KEDS | Kids Express Themselves Through Green Design

Posted By G Living Staff Monkies On May 12, 2008 @ 10:36 pm In G Living,Gardening Organically,Green Report / Media | No Comments

Many people think the best way to keep teenagers out of danger is through avoidance or abject fear, whereas I’ve always thought informative discussion was a more effective way to go. And what better way to spark a dialogue about the environmental repercussions of excessive bottled water consumption than through green sneaks?

I wish I could say the idea was mine, but it came from the geniuses at KEDS, who’ve teamed up with Boston non-profit Artists for Humanity to create this newfangled spin on their classic Champion slip-on shoe.

According to KEDS: “The young designers created the idea of ‘flying bottles’ as a creative way to express concerns about the environmental impact of bottled water consumption.” In addition, the shoes are constructed with 100% cotton, recycled factor rubber and water-based printing inks.

The shoes come in two colors, black or white. I’ll take one of each, please. After all, $1 per pair sold will be donated by KEDS to Artists for Humanity.

Great concept. Great looking shoe.
