Good Luck.
Adidas has created sports shoe from garbage floating in ocean. new trainer is part of project to raise awareness of serious problem of ocean pollution. Adidas has joined forces with organisation called Parley, which is dedicated to protecting and preserving Earth's oceans. Parley's founder Cyrill Gutsch spoke about his organisation's cooperation with Adidas. He said: "Our objective is to boost public awareness and to inspire new collaborations that can contribute to protect and preserve oceans. We are extremely proud that Adidas is joining us in this mission…to show that it is possible to turn ocean plastic into something cool."

Garbage in ocean is huge problem. UNESCO estimates that in 2006, there were nearly 30,000 pieces of floating plastic for every square kilometre of ocean. Plastic debris kills over million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals every year. Adidas used some of this plastic to make its new trainer. sole of the sneaker is made from sustainable materials, while upper uses recycled ocean waste. This consisted of plastic and illegal fishing nets. Adidas says it will be releasing new trainer made from ocean waste later this year. In another green initiative, sportswear maker said it would be phasing out use of plastic bags in all Adidas retail stores in near future.
