The Merrell Women's Moab 3 GORE-TEX - Sedona/Sage has the following sustainability attributes...
Leather production has a significant impact on the planet, using excessive amounts of water and polluting it with harmful chemicals. Certain organisations and producers are making efforts to reduce the environmental impact of leather production on the planet, such as non-profits like the Leather Working Group, who have been auditing the leather manufacturing process from tanneries to retailers since 2005, and Perwanger, a quality leather producer prioritizing the environment
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
