​Ocean’s XI: Bayern To Wear Kit Made  From Recycled Sea  Plastic 

Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso has spoken of his pride at the unveiling of Bundesliga club’s commitment to environmental awareness
Bayern Munich will wear a special kit made entirely of recycled plastic recovered from the ocean in Saturday’s Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim.

The one-off strip, which was unveiled on Friday, has been manufactured from so-called Ocean Plastic – fibres produced from recycled plastic material collected from coastal areas around the Maldives.

It is hoped that the kit, which Bayern state was produced in an “eco-friendly process”, will raise awareness of the Parley for the Oceans campaign – co-founded by the club’s primary kit manufacturer, Adidas – that is seeking to end pollution of the world’s waters.

“I’m a child of the beaches of Spain, so I’m really happy to wear a shirt entirely made of recycled ocean waste. It’s a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the oceans,” said midfielder Xabi Alonso.

Bayern are looking for a third win in a row to consolidate their place at the top of the Bundesliga, although third-placed Hoffenheim are still unbeaten after nine games.
