The NBA regular season is officially over, and the playoffs are almost upon us. MVP frontrunner James Harden and the #1 seed Houston Rockets are preparing to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves … and it wouldn’t be a reach to imagine that Timberwolves defenders are having nightmares thinking about how they’re going to stop Harden, who averaged a whopping 30.4 PPG during the regular season. The fear Harden’s defenders surely experience before guarding the bearded dynamo provide the inspiration for the newest colorway of Harden’s signature adidas silhouette, the “Nightmare” Harden Vol. 2. The sneaker features a blacked-out aesthetic with contrast coming via silver detailing on the toebox, laces, and three stripes graphic. If you want to get your hands on this nightmarish colorway, you can call 1 (800) 613-4862 to “stop the nightmares” and buy a pair, or if you’re into more simple methods you can grab the Harden Vol.2 on adidas.com now, and in stores April 14th.

Many scientists, however, fear that a portion of the recovered plastic will go back to the sea.Mark Browne, a researcher in the National Center of Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara, California, states recycled microfibers in attire can shed from the washing machine, wind up in drains, and return to the ocean.In a 2011 newspaper, Browne wrote that only one synthetic garment could slough off more than 1,900 fibers each wash. His team analyzed fresh and marine water websites around the world and found microfibers in every sample. In fact, 85% of those human-made substance they found were microfibers.If Adidas goal is really to address ocean plastics pollution, this isn’t a particularly successful tacticit is challenging to accumulate plastic without harming ocean life and even more challenging to use these recovered materials to make new goods, stated Darby Hoover, senior resource specialist in the National Resources Defense Council. They should keep plastic out of the sea in the first place by promoting recycling and requiring recycled materials be found in all their products.Are we perfect? No, far from, Adidas Group CEO Herbert Hainer wrote in the companys 2014 Sustainability Progress Report. We face constantly fresh, industry-wide challenges. But we handle these challenges and try to improve.Even if trying to recycle microfibers isnt the ideal solution, the need to reduce plastic from the marine environment is unquestionable.
