I’m usually more than a little skeptical when I hear the words green, recyclable, sustainable and so on used to describe a product or its lifecycle. Earthbaked is a great idea by my buddy Steve Boynton, who actually introduced me to the field of Industrial Design.
Earthbaked is an environmentally responsible shoe that is made form 100% natural materials and is meant to be a temporary, and actually sustainable shoe. it’s made from natural wool and rubber products that can then be buried in the ground at the end of the lifecycle where it will naturally decompose into nutrients for plans and so on. Pretty cool, right?
If you like Steve’s idea, go ahead and pitch in on kickstarter. The project just launched and he’s still a bit away from his goal.
