Don’t consign your moldy old gym shoes to the landfill (or worse, chuck them in some unsuspecting charity’s donation bin ). With OAT’s fully biodegradable sneakers , you can plant them in your backyard to produce a patch of wildflowers. The two-year-old Dutch label accomplishes this with its innovative materials: soft, breathable canvas and flexible seed-embedded cork soles that literally go to pot when you bury them. Your loss is Ma Nature’s gain.
