PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS
Parley is an environmental organization, which fights plastic pollution in the ocean by creative collaborations. We have established a wide network of scientists, researchers, activists, artists and designers and work together on projects which will close the loop of plastic pollution by promoting recycled plastic instead of virgin plastics.
We have created Parley Ocean Plastic, an innovative material made from ocean waste, intercepted by the Parley Global Cleanup Network.
Our latest collaboration is with adidas and we created a high-performance sportswear shoe, which upper part is entirely made from recycled Parley Ocean Plastic. We aim to turn industry standards around by making it more lucrative for brands to intercept and use ocean plastic than by throwing it away. We want to show people that the plastic waste in the oceans can be used for a wide range of cool products: http://www.adidas.com/us/parley
We also hold several Parley Talks throughout the year, which are events and collaboration sessions to discuss new projects with high-profile guests:
Our closest partners among others include artist Julian Schnabel, Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd and marine researcher Sylvia Earle.
