World Ocean’s Day is Saturday, June 8 and it’s a day to celebrate one of my very favorite things in this world. I grew up right down the street from the beach and returned to my childhood home five years ago. The beach has always had a special place in my heart, and I know it always will.
Our oceans and beaches are such beautiful places that it pains me to see them littered with trash and single-use plastics. I am always that lady at the beach picking up trash when we go, but it can get frustrating to see it replaced with even more and that’s why I’m SO excited about companies that are producing products that will help reduce plastic waste in our environment that finds its way into our oceans and onto our beaches..
Parley is one such company that adidas has partnered with and they have created some BEAUTIFUL high-performance sportswear that is made with Parley Ocean Plastic™. This product uses plastics removed from beaches and coastal communities. It’s prominently featured in their tennis line which I LOVE. How cute are this ombre Parley Tank and Parley skirt?!
After a workout this week, I zipped down the street to the beach to take some pictures of the plastics and other waste that I inevitably find on every trip down there. While the trash is a sad sight to see, I do love my adidas Small Studio Bag designed by Stella McCartney! It’s the perfect size for quick trips to the gym and even has a laptop sleeve. It has a smooth matte finish and I love the fun animal print around the top zipper. As a lover of handbags and bags, I was super excited to add this one to my collection!
So the next time you’re on the beach or in a coastal community, grab an extra bag and pick up plastics and other waste lying around so they don’t end up in our oceans! You can also support companies like Parley that repurpose plastics into other items like sportswear!
