Nike reveals Space Hippie — sustainable sneakers made from waste

Nike has launched a new, exploratory collection, aptly named Space Hippie, to highlight the NASA-inspired concept of in-situ resource utilization — the idea of using space-based resources during deep space exploration. By taking the company’s own “space junk” from the floors of its manufacturing warehouses, Nike is turning waste into feedstock, creating a sustainable sneaker that combines high performance with low impact. The Space Hippie shoes are assembled using recycled “space junk”, such as recycled plastic water bottles, T-shirts and yarn scraps. The “Crater Foam” tooling is made up of a combination of Nike Grind rubber and recycled foam materials. According to Nike, every aspect of the Space Hippie line was chosen with sustainability in mind, from the material to the production methods to the packaging. The new shoes boast the lowest carbon footprint score compared to the company’s other products. The collection includes four different shoe designs, appropriately named Space Hippie 01, 02, 03 and 04, and the styles are nothing short of unique. The sustainable sneakers feature gray bodies with complementary orange elements, including the iconic Nike Swoosh. Nike doesn’t see...

Carney Plastics Moves into Medical Field to Fight Virus

YOUNGSTOWN – A small plastics fabricator here has been tapped to make a device that protects doctors and nurses from COVID-19. Carney Plastics, which usually makes display cases for model cars, has already made more than 100 intubation boxes for hospitals, including several in the Mahoning Valley.  The clear acrylic boxes are used as a shield for medical personnel when they insert or remove breathing tubes in the mouths of patients. The boxes block virus-containing droplets from the patient’s mouth from spraying outward. The box was designed by a Taiwanese doctor after it was discovered that doctors and nurses were being exposed to the virus during intubation procedures. Sean Carney, president of Carney Plastics, said his company’s experience in making acrylic cases and industry connections made it a natural to manufacture intubation boxes. The device is a 20” by 20” by 18” cube with one side open so that it can be placed over the patient’s face. Another side has two openings into which the doctor inserts his arms to complete the intubation procedure. Carney Plastics, 1010 W. Rayen Ave., got started March 24, after receiving a call from Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hosp...
