What's wrong with this picture?

I came across this image while searching around during my previous post. It kinda jumped out at me as being, well, a little ridiculous.

Ummm... all leather is recycled. I know the company using this image are trying to be 'environmentally friendly' but come on. Someone used that skin for their whole life. They sheltered under it. It kept them warm, it felt the cold. It protected them from the elements and from diseases and infections. Someone needed that skin. Someone's life depended on that skin until we killed them, tore it off them, processed it chemically for days and days to prevent decay and made it into something else for us to use secondhand. Something entirely less vital.

Sooooo yeah. All leather is recycled.
