THE TRUTH ABOUT NIKE AND ADIDAS

More than 25 billion pairs of shoes are manufactured every year – that’s three per person in the world. If the trainer industry was a country, it would be the world’s 17th largest polluter – just above Italy. But you wouldn’t know that from looking at the websites of the big brands, which are full of claims about sustainability. Self-confessed sneaker head Darcy Thomas investigates the truth about our trainers, traveling to the Maldives to see what’s really going on.

The Truth About Nike and Adidas has been nominated for the BAFTA Scotland News and Current Affairs award.
