Top 10 Sustainable Merchandise made from rPET


Why You Should Consider Gifts Made From rPET


Is your company looking for sustainable premiums that can help get your brand and image out there? Products made from rPET can help to show your commitment to sustainability.


The benefits of using such items are numerous. Here’s a little more information about the rPET and the way it impacts the environment positively, as well as its cons.


What is rPET?


RPET(recycled polyethylene terephthalate) is PET plastic that has been recycled, reprocessed, and made into something new. In today's world, PET plastic, which may be found in everyday beverage bottles, is one of the most recycled plastics known.


How can one get rPET from plastic bottles?


Step 1: Collect plastic bottles

Step 2: Clean and shred them

Step 3: Process them into small granules

Step 4: Create new products like fabrics and other items


How does rPET impacts the environment?


Let’s start with the pros:

Energy: Recycling saves 75% on fossil fuels during production, and another 5% during incineration.

CO2: 70% of plastic is made from petroleum. Recycled plastic products save on these raw materials and reduce CO2 emissions.

Work: Recycling creates a lot of jobs globally.

Water: Recycled PET plastic uses 90% less water than regular PET.

Reusable: Millions of plastic bottles are thrown away every day. 80% of the cost of bottled water comes from the bottle itself. Recycling these plastic bottles makes sense economically.


But, it’s still not perfect…

rPET fabrics have microscopic fibers that can cause a huge problem. Every time the synthetic fabric is washed, hundreds of millions of these microscopic plastic particles are released into the water. These eventually make their way into locations like lakes, rivers, and the ocean. Once in these habitats, these microplastics not only poison the water but also kill the animals that live in it. When these animals consume microplastics, the particles can get twisted up in their digestive tracts and disturb the regular function of their bodies. As we consume animals that reside in these waters, we also wind-up consuming plastics, hurting our own bodies too.



Though rPET has cons that can affect the earth, we can avoid it by selecting rPET merchandise wisely. Simply avoid using rPET material to produce products or gifts that need constant washing.

As a brand owner, you should consider using rPET material for your marketing merchandise; help to decrease the amount of plastic waste that enters landfills.


Below are some rPET products that you can consider for your next marketing campaign:
