Who knew that the word “kit” could have so many different meanings? Or that a “kit” could accomplish so many different purposes? Recently, I discovered a meaning for this little word that was completely new to me.
Did you know that “kit” can refer to uniforms worn by soccer players (aka “association football” in most other parts of the world). The reason I even know this is because it’s been in the news lately that some of these teams are wearing kits created entirely from ocean plastic!
It’s great to see such prestigious sports teams helping to create awareness about the worldwide problem of plastic pollution. On this side of the pond, The University of Miami’s football team, the Hurricanes, also have new uniforms made from recycled ocean plastic. And the Chicago White Sox recently became the first major league baseball team to ban plastic straws!
