Rens, a Finnish athleisure brand, is known for its climate-neutral sneakers made of coffee grounds. Rens has now added a bamboo hoodie to its line. This hoodie, which is vegan, has been made from recycled plastics, coffee grounds, and bamboo viscose.
One “Elemental” hoodie costs 99 euros. To make it, you need coffee grounds from 43 cups and recycled polyester from 12.5 bottles. The remaining 40% is made up of bamboo viscose.
Bamboo viscose can be used to make a hoodie or other athleisure garment. It is soft and breathable, and it dries quickly. The fiber is also gentle on the skin and has antibacterial properties. It is also UV-ray protected.
It can also regulate temperature, so it can be used in both summer and winter. Bamboo viscose has a high color stability, which means that the five colors of the “Elemental hoodie” – Beyond Black (Embered Red), Earthen Peach (Embered Red), Lagoon Turquoise (Squall White) – will remain vivid and true to life even after repeated washing.
These fibers require significantly less energy to make, which makes them more affordable to produce. They also have a fast growth rate and are one of the most renewable resources on Earth. The hoodie will be made in a climate-neutral manner. The brand states that Rens will offset climate-related emissions by supporting ClimatePartner’s recommended climate projects.
The hoodies also have a zippered hidden pocket in the front pocket. This allows you to store keys, your phone, wallet, or any other valuables safely and conveniently. A second zippered pocket is located in the biceps.

Rens offered its first piece of clothing as both a physical and limited edition NFT. The brand’s website has instructions on how to get it. The NFT will be given to the first purchasers of the hoodie as a gift.
The gift is free of any costs, with Rens paying the gas fee. Distribution will be thrilling with almost 2,022 pieces of the limited edition divided into rare, epic and regular NFT. The brand reveals that the NFT distribution will be random and not known until April 14.
