Adidas’s latest project is to make trainers from ocean trash by the end of 2017. Each pair of UltraBoost sneakers will use an average of 11 plastic bottles. In partnership with environmental initiative Parley for the Oceans they released a limited-edition ocean plastic waste sneaker last year. Now they are about to release three new running shoes.
The shoes will not be made entirely out of ocean plastic. Recycled plastic will be mostly applied to the Primeknit portion of the shoe otherwise renewable materials will be used where possible.
