Avocados inspire new clothing line
When you clicked this blog and saw the tittle did you think that this blog would be about Smiling Avocado accessories or Avocado designed shirts? If you did congratulations you were WRONG!
Have you ever had Chipotle? If you haven’t… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!! After you finish reading this blog I highly suggest you order some Chipotle (especially some of there chips) Anyways, As most of you know Chipotle is a Mexican grill so they have guacamole and you need avocados to make guacamole. There is a estimate of 300 million avocados a year used for guacamole just in chipotle. So what happens with all those pits? Well Chipotle came up with a Genius new way to use those pits: Clothes
That’s right Chipotle is using those pits to make a line of accessories and clothing called Chipotle Goods. You might be wondering: how can you use avocado pits for clothing? Well it’s actually really simple! The pits simmer in water, creating a plant based dye that provides many different colors for clothes. According to Chipotle, Chipotle Goods profit will go to organizations that help make farming and fashion more sustainable.
I am going to be completely honest, When I saw an article in The Week Junior about Chipotle Goods I was shocked to see that someone was able to find a way to reuse avocado pits and that ALL profits are going to different organizations.
Some if the difference products are sweatshirts, avocado-lined jean jackets, baby onesies etc.
