In case you haven't heard, according to record breaking sailor Dame Ellen MacArthur, by 2050, there will be more plastic waste in the sea than fish.
Not only is this killing sea life, and birds, it will also affect us. Whether you eat seafood or not, the ocean won't be clean enough for us to swim in if we continue to use this planet as a dustbin.
Adidas and Parley TV have collaborated together to make the Adidas Parley shoe. A high performance sports shoe that is made out of plastic. In fact eleven plastic bottles make one shoe.
It's about time we woke up and took responsibility for the only planet we have right now. After all good planets are hard to find.
