A Kiwi footwear has done a world first; creating a fully biodegradable shoe.  

It's come from Orba and is called the Ghost Sneaker, made entirely of natural materials, things like rice husk, corks and coconut husks.  

Orba's sustainability manager Gillian Boucher joined Mike Hosking. 

Orba shoes can be found here.
