Nike recycled jerseys

The big story is in their manufacturing. Nike went to great lengths to keep their focus on “Considered Design” by producing each jersey from recycled plastic bottles. Eight plastic PVC bottles go into creating one jersey.The consumer jerseys (which do differ slightly from the player jerseys) also makes use of this tech. Each recycled poly jersey also includes unique printing on the inside near the heart reflecting a personal message for each nation.
