Our reusable produce bags are not virgin! They are made from 100% recycled post-consumer polyester, certified by the Global Recycled Standard. By using recycled materials we conserve petroleum-based resources and also reduce energy consumption by up to 75%.
Oil refining is a complex industrial process that turns crude oil into many different products, for example Polyethylene Terephthalate. Umm wait, poly…what?? Let’s just stick to its commonly used names: PET for hard plastics like water and soft drink bottles, or Polyester for synthetic fabrics, like your yoga pants. PET is the most widely recycled material in the world, as it’s recognised as a safe, non-toxic material that can be turned into many forms and products like food packaging, clothing, upholstery, padding, insulation and so on. Recycling PET saves precious resources and keeps the waste out of the environment. It is a highly valued and easily recyclable material, so remember to always recycle your plastic bottles if you end up having to buy any. However we encourage you to get a reusable water bottle and refill it, as there is already more than enough plastic around for generations to come.
RPET Production process:
Plastic bottles are collected, sorted and deep cleaned then chopped into small pieces. They are then ground, cleaned again, melted and reformulated into tiny flakes or chips. These chips are melted and extruded to form fibres which are then woven into a fabric, called RPET or recycled polyester.
