After a shoe is thrown out, it heads to a landfill. But a lot of shoes are made of material that can’t decompose. A story from Delaware Public Media highlights a team of researchers, including DENIN affiliates Huantian Cao and Kelly Cobb and former DENIN Scholar Jill Silverman, now a grad student in UD’s Department of Fashion and Apparel Studies, who are creating shoes from renewable and biodegradable materials including mushrooms and chicken feathers.
