adidas announces its PLAY GREEN Collection
made and designed with the environment in mind
Trees, plants, and grass are just a few of the verdant contributors that give golf courses their natural beauty, personality, and character. In the same way, golfers everywhere are encouraged to do their part to respect the courses they play; adidas are doing its part as a brand to respect the world we live in by making products with recycled materials. One of the ways its doing that is with this PLAY GREEN Collection, made for golfers and designed with the environment in mind.
Even though more than 90 per cent of our apparel in adidas's spring/summer range is made in part with recycled materials, the brand wanted to make a special collection to inspire others to join it on a journey to help End Plastic Waste.
This PLAY GREEN Collection – comprised of polos, t-shirts, and hats – brings versatile style and performance through products made in part with recycled materials. The goal is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled polyester in adidas products by 2024 wherever possible.
“It’s always our objective to make products for golfers that perform, but we never lose sight of the need to do so in a more sustainable way.
"PLAY GREEN is a collection where we feature designs inspired by the natural beauty that’s unique to golf, but all on a canvas comprised of materials that are better for the environment.”
Shaun Madigan, global director of apparel, adidas Golf
The colours from the PLAY GREEN Collection were also specifically curated based on the familiar scenes and landscapes that golfers encounter over the course of their rounds.
The Spray-Dyed Polo, for example, features colours inspired by the vibrant greens of the fairways, brushed whites of the clouds, contrasted whites and browns of the bunkers, and the dark blues of the ocean and waters often found around the course.
