The coffee you can wear. Seriously. GreenBeanz Sun Protection Zone Jacket

Yes, I am such a coffee fanatic, I am now WEARING my coffee instead of just drinking it. You might think, Julie, you’ve gone too far now, but it isn’t as messy as you imagine! Sun Protection Zone is now retailing the very cool GreenBeanz™ hooded jacket for men and women. These jackets are made from recycled coffee grounds!! Yes, it’s true!! There’s a patented process that turns the grounds into eco friendly polyester fabric! Which, I think is amazing – I mean, here we thought we were cool just composting our coffee grounds – but someone had the genius to turn them into CLOTHING!! It doesn’t give you a caffeine buzz though, sorry to say!

The GreenBeanz fabric is rated 100 SPF/UPF 50+. In addition to the great sun protection, the jacket functions wonderfully as you’d expect a windbreaker to do – water repllant, lightweight, quick drying, and with an anti-bacterial finish to fight odors. I know, this photo doesn’t do it justice because I am 38 weeks pregnant, but even so, I can zip it up! I can’t wait for after I give birth, because this is going to be the perfect running jacket for the fall! Although it was really too warm for our 90 degree days in July, this jacket will be the ideal coverup for cooler weather activities. Without adding bulk or weight!

I’ve got my GreenBeanz jacket hanging up to inspire me to get out and get active after this baby is born! It comes in both men’s and women’s styles, and with three great color choices for each!

BUY IT: Sun Protection Zone offers sun protective clothing and accesories that are UPF rated and protect from UV rays: adult and children’s shirts, hats, jackets, sunshades, sunglasses, and sun exposure bracelets!
