'Clean Meat' is the name of a new book from Paul Shapiro that tells the story of how cruelty-free meat can be created and commercialized for solutions that are safer and more sustainable—a special edition clean leather-bound book is also up for auction on eBay, featuring genuine leather than was grown in about a week. The clean leather material was created by Geltor, an innovative company that is working to create a sustainable gelatine substitute that may ultimately replace animal-derived gelatine in not just food, but many pharmaceutical and personal care items as well.

Proceeds from the auction of the special-edition book will be put towards Good Food Institute, an organization that is devoted to promoting plant-based, animal-free product alternatives.

As many conscious clothing brands and designer fashion houses are now eschewing animal products in favor of more sustainable alternatives, a range of creative, cruelty-free substitutes are emerging.
