We are filling the oceans with crap, it is estimated that each year more than 8 million tons of plastic end up there, take account of what we have accumulated in recent times.

It is known that much of this plastic is found floating in the well-known oceanic turning points, where the tides meet. There are 5 major points throughout the Earth, although the largest is known as "The Island of Garbage", in the North Pacific, which, beware, has a size of 1,400,000 square kilometers. An atrocity.

There are already several projects to try to reduce this amount of waste, one of the most prominent and interesting due to its simple application is that of Boyan Slat, a 20-year-old boy who believes that the oceans can clean themselves by putting up barriers that trap the junk at those pivot points.

Adidas creates sneakers with recycled plastic

Obviously there are also many more organizations with the aim of preserving the environment one of them is "Parley for the Oceans", who also share the discourse of rescuing all that plastic and using it to create new products.

At the end of last April, Parley announced the collaboration with the sports giant Adidas and today they have announced one of the results of that collaboration: the first shoes created from plastic discarded in the ocean.

As you can see in the images, this prototype shoe (which surely will not reach stores or in a very limited way) shows how all that recovered plastic can be used, since the upper of the model is created from waste yarns and filaments oceanic.

It cannot be denied that it is a beautiful design and a good example of how all the plastic present in the ocean can be used again, not only for sneakers, but to combine in fabrics, electronic products, transport and more.
