India Bans Leather Shoes

Canvas shoes will replace leather shoes as the new required footwear for Indian schoolchildren.

This week, India's Central Board of School Education and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) approved a proposal by Maneka Gandhi to replace leather shoes with cruelty-free canvas alternatives as the required footwear in Indian schools. The proposal states that black leather shoes were introduced as part of a required school uniform during Britain's colonial rule of India, and that by replacing them with canvas shoes, the country can choose its own, more eco-friendly, option. Representatives of CISCE say that the move will benefit schoolchildren and their families, as leather shoes require routine cleaning, polishing, and maintenance while canvas shoes are more comfortable and durable.
