Nike launched its Move to Zero campaign in 2010 to progress toward zero carbon and zero waste at all levels of its production. Now, Nike is unveiling its sustainability-focused 2020 Olympic uniforms and a corresponding Move to Zero line.
At the 2020 Summer Olympics, top athletes will be receiving medals made from recycled materials and Nike is following suit by introducing some of its lowest-impact apparel and footwear ever. The iconic Windrunner jacket has been reimagined with 100% recycled polyester and a design that pays tribute to the traditional Japanese kimono. Additionally, the national team logo on the design stamped with recycled Nike Grind rubber.
Medalists will also be sporting Nike's iconic Vapormax style, which is made with a high percentage of recycled manufacturing waste.
