Real Madrid's Dreamy New Third Kit Is Made From Recycled Ocean Plastic

Real Madrid’s wonderful new third kit is not only easy on the eye, but its materials are also environmentally friendly.

The Champions League winners’ coral pink alternate strip was officially launched in New York today as part of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

And the Adidas-manufactured kit is doing its bit for the earth as it is mass-produced from Parley Ocean Plastic, who have a mission to rid polluted plastic from our oceans. Moreover, different shades of coral on the shirt also act as a tribute to the oceans that require our careful protection.

Cyrill Gutsch, found of Parley For The Oceans, could not overstate the importance of having Los Blancos onboard for their initiative.

“Real Madrid has the power to amplify our message, to share it with their massive global following and to bring it to life with their own decisions and actions.

“The message is an urgent one. It addresses the survival of four oceans, of four own species. It addresses the massive problem of marine plastic pollution. It questions the material itself and defines plastic as a prime example of a toxic substance which we can’t afford anymore.

Karim Benzema, Lucas Vasquez, Marcelo and Nacho Fernandez are all front and centre in the kit’s photoshoot, with the strip to be worn for the first time in the upcoming friendly against AS Roma at MetLife Stadium on Tuesday night.
