Even if you take a close look at the many t-shirts you see every day, you may not realize that plastic bottles have an unexpected life beyond the recycling bin - a place in the fashion world. Recyclers are using the same lightweight PET plastic that are used to make beverage containers to make a cotton-like material that can be used in shirts, blankets and more!
Innovations in recycling are truly changing the way we live. At Sip & Savor, we are strong supporters of recycling – in fact, a lot of beverage packaging is composed of recycled materials, too! We certainly hope that knowing there's life beyond a single use inspires consumers to actively participate in recycling at home and in their communities.
