Last June, Adidas teamed up with Parley for the Oceans, a group dedicated to ridding the world’s oceans of toxic waste. Instead of allowing for plastic bottles and nylon from gill nets to cause harm to our natural environments, Adidas managed to create highly coveted footwear that actually aids the organization’s mission to rid our waters of harmful plastics Adidas stated their 2018 goal was to release five millions pairs of shoes. According to Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted, Adidas sold 1 million pairs of these specific types of footwear in 2017, which translates to 11 million plastic bottles from the ocean were recycled into highly profitable product.
