Completely non food-related, but I had to post about my new favorite thing: a pair of New Balance newSky shoes. They’re made of 95% postconsumer recycled PET bottles, a thin, comfortable sole and chartreuse laces. Each pair uses about 8 recycled bottles. I got them today from Amazon.com, and when I took them out of the box, I was absolutely, positively, for-sure convinced they’d be too small. They have such a slim profile. Yet when I slipped them on over a pair of medium-weight wool socks, they fit perfectly. Hooray for shoes, like food, that are good for you and good for the planet!
