Adidas Switches to Recycled Polyester, Plans to End Plastic Waste by 2024

Adidas has joined the list of major fashion brands to pursue a more sustainable process of manufacturing. The brand has made a commitment to END PLASTIC WASTE through innovation and partnerships.

Since 2012, adidas has innovated new products and processes with sustainability focused partners like Parley for the Oceans, Stella McCartney and the U.S. International Space Station. After introducing a single shoe at the United Nations in 2015, the long-term eco-innovation partnership with Parley for the Oceans that will lead to more than 15 million pairs of shoes being produced with Parley Ocean Plastic.  This year will also mark the launch of PRIMEBLUE and PRIMEGREEN performance fabrics, two new sustainable technologies where 100% of the polyester used is recycled.

PRIMEBLUE, a performance fabric which contains Parley Ocean Plastic, is now included in some of the brand’s most iconic and visible performance products like Ultraboost 20 and in the uniforms of some of the biggest leagues and teams in the world.

PRIMEGREEN, a performance fabric which contains no virgin plastic, will be available later this year and will also be featured in key competitive products. Both performance fabrics will play a significant role in adidas reaching more than 50% total volume of recycled polyester at the end of 2020 and its commitment to END PLASTIC WASTE.

adidas’ commitment comes to life through a Three Loop Strategy, which focuses the brand’s efforts on creating three categories of sustainable products:

Recycled Loop – Made from Recycled Materials: Supported by the introduction of PRIMEBLUE and PRIMEGREEN performance fabrics. 
Circular Loop – Made to be Remade: Products whose lifecycles continue after each use, like the Futurecraft Loop running shoe.
Bionic Loop – Made with Nature: adidas’ ambition to create future where every adidas product can have multiple lives and then return to nature.
As the original sports brand, adidas continues to create only the best products for its athletes, and these sustainable products are no exception. All of these more sustainable products will meet or exceed all of adidas’ elite performance standards.

In the next decade the brand is committed to doing even more to END PLASTIC WASTE.

"We believe that through sport we have the power to change lives, and we are dedicated to creating that change. Since 1998, we’ve been developing and introducing innovations to END PLASTIC WASTE. Our commitment to eliminate the use of virgin polyester in our products by 2024 helps us get one step closer to being a more circular company,” James Carnes, VP Brand Strategy said.

adidas’ products and processes will be a part of a new circular business model that includes extending the life of a product through rental, repair or re-commerce, being remade into new products and then ultimately returning to nature. Using materials that can be recycled multiple times, developed from natural resources or made from cells and proteins in a lab.
