Do you know what RPET is? Here's why you need to know!
Do you know what your promotional products are made from? What about where they come from? Well at Original Thing, we are becoming increasingly conscious of the journey the products we source go on. With responsible sourcing, RPET products are one of the largest sustainable categories. So, this got us thinking, do people know what RPET is?
The basic answer is that RPET is recycled polyethene tetraphyte. Many everyday products are produced from RPET such as pens and jackets. Additionally, it's used for lots of packaging. The material is a brilliant alternative to PET.
RPET uses up to 50% less energy than making virgin PET. With normal PET its properties can take 700 years to break down when sent to landfill. PET takes existing plastic reduces it tiny parts which are melted down to extract the core PET.
Often with RPET, it's thought the only products you can get are water bottles. However, you will be amazed at the vast range of products manufactured from this fantastic material.
