Leather Brand Bellroy to Speak at Hong Kong Sustainability Conference

Sarah Nichols of Bellory, the Australian-based leather wallet and accessories brand has confirmed that she will be speaking at the Sustainability in the Leather Supply Chain Conference, taking place on 14th March 2019.

 

Bellroy will be joining the Sustainability in the Leather Supply Chain conference in 2019 to talk about how Bellroy values leather as a core material in its products and the work it does with its suppliers and customers to benefit people, animals and the environment. 

This established Australian brand has worked hard to acknowledge and reduce the environmental impact of their products; Bellroy believes that the best way to do this is to work with the industry to improve environmental practices at every stage of the supply chain and to design products that are used and loved for a long time.
