Compost Daily - Goallll - Team USA & The World Cup

The World Cup has begun and other than celebrating our very own Team USA, we can also celebrate their jerseys. This World Cup, Nike has crafted a quality eco jersey made of 100% recycled materials; more specifically PET plastic bottles that were pulled from landfills.

In making team uniforms for USA and other countries, Nike re-purposed about 13 million bottles which would stretch a staggering 1,864 miles if lined up end to end.

Catch Team USA as they play Slovenia tomorrow at 9:30 am (EST) on ESPN.

Want one? Visit our friends at the Virginia Beach Premier Soccer for an official team jersey in white or navy.
