Some time ago we wrote about an adidas shoe made from recycled ocean waste. This concept has been taken up once again by the three-stripe company and reintroduced into the Parley for the Oceans. The result is the UltraBoost Uncaged Parley. Unlike the other similar model, which was limited to just 50 pairs, the UltraBoost Uncaged Parley is going into mass production.
Eleven plastic bottles go into a single pair of shoes. adidas' has made its aim known: to completely erase raw materials from the supply chain. The first 7,000 pairs will be introduced to the market in mid November. This figure will then be increased to one million pairs in 2017. Apart from these shoes, adidas is also manufacturing jumpers for football clubs like FC Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. An amazing campaign to save our oceans and protect the environment, don't you think?
