This food chain is launching clothes dyed with waste avocado pits

Aug 04, 2020 18:19 IST

In a possible sustainability lesson for fellow food chains, Chipotle has announced that it will employ used avocado pits that would otherwise go to waste to dye clothes, bags and more! The company is launching a fashion line called Chipotle Goods, which will include 'responsibly sourced' apparel made with organic cotton and other merchandise. The Mexican food chain said that nearly 300 million avocado pits go to waste across its restaurants every year. But now Chipotle will upcycle leftover pits to make sustainable, plant-based dye varying in colour, that ultimately results in one-of-a-kind apparel and accessories for the brand.
