Adidas announces 3D-printed ocean plastic shoe
A few months ago, Adidas announced a partnership with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental organization that aims to end pollution of the world’s oceans, to create a new concept of eco-friendly sneakers, made from from plastic waste found in oceans, such as fishing nets and recycled objects. And now the German footwear manufacturer also created a 3D-printed midsole, aiming to set new, more sustainable standards in the fashion industry.
The news was announced at the Parley Talks at COP21, the United Nations Climate Conference (UN). According to Adidas, they used recycled polyester and illegal deep-sea gillnets recovered from the ocean.
