Adidas Will Only Use Recycled Plastic In Products By 2024

Adidas is not the only company in the industry of clothing production, striving to use recycled materials. This move will have an impact on their manufacturing of everything from shoes to sports bras and everything in between.

Adidas reported on Monday that it will be committing to only using recycled plastics by 2024.

Plastic is cited as being one of the most common durable man-made materials on the planet by National Geographic in their "Planet or Plastics" series, yet the rate it is recycled is considered very low.

According to reports, Adidas also expects to see growth in their recycled plastics shoe line called Parley.

The use of cheap and versatile plastic has grown 8.6 percent every year since 1950, and it's estimated there will be 12 billion tons of plastics in natural environments by 2050. In particular, products made from recycled plastic will be much easier and faster to dry after washing. Globally, 14 percent of plastic is recycled compared to over 50 percent of paper and around 90 percent of iron and steel.

In 2015, the manufacturer has shown that the shoes can be made from ocean debris.

The tides are turning.

"Our goal is to get rid of virgin polyester overall by 2024", Eric Liedtke, head of Adidas' global brands, told the Financial Times. Currently, about half of all used materials have Adidas on polyester.
