Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Only 9% of the Earth’s plastic has been recycled, but together we can boost that percentage. Recycled materials also require up to 85% less energy and 90% less water than their raw counterparts because they have already been turned into a form of plastic.
Facts about RPET:
- 51 billion plastic bottles go to the landfills annually
- It will take 700 years before plastic bottles in landfills start to decompose
- Recycling 1 ton of RPET containers saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space
- rPET polyester fabric has a 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton.
