Soccer Players Donning Shirt Made from Plastic Debris

Last Saturday, in their match against TSG Hoffenheim, the players of German soccer club Bayern München, Munich, were wearing shirts made of recycled ocean waste. Club partner adidas developed the adidas x Parley FC Bayern München shirt which is entirely made of Ocean Plastic, fibers from recycled plastic found in coastal areas of the Maledives.

"I'm a child of the beaches of Spain, so I'm really happy to wear a shirt entirely made of recycled ocean waste. It's a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the oceans," said Bayern pro Xabi Alonso, who presented the new shirt on the eve of the Hoffenheim match. The deliberately 'clean' design of the shirt reflects the Parley message: the collar logo is "For the oceans," the club logo and the three adidas stripes are integrated in red using a special eco-friendly process.

FC Bayern main partner Telekom supports the campaign and waived the full visibility of the logos in favor of a tone on tone variant. The German Football League (DFL) and its partner Hermes also support this one-off campaign and waived the visibility of the sleeve logos, which were in tonal colors too.

Parley for the Oceans is an organization of creators, thinkers and leaders. Their goal is to raise awareness about the condition of our oceans and to launch projects to protect and preserve the oceans. adidas, co-founder of Parley for the Oceans, supports the organization in terms of education and communication as well as their "Ocean Plastic Programme" to put an end to the pollution of the seas. In cooperation with Parley, adidas develops methods to make premium yarns and fibers from plastic waste.
