Comments Off on Adidas unveils a Manchester United jersey created with ocean plastic

Ocean plastic just got a flashy new awareness effort—in Manchester United Football Club jerseys. Adidas  has teamed up with Parley for the Oceans to release a kit utilizing recycled ocean plastic and inspired by the team’s 1968 European Cup Final win. Manchester United director Richard Arnold said in a statement, “We are all acutely aware of the threat of plastic to the environment and we are delighted to be able to raise further awareness with this recycled kit, which I am sure the fans will love.” Manchester United’s third kit features a navy blue shirt adorned with gold detailing from Parley for the Oceans and Adidas . It’s a throwback to the team’s 1968 royal blue kit in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its European Cup victory. But the blue also calls to mind the world’s oceans , which are plagued by plastic pollution . Adidas Category Product Director Oliver Nicklisch said, “We all need to change the way we think and act towards our oceans…By working with Manchester United to create new, stunning jerseys made with Parley Ocean Plastic, we hope that we can highlight the issue of plastic damaging our oceans, and ultimately encourage and inspire football fans to join us in creating a better environment for everyone.” Players will don the kit for the first time on the field during Manchester United’s summer tour in the United States.

The apparel is available for purchase on Adidas’ website. The plastic upcycled in their clothing is sourced from beaches, coastal communities, and shorelines. + Parley for the Oceans + Adidas + Adidas x Parley + Manchester United Football Club Images courtesy of Adidas and Parley for the Oceans

Comments Off on Zaha Hadid Architects to build worlds greenest football stadium

As the centerpiece of the pastoral Eco Park , the Forest Green stadium will serve more than just a recreational purpose. The stadium will be built almost entirely of wood for a very low carbon footprint —ZHA says it will have the lowest embodied carbon of any stadium in the world—and pave the way for eco-friendly development in the 100-acre sports and green technology business park. The structure will also accommodate occupational uses outside of football to enable the town to use the stadium year-round. Related: Architects want to transform this football stadium into a giant wave pool “Forest Green Rovers’ new stadium and Eco Park aims to be carbon neutral or carbon negative, including measures such as the provision of on-site renewable energy generation,” said Jim Heverin, Director at ZHA. “The buildings on the site, and their embodied energy, play a substantial role in achieving this ambitious target and demonstrate sustainable architecture can be dynamic and beautiful.” All the timber will be sustainably sourced , from the roof cantilevers and louvered cladding to the seating terraces to the floor slab. A transparent membrane will cover the stadium’s roof to shade the players and spectators, and offer an opportunity for turf growth. + Zaha Hadid Architects Images via Zaha Hadid Architects

FIFA secretary general Jérôme Valcke took to Twitter to voice his frustration that the venue will not get a proper trial run before the June 12, 2014 opening event.
