The University of Miami and Adidas have unveiled the first-ever, special edition baseball jerseys utilising repurposed and upcycled materials created in partnership with Parley for the Oceans. The new ocean-inspired baseball uniforms are set to raise awareness of marine plastic pollution and champion the Parley AIR Strategy cause (Avoid, Intercept, Redesign).

The new baseball uniforms were debuted at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field when the Hurricanes took on Virginia Tech on April 26. Spinning threat into thread, the Adidas x Parley partnership gives new purpose to plastic waste by reworking the captured pollution into Parley Ocean Plastic, a range of materials made from upcycled marine plastic debris intercepted on beaches and in coastal communities, to create the Adidas x Parley Miami baseball uniforms, said Adidas in a media statement.

Crafted with the environment in mind and engineered for elite performance, the baseball jerseys featured 100 per cent recycled polyester mesh. The result was a durable yet breathable jersey material that adheres to the drags, sprints and swings necessary for a player’s optimal movement. In addition to the eco-innovative construction, the Hurricanes’ trademark collegiate orange and dark green jerseys were highlighted with the ‘Miami’ wordmark and player numbers that utilised 100 per cent recycled twill embroidered with a dark green thread.

Adidas is committed to increasing the use of eco-innovative materials such as Parley Ocean Plastic and regenerated Econyl yarn in its products as a replacement for virgin plastic and a symbol and catalyst for longer-term change. (PC)
