Nike scrapped everything it knew about manufacturing to make this low-carbon sweatshirt

Adele Peters of Fast Company reports on Nike’s sustainability efforts.

The C3 Take
  • Nike is beginning to implement practices to reduce its carbon footprint.
  • The company has developed a new line called “Nike Forward” which uses recycled materials and minimal details to create products that can be easily repurposed or recycled.
  • The first Nike Forward product, a grey hoodie, is expected to be released in the coming weeks which will be made with 70% recycled fabric and a carbon footprint that is 75% smaller than its traditional sweatshirts.

“The company has a history of other innovations to improve sustainability; when it pioneered the use of digital knitting to make sneakers, for example, the process cut waste by 60% compared to traditional sneaker manufacturing. But its customers want it to keep going further.”
