Adidas has come up with an intriguing plan to reuse some of the eight million tons of plastic that end up accumulating in the ocean each year. It will now recycle that plastic to develop fibers for use in clothing and footwear.


The company announced a partnership with Parley for the Oceans, an ocean preservation group, and pledged to rid the ocean of plastic waste, starting in 2016, laundry.reviewed.com reported.

The firm also pledged to phase out its use of plastic bags at its retail stores.

The announcement has highlighted a growing focus on sustainability not only at Adidas but throughout the apparel industry, with many other companies taking similar steps.
