Most people have heard of collecting coffee grounds to feed your soil, but brands are doing much more with the post-bean. For example, Lilienthal Berlin is pressing grounds sourced from coffee shops and roasteries in Berlin into a surprising type of product: watches. The “Coffee Watch” features a Swiss quartz movement, sapphire-hardened mineral glass, a leather strap and a case made of used coffee grounds. The watch was created in partnership with Kaffeeform, which has been producing and peddling reusable coffee cups made from coffee grounds since 2009. So whether you’re committed to living more sustainably – or just love to wake up to the smell (or feel) of coffee – this might be the watch for you.

Article One is an independent eyewear brand championing high-quality athleisure frames. Today, it announced a second, five-piece collection of sunglasses that boast lighter-weight frames, enhanced flexibility and enhanced scratch resistance. The company explains that this collection “deliberately resists performance aesthetics” and challenges the expectation that technical eyewear needs to look competitive or intense. All five frames are made with hexetate and CR39 polarized lenses with a backside anti-reflective coating that blocks 100 percent of UVA/UVB rays and prevents road glare. The glasses will each retail for $199 beginning on July 26.
