When is the 2022 Olympics?

Did you know that the first modern Olympics date back to 1894? Of course, the ancient Games go back much further, but 1894 was the year the International Olympic Committee was founded by Charles Pierre de Frédy and Baron de Coubertin. Two years later, the first modern games were held and the International Olympic Committee still oversees the games today.

Today, the modern Olympics are held every four years and are a system modeled on the ancient Olympics. At that time, the ancient Greeks were the way to mark the passage of time, but today we adhere to the four-year cycle in a way that honors tradition. With this, the 2022 Winter Olympics will begin on February 4, 2022.

Are the 2022 Olympic uniforms eco-friendly?

Along with the latest U.S. uniforms with a focus on sustainability, this year’s jerseys are also made from recycled polyester, recycled down and wool certified to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). In fact, Ralph Lauren announced in an Olympic press release that it would use 100% RWS certified or recycled wool by 2025.

Lauren added: “We are investing heavily in expanding our sustainability solutions that can significantly reduce the impact of us and the broader industry, and we are proud to create thoughtful apparel for Team USA that embodies this mission.”

Likewise, Olympic brown medalist bobsledder Aja Evans thanked the company for adopting sustainable uniforms. Evans told Yahoo! “Definitely Ralph Lauren is a brand you must listen to. It feels good to wear and is sustainable. It makes them feel… you know, helping the environment. And they work with Team USA players and help get the money back. So I think around them they are a system that supports us.”

Next up is Team Canada! Designed by Canadian retailer Hudson’s Bay, the 2020 Olympic kit features a graffiti denim jacket and white jeans, a tribute to Canadian streetwear. After receiving considerable backlash on the internet, Team Canada announced a new partnership with Lululemon, which will take center stage in 2022. This year, lululemon designed a ‘fit for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games’.

Far from the 2020 denim look, the 2022 Canadian Olympic athletes will wear an all-red and all-cream kit featuring insulting, sweat-wicking and antibacterial fabrics. This jersey is designed to withstand water and wind and has plenty of hidden pockets (including the Canadian Maple Leaf icon). The full outfit includes a parka, down jacket, jogger, trapper hat, bucket hat and zip-up.

But what’s most interesting is the versatility of the Lululemon kit. The parka has an adjustable multi-part zip and the down jacket can also be switched to wear as a backpack. Pretty cool, right?
