Turned Recycled Coffee Beans Into Clothing
  by Susan Devaney as published by the Huff Post


Sundried, a UK-based sportswear brand, has designed a new range for men and women made entirely from recycled waste. The ethical activewear fashion brand, which produces their collections in Portugal and Italy, pride themselves on their innovative and sustainable technology. The new range was made from coffee grounds processed in a low-temperature, high-pressured environment, to turn them into yarn.
