Team USA’s Basketball Jerseys Are Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles; Our Recyclable Litter at Work.

Nike has announced the the 2012 iteration of Team USA’s basketball jerseys for the Olympic Games in London would be made of 96% recycled polyester, making them the lightest jerseys Nike ever made. Additionally, the shorts will be 100% recycled polyester and only weight 5 ounces. Nike verifies that each jersey is made from 22 recycled plastic bottles to create the breathable polyester fabric the jerseys are made of. Pretty snazzy-looking, don’t you think? It may be more successful than the NBA experiment with the synthetic basketball.
