The video says Pepsi, Evian, and Coca-Cola are using Loop resin. The companies are not yet using Loop’s resin, however, they plan to when Loop’s South Carolina plant is operational. Insider regrets the error.

In 2015 Adidas partnered with Parley for the Oceans to turn marine pollution like plastic bottles into shoes and sportswear. Like its Ultraboost and Alphaboost shoes, the two companies have prevented over 2,800 tons of plastic from reaching the ocean. And in 2019 Adidas expects to make 11 million pairs of shoes with recycled marine waste. But how are these shoes made?
Plastic bottles that contain PET are broken down into plastic flakes then cut into small resin pellets. These pellets are melted to create a filament, which is spun into what Adidas calls Ocean Plastic, a replacement for virgin polyester. Each item in the Parley collection is made of at least 75% recycled plastic. Adidas is also developing a 100% recyclable shoe called Futurecraft Loop, which is expected to be available in 2021.

That's one days worth of plastic from this country. America gets blamed for pollution but facts tell a different story.

With a staggering 2,000 tonnes of plastic flowing down it every day, the Citarum River in Java, Indonesia is believed to be dirtiest in the world.

While its great they are helping clean up the planet, synthetic fiber is still harmful to both us and our environment. We need to use sustainable natural materials.

Wait then why are their shoes so damn expensive lol maybe they just want to save money by using plastic. Either way, it's a win win for them; they save money, and they receive a good image 🤷‍♂️

Now, imagine all that plastic could be turned into something new. Not just shoes.
Imagine, If shops woul charge extra money for each plastic bottle sold, unless customer brings one back.
Plastic pollution can be stopped.

Maybe if adidas didn’t charge 150-200 dollars per pair they would be able to get rid of more plastic. But of course they won’t do that
