A forward-thinking fashion label has taken to printing the graphics on its clothes with ink made of air pollution, Fast Company writes.

The aptly named Air-Ink, a creation of MIT brainiacs, consists of carbon particles that have been collected from the air and then purified, the article explains.

The benefits of this innovation for Mother Earth and its denizens are apparent. These carbon particles – left untrapped and free to float wherever they please – would otherwise be inhaled by people and impact vital functions. They would also contribute to atmospheric warming.
