Adidas Women's Eezay Parley Flip-Flop Sandals Green - Size - 6. Sandals that not only feel good, but you can feel good about.Why should you feel good about wearing Eezay Parley Flip-Flop Sandals The answer lies in the part they play in trying to help solve the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans. Although the role these sandals play is admittedly tiny when you consider the dreadful amount of plastic that is said to be floating in the North Pacific Ocean alone—some studies put it at 40 million pounds—it's a start.When adidas teamed up with Parley for the Oceans, a collaborative group concerned with protecting the world's oceans, one of the outcomes was a greater emphasis on upcycling. What on earth is upcycling We're glad you asked. Upcycling, a.k.a. creative reuse, is taking discarded material and reusing it in a way that creates a product of higher quality or value than the original. Read on for how that applies to these sandals.The adidas Women's Eezay Parley Flip-Flop Sandals are all about three types of sustainability:Parley YarnNatural CorkRecycled MaterialsParley YarnThe straps on these sandals are made with Parley yarn. This yarn is woven from recycled plastic ocean waste that has washed up on beaches and then is collected by a global Parley clean-up network. Discarded plastic is therefore upcycled into something useful, not just picked up to be deposited somewhere else.Natural CorkThe footbeds contain 100% natural cork, an amazing material that is actually the bark of the Cork Oak tree that grows in coastal regions of the Mediterranean. This bark regenerates itself and is harvested by hand once every nine years so it has a low carbon footprint.Recycled MaterialsRecycled EVA is used for their lightweight, cushioned midsoles, while the durable outsoles contain 11% recycled content.Inspired by ocean conservation, even the color of the straps takes its cue from the clear, turquoise-colored waters of the Maldives (often listed as some of the clearest on earth). Could the decision to own a pair of these sandals get any easier Hardly. We're betting you'll be as passionate about them as we are. Imported.
