“We last year sold 1 million shoes made out of ocean plastic,” Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted told CNBC in a TV interview.

Adidas expects another year of profit but at a slower pace than 2017. 

In 2016, Real Madrid wore kits made out of plastic bottles intercepted in Maldives oceans against Sporting Gijon.
