Adidas makes shoe range from recycled plastic

We all know Adidas as the makers of high performance athletic gear, but they are also taking huge strides (pun intended) to look after the environment as well by removing all non-recycled plastic from their supply chain. To demonstrate their commitment to keep the oceans in particular free from plastic, Adidas have released a new range of footwear created entirely out of recycled plastic. This is a fantastic initiative by Adidas. If you are interested in learning more about the Parley A.I.R range click here.
