D RECYCLED PET RECYCLED PET PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a thermoplastic that is 100% recyclable into the same PET products (fibre and bottles). PET is the most often recycled plastic in the world, commonly used in packaging of drinks, food, personal care and pharmaceutical products. Recycled PET (RPET) can be used to make clothing, jackets, reusable carry bags and even roof insulation. PET plastic can be recycled again and again without any change in its characteristics or quality. PET material collected for recycling is carefully separated and cleaned in the process. Sorted bottles are ground up to "flakes". These flakes then are thoroughly washed in more stages to remove any residue of dirt or foreign materials. The material is heated to melt the plastic that is extruded into strands and chopped into tiny pellets. Pelletized plastic provides a uniform-sized material that can be reintroduced into the manufacturing process.
