Sportswear giant Adidas has collaborated with National Hockey League (NHL) in order to develop league’s first ever hockey jerseys made out of recycled materials.
As part of the ongoing collaboration between the sportswear giant and Parley for the Oceans, an organization addressing major threats towards oceans, the duo have incorporated fibres derived from marine plastic scrap such as bottles, into the designs.
Dan Near, Senior Director of Adidas Hockey, said, “This initiative continues Adidas’ commitment to bring the brand’s biggest initiatives to the sport of hockey. The introduction of Parley into the Adizero Authentic NHL jerseys had led them to create “the first-ever environmentally-conscious hockey jerseys.”
It is worth noting that the new collection Adizero Authentic Pro x Parley kits will be worn by the NHL players for the very first time on 25th January. The company will retail the merchandise for US $ 200 which will be available on both Adidas and NHL websites.
