism, is the ‘sport’ of fighting with the fists. The object of the competition is to deliver painful blows to one’s opponent.
Nevertheless, some boxers may have a sensitive side ; they may be upset by wearing boxing gloves which have been cruelly made from the hides of animals.
Luckily, a Mexico based company called ‘Desserto’ is now producing vegan leather from cactus plants.
They have joined with ‘Sanabul’, a manufacturer of boxing apparel, to produce cruelty free boxing gloves.
These should appeal to boxers who are eco-conscious.
Desserto, making cactus leather, is joining other vegan leather companies.
PINATEX is a type of vegan leather made from the leaves of the pineapple plant. It originates in the Philippines .
SAMARA is a company producing vegan leather from apple peels.
In British Columbia, cork leather is being manufactured from the leaves of cork oak trees, which grow mainly in Portugal.
Western Australia and Indonesia have begun producing mushroom leather, made from the roots of mushrooms.
While vegan leather may satisfy some of the needs of environmentalists and animal activists, the production of these textiles actually involves the use of harmful chemicals, which can negatively impact the earth.
Vegan leathers are much less durable than animal leathers. They tear and scratch easily, and need to be frequently replaced. Since the cost of these items is comparable to their animal leather counterparts, they are much less economical in the long run.
Environmentalism, and the Animal Liberation Movement are just two components of ‘The Great Reset’, and globalism. Humanity is being increasingly encouraged to be concerned with ‘protecting the environment and animals’, while slowly being conditioned to accept global socialism, the restriction of personal freedoms, and the deaths of millions of pre-born babies.
May the Lord continue to give us guidance, courage, and wisdom in these perilous times. Our hurting world needs to hear the good news of salvation more than ever before.
