Would You Wear Clothes Made From Poo, And Other Agricultural Waste?
20/06/2019

Disposing of agricultural waste is an expensive and complicated issue for many farmers. But now a number of innovative companies are turning this waste into clothes for us to wear.

When Dutch artist Jalila Essaïdi was looking to import some American goats, they produce a protein she needed for a ‘bio-art’ project, she hit an unexpected obstacle. When she approached farmers in the Netherlands about housing the goats they said they could only help if she could “solve the manure problem”.

In the Netherlands, almost all animal farms produce more poo than they can legally use as fertiliser and getting rid of the excess is expensive. But it is not just a Dutch problem.
