Nike Embraces Sustainability With ‘Move to Zero’ Clothing Line
As part of Nike’s Move to Zero journey—the company’s comprehensive efforts toward a zero-carbon and zero-waste future—the new Move to Zero apparel collection represents Nike’s commitment to circular design principals. Applying a sustainability mindset to Nike classic apparel pieces, the capsule blends recycled polyester with sustainable cotton, uses an innovative dyeing technology and all products meet a 90 per cent or better pattern efficiency.
A new, unlined Nike Sportswear Windrunner jacket features 100 per cent recycled polyester plain weave fabrication. The drawcords and zippers made from Nike Grind—a palette of premium materials (rubber, foam, fibre, leather and textile blends) recovered in the footwear manufacturing and recycling process — accentuate the collection’s statement as a roadmap toward a zero-carbon and zero-waste future.
The Nike Sportswear full-zip hoodie, crew, T-shirt, joggers and shorts are men’s wardrobe staples redesigned with sustainability top of mind. The pieces provide all-day comfort and a casual style, while each includes a mix of at least 60 per cent organic and recycled fabrics using new manufacturing methods meant to reduce waste.
The women’s Move to Zero dress, shorts and crew pieces deliver ultimate comfort and feature a mix of at least 60 per cent organic and recycled fabrics. The organic cotton in the Move to Zero collection uses less water and fewer chemicals, improves farming practices and provides quality that is the same or better compared to conventionally grown cotton.
The collection is available on nike.com this summer.
