Sportswear retailer Nike has unveiled Netherlands’s new Away National Team Kit just in time for the London Olympic Games. The soccer jerseys, made of 100% recycled materials, is one of the most eco-friendly sportswear lines to date, in keeping with the brand’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact. Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles and weighs 23% less than jerseys used at the Games four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool more quickly than before.
