Brands pledge to use Recycled Plastic Waste in Production

Recycling is key in helping conserve natural resources and protect the global environment for human wellbeing. Among the long list of recyclable materials, plastic waste recycling is one of the major aspects to be focussed on. Plastic waste in landfills, incineration, and more are creating immense negative impacts on the environment.

Countries around the world are shifting towards sustainable waste management practices, of which recycling is a key solution. However, the rate of waste generation far exceeds the existing capacity of waste management and recycling.

To reverse the effects of improper waste disposal on the environment, Some of the top brands have finally taken the initiatives towards:

  • Conserving Natural resources,
  • Reduced emissions of pollutants,
  • Take Back programs and
  • Use recycled materials in the manufacturing process.

  1. Adidas:  A well known label that manufactures top-quality fashion products has made its way to promote a healthy environment. In 2015, Adidas announced its partnership with Parley for the Oceans – an environmental organization to contribute to a better society & the planet. The call to repurpose the ocean’s plastic waste into sportswear (shoes) has resulted in great success. Adidas has also commented that about 40% of its products are produced using ocean plastic and will replace the usage of virgin polyester entirely by 2024.
