VTV.vn - A new project is drawing lots of attention within the startup community.

It's the world's first waterproof shoe that's made of recycled materials from coffee and plastic. This is the start-up project of two Vietnamese who live in Finland. Each pair of shoes is made from 21 coffee cups and 6 plastic bottles.

Rens is located in Helsinki, Finland. Their first environmental friendly shoes will reach customers in November.
