Who says a sport is only about playing? It’s a matter of style and comfort too. But with eco-friendly uniform for the US Women’s Soccer Team, Nike has added a third element to this style list. If Nike’s claim is to go by, this is the most environment friendly uniform till now. These eco-friendly uniforms are made up of recycled polyester.
Each jersey is made up of at least eight recycled plastic bottles. These bottles are melted and later on converted into fabric from which the uniforms are made. This process is quite different from the one that involves making of virgin polyester. This process saves on the raw material. Plus, the energy consumption in this process is about 30 per cent less than needed in making of virgin polyester. These uniforms are at least 15 percent lighter than the previous kits. They have their own benefits for the players too who’ll feel far more comfortable and cool in this summer friendly uniform.
These uniforms were unveiled recently in a friendly match against Japan. The jerseys have two classic colors, white and black. The color and style is capturing. The black uniform contains red piping pattern that makes it look really hot. While the white one looks alluring too. However, those who had been trying hard to see the glamor quotient on the field going up may be a little disappointed. Though these jerseys have wonderful silhouette there is less scope for skin show. So guys, concentrate on the game while the players give their best on the ground.
