The League Two club, named by Fifa as the greenest in the world, will play their first game in the new lime and black tiger-striped kit on Saturday when they take on Colchester United.
The coffee-based fabric has been a top performer in initial tests and has been found to be lighter, breathable and more durable than the club’s current kit — which is also made of eco-friendly bamboo.
Forest Green’s environmental credentials include having a vegan menu at their ground in Nailsworth, Gloucs, and solar panels with electric charging points.
Proceeds from kit sales will be split between Gloucestershire NHS and charity One Tree Planted.
Club chairman Dale Vince said: “It’s time football wakes up and smells the coffee about the planet’s future.
“This prototype kit will bring new flavour to that old cliché of grinding out a result.”6The new prototype strip also contains recycled plastic 6Forest Green Rovers will play their first game in the new lime and black tiger-striped kit on Saturday Most read in FootballLive BlogTIGER LATESTGolf icon injured after being pulled from car crash - updatesLive BlogATLETICO 0 CHELSEA 1Olivier Giroud scores brilliant BICYCLE KICK as Blues win in BucharestTIGER TRIBUTETiger Woods' rollercoaster career looks to be over after horror car accident'CONDITION UNKNOWN'What to know about the car Tiger Woods was driving when he crashed'MAJOR DAMAGE' Tiger Woods injured in horror crash in LAWOODS UNVEILEDWhat is Tiger Woods' real name, his age and who is girlfriend Erica Herman?
