One third of all food produced in the world for human consumption never reached the consumer’s table.

Global food waste generates 4.4 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions annually. That's about 8% of total GHG emissions in the world, which is almost as much as the emissions from all the cars in the world.

If food wastage were a country, it would be the third largest emitting country in the world, after China and the United States.

From Unwanted Fruits to Your Wardrobe Essentials

By upcycling discarded fruits from grocery stores and juice factories, each bag at Allégorie helps reduce food waste.

So yes, when we say our bags are made from apples, it's not some greenwashing nonsense. For example, each of our Gala Backpacks upcycles about 550 apples, with bio content constituting approximately 80% of the bag.

Beyond Recycled Fruits

We go the extra mile to ensure that each of our bags is truly eco-friendly and cruelty-free.

In addition to upcycled food waste, we utilize various plant-based and recycled materials, including non-edible crops and post-consumer recycled plastics, to minimize the impact on the environment and animals.

Unlike most vegan leathers, our materials are 100% PVC free. Discover here how traditional "vegan leather" may not be as good as it sounds.

Our production partners share our vision and follow strict guidelines to reduce their impact on the environment, including zero emissions of hazardous chemicals, utilizing green energy, and netting zero on water usage.

There Are More Ways to Help

To make real change in our food system, much more needs to be done.

During the peak of COVID-19 in 2020, we partnered with FoodTank, a global non-profit community pushing for food system change, to support its local partners across all 50 states working on COVID-19 relief. In the spring of 2021, our team volunteered with New York Cares to rescue leftover food from local restaurants and deliver it to homeless shelters.
