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

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