Adidas made a Football Field from 1.8 million Plastic Bottles
Closed

According to CNN, the company made turf from plastic bottles that were found on beaches and coastal communities, according to CNN.

James Carney, vice president of global brand strategy for Adidas, told CNN that the goal of using the plastic was to prevent it from entering the ocean as pollution. Typically, a new turf field would be constructed with virgin plastics and rubber. This field used the recycled plastics as infill, a critical component of the field. Infill cushions players as they use the field.
Cameron Collins, the North American director of football at Adidas, said in a statement, “We believe that through sport we have the power to change lives, and this field is a demonstration of our taking action on that belief. More than a place for these young athletes to play, it’s a reminder of our collective responsibility to end plastic waste.”

The field was donated to Miami Edison High School, a short drive from the stadium where Super Bowl LIV was held.
