Apple's newly unveiled AirTag tracking devices can be placed in a bag or pocket on their own, or they can be attached to a range of new Apple-designed AirTag accessories.

The Polyurethane Loop, which Apple describes as lightweight and durable, is available in White, Deep Navy, Sunflower, and Electric Orange, and costs $29.

The Leather Key Ring features specially tanned European leather, and is available in Saddle Brown, PRODUCT(RED), and Baltic Blue for $35. Meanwhile, the Leather Loop comes in Saddle Brown and PRODUCT(RED) for $39.

The enclosure of each accessory fits securely around AirTag, while conveniently attaching to a user's belongings, offering a more personalized AirTag while making sure it's always with their important items.

I've read a couple comments saying that if they just included a hole in AirTags, people wouldn't need to buy these extra accessories.

What I don't think they realize is that if they just included a hole in AirTags, people wouldn't need to buy these extra accessories.

They went straight from the environment to announcing tchotchkes made out of leather (plus all the new spring colors of leather cases).

It doesn't matter how many trees you plant.

You can't take those toxins out of the tannery workers' lungs.

There's no safe way to tan leather. No way to do it without making toxins. No way to do it without harming the environment—just from the animal husbandry alone.

You can plant trees, but it's still a different thing. It's like drinking a milkshake and then eating a head of broccoli to make up for it.

AIRTAGS: You may lose your keys, but you will never lose your mind again.

Tim, you can now pay me for this slogan! 😃

I’m not finding anywhere on Apple website how thick or width of these tags are, does anybody know or where it lists this info? Thanks!

The alternative in many cases is using plastic… no two ways about it, just straight-up plastic. Then there's the matter of wasting all the cowhide that's being generated by producing beef, which could have been used in a wide variety of places if it was just turned into leather. I don't think this is a clearly one-sided issue, and thus I don't think it's fair to associate any and all leather with anti-environmentalism.

Just my two cents; I'm more than willing to hear more about the topic that I probably don't know.

I agree about tanning the leather, but the animal husbandry is not really an issue. The demand is driven by increase in beef consumption and there is a global glut of leather because of that. Less leather products won't mean less cows.
