Adidas, already a leader in sustainable business practices and innovation, has taken another step forward by designing shoes from plastic waste sourced from our oceans.  Plastic polluting our oceans is a major issue and Adidas, along with Parley for the Oceans, have joined together to help solve this problem.  Triple Pundit Adidas Article

Watch this film about how plastic in our oceans is affecting wild birds on Midway Island.  This sort of impact is happening all over the world in the remotest of locations.  Our oceans are dying and plastic is a significant contributing factor along with overfishing, and global warming – all caused by humans.  Note: the film is disturbing but I think essential viewing if we are to connect with the impact of our actions and work with urgency to change them.
