These Upcycled Sweater Slippers, created by designer Josie Marsh, provide you with a super comfy way to kick off your day in style. The slippers are fashioned from old sweaters and combined from varying horizontal stripes that create a really vibrant effect.

What I particularly like about these Upcycled Sweater Slippers is the actual design of the slipper: most slippers just come around the ankle, but this one is more of a hybrid slipper-boot. You can get your own Upcycled Sweater Slippers through Josie Marsh's Etsy store.

Implications - The eco-movement has been an important cultural factor that has shaped the way youth consumers interpret the world around them. These consumers are looking for meaningful ways that they can contribute to the reduction of waste and, ultimately, carbon dioxide. Companies can court these consumers by creating campaigns that focus on their initiatives to minimize waste.
