You Wear What You Drink

BOULDER, Colo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Environmentalists can now wear their coffee on their sleeves.

Textile manufacturer Singtex Industrial is turning people’s morning cup of joe into a cool piece of clothing with their S.Cafe fabrics made entirely out of coffee grounds.

One medium cup of coffee is enough to make two shirts out of the fabric, which means the grounds left in coffeemakers won’t end up in landfills.

Not only are the fabrics environmentally-friendly, they also offer UV protection and odor control, and won’t leave people smelling like a warm cup of coffee, but rather keep B.O. at bay.

Spokesperson Mike Costa says, “We did impart the coffee smell originally, but we thought it was a bit much to smell like coffee all day.”

Though wearing the coffee cloth won’t give users a continuous java jolt throughout the day because most of the caffeine is lost during brewing, the fabric has a cooling agent that helps keep active folks fresh.
