After you're done with these sneakers from Dutch footwear maker OAT Shoes, don't throw 'em away. Bury 'em in the ground, instead. Don't worry - you're supposed to do that:
The second-place winner at Amsterdam’s Green Fashion Awards last week, OAT’s “Virgin Collection” is the world’s first line of sneakers that, upon disposal, will biodegrade and sprout trees. The materials—some developed by OAT itself—are all easily broken down, and tree seeds packed in the lining will hopefully leave saplings where your sneakers once stood.
