By embracing the challenge of working beyond finite natural resources, we are pushing the limits of creativity and design. This is already being done with mindful innovations. The Nike Plant Color collection uses plant-based dye, the new VaporMax2 Random uses excess Flyknit yarn for its upper, and Flyleather uses at least 50 percent recycled natural leather.
Additionally, all Nike football kits are made from recycled bottles. Nike products like this have diverted more than six billion plastic bottles from landfills since 2010. Now, more than one billion plastic bottles are recycled into new Nike products per year. We’ve also been the top user of recycled polyester in the textile and apparel industry for five years in a row.
