Leather industry is globally growing in huge amount resulting in production of more waste generation. This paper reviews the sources from which the leather product is made and the operations process how it's being finalized into a specified product and to minimize the exploitation of natural resources to make a pollution free environment. In view point of construction, concrete is the main elemental material. Concrete manufacturing involves consumption of ingredients like cement, aggregates, water and admixtures. Among all these aggregates are consider major part so preservation of natural resources is major concern. Production of cement even leads to environmental pollution. To preserve the natural resources as well as to make environment free of harmful pollution like contamination of drinking water, inhaling of harmful gases etc. alternative materials are need to be considered. This report reviews the use of leather waste materials in concrete for construction purpose as to reduce pollution and disposal problem resulting in less landfill pressures and reducing demand of extraction.
