Everton FC unveils new kit fashioned from recycled bottles
The popular English Premier League football club Everton FC is all set to woo its fans with its new home kit that comes with a green touch. The Club has unveiled its new 2013/14 home kit, which is fashioned from polyester made from recycled water bottles. The new Nike kit is a result of the company effort to keeps its impact on the environment as low as possible.
Weighing mere 150 grams (23 per cent lighter than previous kits), the Blues’ new home kit features a shirt and shorts made from up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles. The royal blue body with a white collar and sleeves with white hoops makes for a trendy shirt. In order to keep the players dry and sweat free during a game, Nike has used its unique Dri-Fit technology.
The manufacture claims that the new kit is a 20 per cent stronger knit and considerably more stretchable. Since 2010, Nike has saved the environment from 1.1 billion waste plastic bottles by using recycled polyester. This amazing eco friendly home kit is now available online at evertondirect.com or in store at Everton One or Everton Two.
