The Last Week In Plastic
Parley and Adidas
Remember last year Parley and Adidas came up with a prototype shape made of marine plastic? Well unlike a lot of these colabs this has actually gone somewhere and they have rolled out a production model. But they haven’t stopped there. Giants of European football Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, both now wear strips made from marine plastic collected in The Maldives to help raise awareness.

Ever thought about how many plastic toothbrushes get used every year? Well we’re working on some stats, but there are billions, used for a few months and chucked. Very rarely recycled, they end in landfill, but there are solutions, how about a Bamboo Toothbrush from The Bamboo brush Society?
