Whether we're opting for a reusable water bottle, skipping the straws in our drinks at happy hour, or using reusable grocery bags, living a little more environmentally friendly reduces our carbon footprint and helps out the planet in a big way.
Research shows we tend to put our money in socially conscious companies, so it makes sense we'd opt for forward-thinking fashion brands with eco-friendly missions. One company making strides in sustainability is Reebok, who just released a pair of sneakers made from organic cotton and inedible corn waste.
The NPC UK Cotton sneakers is the first product from The Reebok Future team as part of their "Cotton + Corn" sustainable products initiative they've been working on for over five years. The team tasked with creating shoes as stylish as they are sustainable experimented with cork and other natural materials, though none were good enough to meet their needs.
