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)
