Innovate plastics in the ocean into nike shoes · Change.org
Gabe Florez started this petition to NIKE
The reason this is important to many people is because the amount of plastics in the ocean is detrimental to the environment and humans. Every year, the total increases. By 2050, it is said there will be more plastics in the ocean than marine life. Plastics harm every part marine food webs physically entangling marine life and poisoning them from within. If Nike incorporated large amounts of plastics into innovative athletic shoes, they would be making a huge difference in the plastic problem. In 2017, Adidas sold over a million shoes created from plastics in the ocean. We want the biggest sports company, Nike, to create shoes from plastics in the ocean and help save marine ecosystems one step at a time.
