People pour plastics into oceans like there's no tomorrow. It comes up to more than eight million tons in a year. There's probably no trick or a single solution that could resolve the situation, which we as humans got into, with a snap of a finger. We can fight the big battle with smaller steps though. Such example is the result of the collaboration between adidas and Parley For The Oceans - sneakers that are made from plastic bottles pulled out from the sea. Each pair of adidas x Parley is made of more than ten plastic bottles, which is definitely better than leaving the bottles to decompose at the bottom of the ocean for centuries ...
Every runner needs to be confident on the track. The adidas UltraBOOST 22 running shoes give you exactly that feeling. You'll run as light as a feather and race the wind at the same time.
