Further, the popular activewear brand said it will stop using virgin plastics in its offices, retail outlets, warehouses and distribution centres. They estimate they will save the planet of 40 tons of plastic per year.
This isn’t the first time Adidas has made waves in the environmentally sustainable space. Earlier this year, they released a shoe in collaboration with the platform Parley to help reduce plastic in the ocean.
