manchester united reveal new third kit made from parley ocean plastic
Inspired by the 50 th anniversary of Manchester United\'s first European Cup win in history, the navy blue jersey draws inspiration from the royal blue jersey worn by Sir Matt Busby in the May 1968 Wembley victory over Benfica.
It was produced in collaboration with Parley for Oceans, the global collaborative network and the movement, which is committed to ending today\'s major marine threats with creative, multi-disciplinary environmental approaches.
In addition to creating awareness of plastic issues in our oceans, Adidas and Pali also make footwear and clothing from recycled plastic waste intercepted from the coastline, beaches and coastal communities.
Manchester United manager Richard Arnold said: \"It\'s great to be able to celebrate the 50 th anniversary of the club\'s first European Cup win.
This shirt represents an important moment for our club.
When we became the first English team to win the game.
Adidas continues to show how to move forward
They believe they have established a strategic partnership with Parry.
We are all well aware of the environmental threat of plastic and we are happy to be able to raise awareness through this recycling kit and I am sure fans will like it.
\"The third set of jerseys will debut in Manchester United\'s summer tour in the United States.
In 2017, Sky launched a marine rescue campaign to focus on ocean health and inspire people to make small, everyday changes that together have a huge impact.
The Passon plastic initiative is part of the campaign and the Premier League has now joined Sky, promising to be single
Free plastic before 2020.
