Shoes made with recycled ocean plastic

post-image

In 2019 Adidas expects to make 11 million pairs of shoes with recycled ocean plastic. That's more than double what it made in 2018. Adidas says their partnership with Parley for the Oceans has prevented 2,810 tons of plastic from reaching the oceans. And this is just the first step. Adidas is also developing a 100% recyclable shoe called the Futurecraft Loop. This shoe is made to be remade- it can be returned and broken down to create a brand-new pair.  https://www.businessinsider.com/adidas-sneakers-plastic-bottles-ocean-waste-recycle-pollution-2019-8
