The bottom line is: due to the fact that the sneakers can be completely recycled, the old pair must be returned to Adidas, so that you can make new ones. Something like a subscription to sneakers, but no extra waste is created. Top!
Refusing plastic waste is the first step, but not the only one. What happens to shoes when they wear out? You throw it away because there is no other way.

We want to make sure that you can wear the same shoes again and again.
