It’s the “r” that makes all the difference! This means that the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) from the food industry was recycled. Bottles of water and other drinks are probably the most common PET objects. This abundant material, long buried without any other use, is now washed, crushed and then reused as pellets to create various rPET objects. This recycled material helps to limit greenhouse gas emissions and save energy.

Pros of rPET:

  • A carbon footprint 90% lower than that of nylon.
  •  A carbon footprint 75% lower than that of virgin polyester.
  • A carbon footprint 50% lower than that of cotton.
  • This polymer is 100% recyclable and has all the qualities of polyester.
