Adidas Makes Sneakers From Ocean Trash And Illegal Fishing Nets Taken From Poachers

 

In a bid to remain eco-friendly, Adidas has collaborated with Parley For the Oceans, to make use of the plastic waste from used fishnets for making sneakers. Fishnets end up polluting the environment but it can be used for creation of sneakers. Recently, a sea-conservation organization named The Sea Shepherds, confiscated 72km of illegal gillnets after keeping a track on poachers for 110 days in West Africa. This was used by Adidas to make sneakers and Adidas has ensured that it will remain eco-friendly, refuting the accusations made by Greenpeace that they are causing environmental pollution. These shoes might hit the shelves by 2016. More info: adidas.com | parley.tv | seashepherd.org (h/t: ecouterre, huffpost)
