S.Cafe Fleece Jacket - Made with Recycled Coffee Grounds

sCafe_EMS_Jacket.jpgAlways interested in recycling and love to see used coffee grounds put to good use in things like Javalogs or composted to help grow something around the house. The fabric called S.Cafe caught my eye though as it uses recycled coffee grounds to build out a fabric that goes into all kinds of things including the new EMS Gridtech Fleece that will keep me warm this fall.

The fabric isn't made just from coffee grounds, but apparently a mixture of coffee grounds in a low percentage along with polyester, which for this jacket is then spun into a fleece. The maker of S.Cafe claims that the coffee helps to control odors (traps odors just like it once held coffee aroma), is fast drying and reflects UV rays. My hunch is that any fleece will do the later two items pretty well. The company started the development process by collecting grounds from local coffee shops, but now sources the spend coffee from manufacturers diverting the waste from landfill, ultimately to my closet.

You can check out the S.Cafe site yourself to learn more about the fiber.
