Transcript of Carbon Footprint

Carbon Footprint Designed By: A main aspect in the making of Adidas shoes is the rubber sole. Next the laces that hold the shoe in place. Another material used in the making of Adidas shoes is the leather used to make the body of the shoe. The final material used is industrial dye used for colouring the shoe. What it takes to make Adidas shoes: Yes, the production of Adidas shoes cause the release of these deadly greenhouse gasses due to the factory surplus manufacturing. These shoes are made in China and surrounding areas so they have to be shipped to North America and Europe for distribution. These long distance flights and ship rides cause the excess burning of fossil fuels, thus resulting in the increase of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. Finally this process uses energy to be manufactured, shipped and produced, causing an all around surplus release of green house gasses. Did the production cause the release of green
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.
