"More and more plastic products are being made from recycled pollution. This Shoe Without A Footprint is the latest demonstration.  

The sole of a new sneaker was once pollution: after carbon dioxide was captured from a power plant or other heavy industry, engineers transformed it to become the building block for a new type of foam.  

Called the "Shoe Without A Footprint," the prototype was designed as a demonstration for the Carbon XPrize, which will award $20 million for technology that makes new use of CO2."
