Nike football kits kick out carbon

Nike football kits kick out carbon

This season’s Nike football kits tackle plastic waste and score low for carbon emissions.

The sports brand's new football shirts are made with 95% recycled plastic water bottles, which it claims reduces the carbon emissions of the shirts by up to 30%.

The teams that will be wearing these recycled kits this season include Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk commented: “Being part of the Swoosh family for years, they’ve been at the forefront of sustainable design and it goes a long way into making our sport a greener one.”
