These Jeans Contain Actual Coffee Grounds—Here's Why
In the world filled with recycled and repurposed materials, it's not uncommon to hear about denim made from a wide variety of items: plastic, bottle caps, old denim, seatbelts, and everything in between. But forgive us if we never really thought of coffee as a candidate for making jeans—although apparently it is.
American Eagle just released its much-anticipated AEO Denim X Café collection, a line of jeans made using old coffee grounds. Why, you might ask? There's actually a very good reason.
"Café X uses recycled, otherwise-unusable coffee grounds, giving old coffee new life. The treatment process itself leaves the coffee grounds completely odourless once they become one with your jeans," a release from the brand reads. "In addition to waking you up, coffee has another perk in the form of a natural deodorizing property: the coffee grounds work to absorb odours and are fast-drying."
There you have it. These jeans are sustainable, eco-friendly, and will make you less stinky. Sounds pretty good to us. Keep scrolling to shop the coffee jeans now!
