This Fashion Company Turned Its Old Clothes into Food

The clothing company grew a five-course fine-dining menu from some old gym clothes
In an effort to prove that its clothes are sustainable and biodegradable, a Swedish clothing company composted its old athleticwear and used it to grow food, which it then served at a pop-up restaurant in Stockholm.
