There’s no doubt that sustainability and ethical practices are at the forefront of brands and shoppers minds at the moment. With the fashion industry said to be one of the most polluting industries, people want alternatives to harmful fast fashion cycles which are damaging our earth.

Nike has been making moves to become more sustainable in its practices: Nike Grind materials are already used in 71% of Nike’s footwear and apparel products, with three quarters of Nike Products containing some recycled material. With sustainability top of the agenda, it’s not surprising that Nike has announced the release of a Sustainability collection.

The Sustainability Collection comes in 3 parts:

The Nike Plant Colour Collection – an assortment of pastel-coloured hues paint the canvas uppers of the Nike Air Max 95 and the Nike Blazer Low
