An entirely new category of shoes inspired by natural materials, and an ongoing mantra to create better things in a better way.
A native of New Zealand, Tim Brown was always well versed in the magical qualities of merino wool. Inherently curious, he began asking himself why such a remarkable, sustainable resource was virtually absent in the footwear industry. And with that spirit of wonder, the Allbirds journey began. After years of researching and tinkering, Tim teamed up with Joey Zwillinger, an engineer and renewables expert. Together, they crafted a revolutionary wool fabric made specifically for footwear. MADE FROM NATURE -The footwear industry often overlooks Mother Nature?s materials in favor of cheaper, synthetic alternatives. We think it?s time to change that. au.allbirds.com

Using social media to run a successful coffee shop
Making good coffee is only step one in running a successful coffee shop. Owners should also consider using social media for promotion. For example, competitions that offer prizes can be offered to whoever posts the best picture of their coffee from the barista. This should attract customers and also encourage the barista to make coffee that looks great as well as taste good!?www.espressoworks.com.au
