The Adidas UltraBoost shoe is made using plastic debris found in the ocean. With plastics estimated to make up almost 80 per cent of the total marine debris in the
world’s oceans, the Adidas collection is making waves in sustainability. In a further bid to end pollution, the German sportswear brand has joined forces with environmental initiative Parley for the Ocean for the second time with the Ultraboost, Ultraboost X, and
Ultraboost Uncaged. Helping to achieve Adidas’ goal of creating one million pairs of UltraBoost sneakers using ocean plastic this year, Parley for the Oceans are helping to turn waste into thread which is used in building the running shoes.
