What is RPET?
Our recycled fabric is made from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which found in plastic bottles. Our fabric is certified by the Global Recycled Standard. By using this for all our products we are rescuing these bottles from going to landfill or polluting our oceans. We give new life to waste, creating bags that not only sustainable but also actively benefit the planet!
How is it made?
100% OF OUR PRODUCTS ARE MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
❥ Recycling used plastic bottles to make our fabric reduces the waste going into our landfills and polluting our oceans.
❥ RPET Uses 33-35% less energy in production than polyester.
❥ 80% off the plastic bottles we buy end up in landfill.
❥ 60 million plastic bottles go to waste every day globally.
❥ It takes 1000 years for one bottle to decompose.
❥ Unfortunately some 'eco' bags are not actually ecological for the environment. Cotton and paper bags actually cost so much more in energy to produce than plastic. You need to reuse them 7,000 to 20,000 times to have the same cumulative environmental impact (water use, energy etc) as a classic plastic bag.
The Kinder Option
This is why we believe RPET is by far the kindest option for both people and the planet. We've rescued over 3 million plastic bottles so far. Join our mission to help us reduce plastic pollution and create a new generation of concious consumers!
