Event Description

The True Cost of a Sneaker - Sophia Colmenares 
When we think of sneakers, Air Jordans and Chuck Taylors come to mind, but have you ever wondered the environmental impact of owning the latest pair of sneakers? In this RadLab, we'll explore the anatomy of sneakers and how each part is created. From there, we'll discuss the actual carbon footprint produced by the most iconic sneaker brands and the industry as a whole. The ethical component of the industry such as labor regulations will also be touched on. Do "knot" miss this environmentally-centered RadLab!
