Earth Day is all about recycling and sustainability. Italian sneaker company, AliveShoes, does both!
Recycling: Do you ever recycle vintage clothes into art, or something new? They do the opposite. They make brand new kicks, send them to artists to be included in installations, then take the work apart and sell the shoes when the artist is done with them.
Pied a Terre, in Montelago, Italy, by Argentinean designer Sebastiano Mauri, made from 227 pairs of AliveShoes
Beach Blocks by New York artist Steven Siegel, made with 416 pairs of AliveShoes
Sustainability: AliveShoes are made from natural or organic cotton, leather, cork, and biodegradable thermoplastic polyurethane. AND, they are all handmade in Italy.Each sneaker has an id number and a copy of the artist’s original sketch stitched into the tongue.
Special Earth Day shoutout to our friends at Inhabitat, who are celebrating their 5 year anniversary!!!

fuseproject designer, Yves Behar, and Puma have come up with this Clever Little Bag, a solution to the waste created by sneaker sales.
Clever, indeed: eliminating paper, plastic, and most of the cardboard, sneakers are packed in a red shoe bag inside of a recyclable, folding box. This new design can save over 8500 tons of paper, a million liters of fuel oil, and over 275 tons of plastic – per year! Sweet! Happy Earth Day, internet!

Ever wanted to tag a tomato? Now you can!
Yesterday, we told you about Wode, Boudicca’s disappearing body graffiti perfume (a product you can spray it on your skin, but is NOT ok to eat – one of the ingredients is hemlock, which supposedly killed Socrates, and a bunch of other characters from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure).
If you want a cool spray you can EAT, dig this:
Esslack Food Spray by The Deli Garage (Germany)
Available in gold (and silver), this thing will give you the Midas touch. You can bling out your fave foods, turn silver medals into gold, put your tag on a sandwich, pimp your ride, and ride the recession out like a baller – in the cafeteria, at least.
We wonder what French graffiti artist Fafi would spray on her food.
