Climate Change Design & Recycled Materials

Reading FC has designed a new kit that represents climate change. The striped design presents average global temperatures increasing over time. Each stripe on the shirts shows a year’s average temperature since the club was founded in 1871. Blue and red are used, with blue showing cold temperatures and red hot. From the design, you can see the prominent red used in most recent years to present the impact of climate change.

The Football Kit Material

The kit is also created using recycled materials to push their sustainable mission. Specifically recycled bottles are used in production, with the kit being recyclable again in the future. Approximately 13-and-a-half plastic litre bottles produces enough polyester yarn to make one of the shirts. This is effective in pushing recycling of plastic and reducing waste polluting our planet.

How This Will Help Reduce Plastic Waste

Reading FC have shared the support to increase conversations surrounding climate change and inspire people to make a change. Whilst the team can push their supporters to do more, they are also working hard to reduce their carbon footprint and make a difference. 

Tim Kilpatrick, The Club’s Head Of Commercial Says:

“I hope the design would inspire more climate conversations amongst fans. We are not perfect, but this is the start of a journey. We will not aim to change the world overnight.”
