NEWS: Worn Again

Just wanted to flag up a really great recycled product. They are limited edition trainers but we reckon they will be a more long-term thing once word gets out. What a good idea!

Basically the good people over at Anti-Apathy, who are based at one of our favourite, creative, pay-as-you-go, business spaces, The Hub, have worked with Terra Plana to produce the Worn Again series of trainers. These funky looking trainers are made from recycled materials like old prison blankets, discarded suits and so on.

We can so see these trainers catching someone famous gets and wears a pair, gets snapped in them and then that will be that! They will be in Marks & Spencers before you know it.

Thanks to Make for the link. (via Treehugger and Boing Boing)

I bought a pair and they are very comfortable and the people are very nice. I might also point out that the original reference was from Treehugger, picked up by Make and then boingboing.
