Houdini has found a way to fully recycle their worn-out products: turn them into compost and help grow important food and crops

Would you eat a meal, where everything was grown local, fresh, and with soil made from old sweatpants? Clothing company Houdini certainly thinks so. The Houdini Menu was a special eating experience where eight fans from social media were chosen to eat an all-vegetarian meal grown in soil containing worn-out garments. Because the company's clothes are crafted out of 100 percent cotton, they can be composted and used to grow all kinds of plants.

Chef Sebastian Thureson created the one-of-a-kind meal, which reflected the process of how the ingredients were grown: “Houdini has a certain honesty to them and the way they make their clothes. When I created the menu for the dinner I wanted to capture the fact that it is created from old clothes, but also give that honest feeling to every dish. In the end, that resonates well with how I want to cook in my job.”

See how these well-loved clothes turned into a hearty meal below:
