The Adidas x Parley 2018 edition of the 23 jerseys comes in two colorways, non-dye and carbon, differentiating the two teams in each game.
“In partnership with adidas, we’re excited to bring the MLS Parley kits to all 23 clubs as part of this season’s MLS WORKS Greener Goals initiative,” said JoAnn Neale, Chief Administrative & Social Responsibility Officer for Major League Soccer. “MLS is committed to reducing our carbon footprint and raising awareness about environmental issues, including plastic pollution. We’re proud to support Parley for the Oceans and encourage the soccer community to create a cleaner, healthier environment.”
The Adidas Parley jerseys are built from built of technical yarns made using Parley Ocean Plastic. The original plastic source is reworked into technical fibers that can then be repurposed for use in either apparel or footwear. To commemorate this unique process of repurposing plastic debris, the message “For the Oceans” is featured in the inside of the neck tape detailing, and each club’s name is featured on the back-neck.
“We are proud to continue to build upon our collaborative efforts with MLS and Parley for the Oceans to inspire creative solutions for protecting the world’s oceans,” said Ernesto Bruce, Sr. Director of adidas Soccer. “We believe in the innovative partnership we have forged and hope that these kits made using Parley Ocean Plastic inspire the soccer community to join us in preserving our precious environment.”
Limited editions of the Adidas x Parley MLS 2018 jerseys are available online. The jerseys are then shipped in recyclable envelopes. The kits of many teams are already sold out.
