Adidas x Parley Ocean Plastic TrainerView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
The Ocean Plastic Trainer aimed to create awareness around the threat of marine plastic pollution, by incorporating 50% of the material for a range of sneakers as plastic intercepted from the ocean. Adidas had created more than 32 million pairs of shoes with Parley Ocean Plastic by 2020. This was the world’s first shoe to be made from marine plastic waste and it brought about a sustainability revolution in the sports and fashion worlds (Jain et al., 2021). Evidence for reach in education and awareness can be inferred from the support of the product.
Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
