(IN) Vegetarian Shoe Company Targets Jains
- India probably has the largest population of vegetarians in the world
and there’s been some good news for them this week; Vegetarians live
longer than meat-eaters, according to a study published Monday.
The health benefits of other aspects of a strict vegetarian lifestyle,
such as leather-free shoes, are yet to be tested however.
But an enterprising shoe designer is hoping that India’s mostly
vegetarian diet will translate into a demand for animal-free footwear.
“If one believes in following a vegetarian diet, why not follow it in
what you wear?” said Ritu (who goes by only one name) one of the two
promoters behind Mumbai-based Senso Vegetarian Shoes.
