In an effort to bring awareness to ocean pollution, two soccer powerhouses are wearing jerseys made from plastic found in the ocean for one game, each, in November. Adidas and the ocean-protection organization Parley have teamed up to produce the jerseys for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich midfielder and Spanish national team veteran Xabi Alonso said, "Wearing a kit that is made from recyclable ocean waste is something I'm very happy about as it's a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about the need to protect and preserve our oceans. I know this is the start of something very special."
Bayern Munich wore theirs on November 5th against Hoffenheim. Real Madrid will wear theirs against Sporting Gijon on November 26th.
