100% ocean recycled kit to be worn for one game

Real Madrid will wear kits manufactured from entirely recycled ocean-dumped plastic, later this month.

Adidas' partnership with ocean conservation group Parley- who run clean-up operations off the coast of Maldives has led to the initiative, in order to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans against pollution.

The Whites will wear the strip on November 26 against Sporting Gijon in La Liga.

Vice-Captain Marcelo promoted the story via his instagram account and said: "The Ocean is a place I hold close to my heart after growing up in Rio de Janeiro and I have fond memories of playing on the beach when I was a kid.

"It’s amazing to be part of this project and to know that the club I love is making a difference in helping to keep the oceans clean.”

Real Madrid’s shirt is all white with monochromatic logos.
