Adidas' New Shoes Aren't Complete Garbage, They're Just Made Out Of It
After being directly linked to theÂ Chinese water pollution debacle of 2011, Adidas is still working to rebuild its reputation and become known as an eco-forward company, and not part of the global pollution problem. Their most recently designed shoe is certainly a step in the right direction - one of hopefully many more to come.
Through a partnership with multidisciplinary creative environmentalism organization, Parley For The Oceans, Adidas created aÂ concept sneakerÂ made almostÂ completely out of plastic waste and discarded fishnets from the sea.

According toÂ Ocean Crusaders, "100,000 marine creatures a year die from plastic entanglement, and these are the ones found."
No pun intended.
Let's just hope that they fulfill their promise, and that other companies that have been guilty of environmental pollution in the past (Nike, Puma, Lacoste, H&M) follow in their path.
