Recycled jersey by NIKE


Kudos Nike!

Nike has come up with a novel idea of making jersey from recycled plastic bottle and close to ten Nike sponsored teams i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Serbia Netherlands, Portugal, United States, South Korea and Slovenia, will don this jersey for the world cup matches starting tonight. This is a timely and clever move by Nike, to make world cup a platform to display their environmental and social obligations.

Anyway! Information from net says that, this move by Nike will help stopping 250000 kgs of polyster waste being dumped on land.

Once again Great Job Nike for adopting Go Green policies!

Hi there,

Its been a while since my last visit. Hope you have been well? This is interesting and a great idea by Nike. Now I wonder whether the jerseys can be disposed of safely whenever they wear out...

Have a blessed week!

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
