WORLD'S FIRST VEGAN SOCCER TEAM SWITCHES TO SUSTAINABLE BAMBOO UNIFORMS 07/15/2019

For the next two seasons, United Kingdom's vegan soccer club Forest Green Rovers will wear new vegan uniforms made by sports clothing brand PlayLayer from 50-percent bamboo—highly reducing the amount of plastic typically used in uniforms. The design of the new uniforms was inspired by the camouflage pattern of the zebra and features a logo from its charity partner, ocean conservation organization Sea Shepherd, on the back of the jersey, and the logo of its milk partner, vegan brand Oatly, on the back of the shorts. Forest Green Rovers Chairman Dale Vince—who is also the CEO of vegan electricity company Ecotricity—purchased the club in 2011 and began renovations to create the most sustainable team and stadium in the world. In 2015, the club removed all animal products to become the world's first vegan stadium and serves vegan food such as Quorn meat alternatives, pizzas, and burgers. The team will launch a third uniform next month in tribute to Sea Shepard and as part of a fundraising initiative for the vegan organization (vegnews.com)
