How many plastic bottles were Fabiano or Robinho wearing for the FIFA 2010? Hard to believe but the star football players were wearing the jersey made of recycled plastic bottles. Manufactured by Nike, the jerseys are made from recycled polyster, each jersey made from eight bottles.

Besides Brazil, other countries which were supporting for the cause were Australia, the Netherlands, South Korea, the US, Serbia and Slovenia.
