World Cup : football shirts go green

It’s now the turn of the world of football to become conscious of the need to preserve our environment.

Nike has made the first green move in creating shirts made entirely of recycled polyester, manufactured from plastic bottles recovered from Japanese and Taiwanese dumps.
It takes about eight recycled plastic bottles to make one shirt, and in this way Nike is preventing the dumping of 13 million bottles, i.e. about 255,000 kg of waste.
And these shirts are not of poor quality either - they offer better ventilation for the body, allowing players to keep dry.

Nine national teams, and not just any teams: Brazil, the Netherlands, Portugal, the USA, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Slovenia and Serbia  will have the chance to wear these new “green” shirts.
