Nike innovates and Mother Nature smiles.
Aside from recycling bins, not much "green" happens in tennis so I was excited to hear news of Nike's ColorDry polo. The performance tennis shirt is made of 96% recycled polyester (sourced from 11 recycled plastic bottles each) and comes in four colors. See the blue one below on Nick Kyrgios.
The earth friendly shirt is is also dyed without using water. According to Nike, "It takes 30 liters of water – the equivalent amount in 60 plastic water bottles - to dye a T-shirt using traditional dyeing methods. Nike ColorDry technology dyes fabric using zero water, while also saving energy and eliminating the need for added chemicals in the fabric dyeing process."
The new ColorDry polo becomes another feather in the cap of a brand that has diverted the equivalent of more than two billion bottles from landfills and into product through sustainable innovations.
