Adidas Created Earth Day Soccer Jerseys Made From ‘Upcycled’ Plastic Ocean Waste
All 23 MLS teams will wear them for a weekend
Adidas has announced its game plan for Earth Day this year, and the brand hopes it will have soccer fans, players and ocean conservationists alike screaming GOOOOOOOOOOAL!
Parley for the Oceans, a creative force dedicated to protecting the oceans, and Adidas are partnering to “upcycle” plastic reclaimed from ocean waste into limited-edition Major League Soccer uniforms that will be worn by all 23 MLS teams over Earth Day weekend, Friday, April 20, through Sunday, April 22. This effort ties in neatly with the official Earth Day campaign of 2018, “A World Without Plastic Pollution.”
The jerseys, each made from 13 recycled plastic bottles, will be available for purchase on the Adidas and MLS online stores.
