As part of Team USA‘s 2020 “Medal Stand” collection, all the respective athletes that win a medal at the upcoming games will be wearing an outfit made from sustainable materials. This collection draws inspiration from the recycled matetials that make up the Tokyo medals. With that being said, the Nike Windrunner jacket will be crafted from 100% recycled polyester.
We shared Nike’s ‘Space Hippie’ collection yesterday in which the materials came from scraps off the factory floor, plastic bottles and other used materials. Nike is really focused on lowering their carbon footprint and they are leading the charge in sustainable production.
