Transcript of Carbon Footprint
house gasses? Andrew Ivany and Adam Fitzgerald Our carbon footprint assignment is based on the Adidas footwear company. Production of Adidas' materials! Adidas uses both synthetic and natural rubbers in the manufacturing of their shoes. Artificial rubber is made from petroleum. Petroleum contains many carbon molecules. The natural rubbers are made from the latex, from the milk of some trees. Second, Adidas uses laces to make their product complete. These laces are made from woven wool, this is the most climate friendly step of their production. Another product used to manufacture the shoe is is dye. This is manufactured from paint and other harmful chemicals that release greenhouse gasses damaging the ozone layer when being created. The final product used to make the shoe is the leather. Some of this leather is synthetic, but most of it is taken from cows skin and muscles. Adidas Shoes: More Climate Friendly: There are many ways that Adidas footwear could become more climate friendly, such as:
-They could ship a bigger load at a time, thus cutting down on the pollution.
-Manufacture in different ways so there is less greenhouse gasses being released.
-They could use more eco friendly shipping routes even if they are less efficient.
-They could use more eco friendly materials in manufacturing such as instead of using tree milk to make rubber use a synthetic rubber instead.
-They could recycle materials such as rubber leftover from shaping the sole or the extra wool used to make the laces.
