The Kid Should See This

Turning plastic bottles into football jerseys

This Nike Better World promo video from 2012 shares the manufacturing process of how plastic bottles can turn into “the most advanced football jerseys on the planet.” (And by the way, that’s soccer/football, not American football.)

There are some excellent vids about plastics and sports in the archives.
