Just imagine instead of the usual scenario, shoes bringing dirt into the house, shoes that are made for cleaning up the dirt instead, as you walk around the house.
Electrolux imagined it and came up with a concept for a nice clean pair - a definite "must have" for cleaning fanatics or the shoe obsessed. That's right. It is the long awaited, always wished for Vacuum Shoes. Thanks to Electrolux, dreaming of a cleaner home has become much easier, or at least will be soon. They aren't out on the market yet. Only on-line pictures of the shoes taunt us, as we wait for their arrival.
How green are they? Well, other than their hospital green color, I'm not sure. I've found no information on how the shoes suction or store the dirt nor how they turn on or off, but I do know there is no cord to plug in (no electricity used). And, because they are shoes, it will very likely require walking which means you will get more exercise while cleaning the house, talking on the phone or doing whatever it is you do at home.
Can you imagine never having to worry about the dirt you or your family bring in? This means cleaner carpets- less steam cleaners and cleaning supplies will be required which means a cleaner house with less toxins. A cleaner more environmentally friendly house means less allergies for you and your family. It's a win win situation no matter how you look at it.
They aren't very fashionable and they don't look very comfortable, but it's a start and I'd be willing to try them, if I could. See Green Shoes Here
