For years, plastic waste has been the major source of pollution, and adidas is dedicated to minimising its use of plastic. Shoes made from recycled ocean plastic given by Parley for the Oceans, a non-profit environmental organisation concentrating on ocean conservation, have been developed by the well-known worldwide sportswear brand. The converted plastic debris was gathered from isolated islands, beaches, coastal settlements, and shorelines to keep it out of the seas.
This collaboration is a great example of upcycling plastic and highlights the need of reducing plastic waste! adidas has also effectively eliminated the usage of single-use plastic and microbeads.

The Body Shop
Return, Recycle and Repeat with The Body Shop, and you’ll be rewarded with exclusive offers on your next purchase. The Body Shop is taking a stance to decrease packaging waste in the cosmetics industry, which generates over 120 billion pieces of packaging.
Cosmetics packaging are frequently labelled as ‘hard-to-recycle,’ implying that it will not be accepted by recycling agencies. This project, on the other hand, aims to process and recycle all ‘non-recyclable’ materials, avoiding garbage from being disposed of in landfills or incinerated.
Bring your empty, clean, and dry cosmetics packaging to The Body Shop and deposit it in the Return, Recycle, Repeat bins. While you’re there, have a look at the many body, scent, and skincare items they’re working on to enhance their environmental impact score.
