C'mon 90's kids, get your fix of some of that sweet, sweet nostalgia. Back when things were simple. If you wanted to rent a movie you had to go to a store. The ketchup was blue, and the charizards were holographic.
No, not from Spiderman, but yarn and fabrics made up of single-use plastic bottles--many found floating in the ocean--sewed into hip clothes. That's the idea behind the company Bionic Yarn, co-founded by Tyson Toussant, partnered with ocean protector Paul Watson, and with recording artist Pharrell Williams as their Creative Director.
They make denim jeans, snowboarding jackets, boat covers, furniture, and other products using their innovating product.
Their concept is to clean the oceans and promote using reusable products. For instance, they promote facts about plastic bottle usage:
Apparently, since "plastic bottles are made up of the same polymer as polyester," Bionic Yarn can bypass the use of crude oil-based yarn products through their own recycling process.
They refine the bottles into chips and then heat and pull-apart the fibers and spin them into yarn. They can then mix the yarn with cotten or wool for whatever item they want to sew.
These aren't your Mama's recycled pants.

Mashable reports that there is a way to charge your new iPhone 7 AND use headphones at the same time: by buying a $39 phone dock to charge your phone on and plug your headphones into THAT.
Contrary to popular belief over on Planet Apple, however, we humans do NOT like to be tethered to the wall in order to listen to music on our ALREADY-OWNED high-end headphones when our battery is low, so we'd prefer a better setup, thanks.
So until further notice, Apple, we are still needing you to make a splitter that will allow headphones AND a charging cable, but at least there is this quick fix to help in the meantime:
Thanks, third party suppliers!
Summer's almost over, but the fun can keep going all Autumn long with this Giant Cockroach Raft!
