Sneaker are great, until their rubber soles end up in a landfill. But OAT Shoes have developed a biodegradable design, to keep your sneakers from outliving you.

Besides being ultra colorful and having a unique, eco-inspiring logo on the bottom, these shoes feature an extra design bonus. When buried in the ground, they will actually sprout and grow flowers.

Now this is a totally new approach to product life cycle, making the design useful even after it is thrown out. What does the life cycle look like in the products you design?
