National Second prize winner

RENS Sneaker

RENS is the world's first sneaker made from coffee & plastic waste.


The world creates over 2.5 million tons of coffee waste per year and only 5% of those are recycled while the rest is dumped into landfills. At the same time, by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than there will be fish. RENS is the world’s first sneaker made from both Coffee and Plastic waste.
