Brazil, Portugal and the Netherlands wore shirts made of recycled plastic bottles during this year's World Cup. The Nike shirts were 100 per cent recycled and cost £50 - the same price as non-recycled shirts.
But the trend is continuing beyond the World Cup and Arsenal is the latest team to don the recycled kit. Nike produced the kit under its ‘Considered Design’ program. The shirts and shorts are made from recycled polyester made from plastic bottles discarded in Japan and Taiwan.
