Warwickshire County Cricket Club and kit suppliers PlayerLayer have unveiled the new T20 shirt, which is believed to be the most sustainable cricket shirt created to date.
Due to be worn by Birmingham Bears in the 2020 and 2021 Vitality Blast campaigns, the new new-look shirts are manufactured from a sustainable material formed of a 50 percent mix of bamboo and charcoal, with polyester, to significantly reduce the use of plastics.
The material was first used in football as part of PlayerLayer’s partnership with Forest Green Rovers, which is renowned for being the world’s greenest football club. The Bears are the first to use the material in cricket as part of the Club’s ambitions to be the most sustainable cricket club and venue in the country.
The new Bears T20 playing shirt is now available to order online at Store ’94, with adult and children’s replica shirts available.
