Sustainable fashion trends 2020

 

As you might already know, coffee is one of the most consumed drinks all over the world. The number is stunning: around 2 billion cups are drunk each day, so it is a very big deal. However, the only problem is that coffee produces a lot of waste. In particular, the coffee grounds often end up being washed into sinks and drains. This contributes to the foods waste problem as it is estimated that around a third of all foods produced is thrown away.

To help solve the problem, Son Chu and Jesse Tran are making some of sustainably made sneakers that are stylish and affordable. They both are self-confessed sneaker obsessives who concern a lot about the environmental impact. The fashion business is a combination of fabric made from coffee grounds and recycled plastic waste. They aim to create a light and durable material to use for footwear. A pair of their sneakers weighs 460g, in which 300g is coffee. Each pair also uses the equivalent of six discarded plastic bottles. This can become global trends in sustainable fashion.

The future of sustainable fashion

 

Sneakers made of coffee grounds can become one of the sustainable fashion market trends because this innovation offers a really sweet smell. As you can see, well-worn sneakers smell bad. But coffee grounds can help eliminate odours, and according to Rens, the shoes are vegan, too. The fashion business has had customers in 57 countries. It is also broadening the market after a successful fundraising campaign. At the moment, all the coffee collection and shoe-making processes are handled in China, but the manufacturing will be soon moved to its founders’ home country of Vietnam.
