The Galician club will be the first soccer team in the world to wear a sustainable collection with yarn generated from the waste found in the bottom of the sea.
RC Deportivo and ECOALF join forces to clean the waste found in the bottom of the sea and transform it into fabric to create their uniforms.
The collection for the soccer team is made of navy blue jackets, dark reversible blazers, casual sweaters (navy and grey), white shirts and chino pants in a light color.
As well as the iconic California sneakers, a casual and simple sportswear collection perfect for their free time.
ECOALF´s, through its Upcycling the Oceans Project, main objective is to recover the marine waste from the bottom of the sea thanks to the support of the fishermen, and convert it into top quality yarn. Currently this project operates with the ECOALF Foundation and Ecoembes (Spanish non-profit organization) and is present in 32 ports with over 2,000 fishermen across Spain, collecting approx. 150 tons of marine debris per year. In 2017 it’s replicated in Thailand, and today the project arrives to the A Coruña port, pioneering the Atlantic Ocean. Through the ocean, RC Deportivo raises a compromise to sustainability and partners with ECOALF to dress their soccer players, thanks to the Upcycling the Oceans project.
