Sneakers made from used coffee

While few countries dominate coffee production, it’s consumed in vast amounts almost everywhere on the planet: around 2 billion cups are drunk every day.

All that coffee produces a lot of waste. Coffee grounds often end up in landfill or being washed into sinks and drains, contributing to the food waste problem.

Now two entrepreneurs in Helsinki have started making sneakers from used coffee grounds.
