GEAR PATROL: Today in Gear: In-the-Know on New Releases
Most people have heard of collecting coffee grounds to feed your soil, but brands are doing much more with the post-bean. For example, Lilienthal Berlin is pressing grounds sourced from coffee shops and roasteries in Berlin into a surprising type of product: watches. The “Coffee Watch” features a Swiss quartz movement, sapphire-hardened mineral glass, a leather strap and a case made of used coffee grounds. The watch was created in partnership with Kaffeeform, which has been producing and peddling reusable coffee cups made from coffee grounds since 2009. So whether you’re committed to living more sustainably – or just love to wake up to the smell (or feel) of coffee – this might be the watch for you. Today we’re looking at a new line of athleisure sunglasses, bike lights and a cooling sun hoodie. This is Today in Gear.
