Recycled PET (rPET) is a high quality and strong polyester fibre made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles (post-consumer PET bottles). Labels are removed from the bottles, bottles are crushed and washed, and from the recycled plastic chips new rPET yarns are spun. From these yarns the new rPET polyester fabric is woven. Recycled PET is an eco-friendly material as we reduce the production of new plastic and recycle old plastic into new plastic. Thus we are also keeping the bottles out of the landfills and oceans!
In addition the production of rPET is less energy consuming. A proper way to conserve natural resources and reduce the burden on the environment. Independent research proofs that medium sized re-usable foldable shopping bags from rPET and PET have the lowest environmental impact compared to other medium sized bags.
Polyester fabric is a woven fabric made from polyester yarn which is a high quality and strong fibre spun from new polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The polyester fabric is a strong and long lasting fabric, thus ensuring you a durable bag which can be re-used over and over again.
In addition the polyester fabric can be recycled by melting the plastic and re-extruding it to make new yarns. Independent research proofs that medium sized re-usable foldable shopping bags from rPET and PET have the lowest environmental impact compared to other medium sized bags.
