A BETTER FOOTBALL SHIRT 2018


In 2018 there will be the 21 st FIFA Football (Soccer) World Cup being held in Russia.
No doubt all of the leading sportswear brands will be supplying teams with polyester kit that shed thousands of plastic microfibres when washed.

A single wash of an average size machine load (6 kg) of polyester can shed 496,030 microfibres, according to research by Plymouth University. Just imagine how many ocean polluting plastic microfibres are shed during the entire season? There must be a better football shirt?
We are calling out to fashion schools, individual designers and organisations / brands that represent particular fibres to create 'a better football shirt'. A better football shirt for the player and the environment.
And where former and present professional footballers can judge the submitted designs for 'a better football shirt'.#abetterfootballshirt

MODERN SPORTSWEAR


When discussing sportswear you are really talking about polyester. An established sports brand using 120 kg of polyester (including recycled polyester) annually, will shed from washing their garments once a week; 728 million plastic microfibres per year.
This simple calculation undermines any statements that sportswear brands are sustainable.
Microfibres are the biggest ocean polluting issue you've never heard of.

SAVE THE K SIGNATURE BALL


Can the K-signature ball be saved? This tour spec ball at $15 per doz was great for consumers but bad news for the business models of OEM's.
Could someone (group) place a large order for these balls with Nassau and supply again via another retailer? Golf Refugees have a quote from the manufacturer, we will see if this quote is still valid.

There could be other manufacturers who produce a tour-spec 3 / 4 - piece ball. MyGolf Spy could ask and test these to see which is best and comparable to the performance of the Korean Nassau / Kirkland ball.
Our idea would be for a 'consumer ball'. Where the packaging could depict images from people who place orders.
