The LA Galaxy are in the process of trying to be more environmentally friendly. The Galaxy have collaborated with Adidas, Major League Soccer and Parley for the Oceans to create jerseys to raise awareness of the negative impact of marine plastic pollution.
The gear is being made of special yarns that contain Parley Ocean plastic. They will be worn on Sunday when the Galaxy host the Seattle Sounders at StubHub Center. Game time is at 1 pm Pacific Time.
The Galaxy's partnership with Adidas, MLS, and Parley for the Oceans is part of a large environmental initiative. StubHub Center also is home to a greenhouse, beehives, LED lights that have 60% less energy. There are also waterless urinals and the team irrigates fields with 50% recycled water.
In Sunday's game, TreePeople will be the community partner of the match. The organization encourages the people of Los Angeles to plant and care for trees.
On the pitch, the Galaxy have begun the 2017 Major League Soccer season with a record of two wins and four losses. In their last game, the Galaxy lost 2-1 to Orlando City.
