Some of our stories…

Parley Ocean Plastic® is created from upcycled marine plastic waste that is intercepted from remote islands, beaches and coastal communities. The brand uses it as a replacement for virgin plastic in the making of all adidas x Parley high-performance sportswear. After collecting plastic waste from coastlines, it’s baled and sent to Parley supply chain partners. There it’s shredded and reworked to become high-performance polyester yarn: Parley Ocean Plastic™, which is then used to create adidas x Parley sportswear, that’s as good for the planet as it is for the workout.
