In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a video and do a listening exercise on the sportswear company Adidas and how they're turning plastic ocean waste into shoes. It includes discussion questions, conversation, and other activities about recycling, upcycling, and plastic waste. Students learn some important vocabulary words, phrases, and expressions from the video. The grammar activity features the difference between 'by + time' and 'until + time'. There is a quiz and review with a bonus activity included.
In 2015 Adidas partnered with Parley for the Oceans to turn marine pollution like plastic bottles into shoes and sportswear.
