Nike has created recycled plastic bottle jerseys to adorn the stars of the 2010 World Cup. Each jersey is made from recycled polyester requiring eight plastic bottles to make.
These recycled plastic bottle jerseys are also available at retail outlets, so this doesn't seem like it will be a one-off deal. Nike has managed to take 13 million bottles out of landfills located mostly in Taiwan and Japan. The whole world will be watching the stars at the 2010 World Cup shine in their recycled jerseys. Going green has never been so sporty.
