Adidas is going green.

The sportswear company says it's planning to use only recycled plastics by the year 2024.

Adidas has announced that it will eliminate the use of so-called "virgin" plastic, including polyester.

That includes the use of those plastics in its offices, retail outlets, warehouses and distribution centers.

The global use of plastic has increased 20-fold over the past 50 years.

Just 14-percent is collected for recycling.
