Everywhere USA, May 2016—While weekend breakfasts are often bigger affairs (and sometimes involve alcohol)—weekdays demand a more utilitarian fare. Most of us are looking for a breakfast that’s quick, transportable and satisfying enough to keep your belly full and mind sharp until lunchtime.

One option, the suggestion of Dr. Walter Willett, chair of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, is a combination of whole grains, nuts and fruit, plus a bit of yogurt. He adds that berries in particular are an ideal fruit for breakfast (or anytime). Packed with fiber and healthy polyphenols, there’s a lot of research to suggest blueberries, blackberries and their tart cousins are protective against cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer—even the non-gut types like breast cancer.

Seattle, Washington, May 2016—Textile technology startup Evrnu™, and global jeanswear leader Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co)recently announced they have created the world’s first jean made from regenerated post-consumer cotton waste.

Using a new, patent-pending recycling technology, discarded consumer waste is converted into renewable fiber. The prototype, in the form of a pair of iconic Levi’s® 511® jeans, is hoped to represent a future where textile waste is reduced and cotton garments are continually regenerated to create a more sustainable world.

Each year in the U.S. alone, 13.1 million tons of textile waste is created and of this 11 million tons ends up in landfills. Until now, there hasn’t been a viable solution that effectively transforms old clothes into new without compromising quality or strength. With Evrnu technology, discarded cotton clothing can be turned into a new cotton-like fiber, creating new possibilities.
