Now you can even WEAR your coffee! (and we're not talking about spill stains here)

But while coffee fabric is branded as an eco-friendly alternative, coffee is only part of the story.

From an energy and water consumption perspective, recycled PET is a better alternative than using virgin PET, and it also means repurposing a product that has a long lifespan (it is estimated that plastic bottles can take upwards of 500 years to decompose). But whether recycled or not, they both remain petroleum-based products—products that come with negative consequences.
