From Fizzy Drink to Funky Fleece: The RACE to Recycle PET Bottles

We all know the convenience of a grab-and-go plastic water bottle. But what happens after that last sip? At RACE (Recycling and Circular Economy), we’re on a mission to turn those used bottles into something amazing – and recycling PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic is a big part of that!

Why Recycle PET Bottles?

  • Resource Rescue: Making new plastic uses tons of energy. Recycling existing PET bottles slashes that need, conserving precious resources.
  • Landfill Lifesaver: Landfills are overflowing, and plastic bottles take ages to decompose. Recycling keeps them out of landfills, creating more space for other waste.
  • Eco-Friendly Fashion: Recycled PET (rPET) is reborn as clothing, backpacks, and even fleece jackets! It’s a sustainable way to rock the latest trends.

How Does RACE Help?

RACE works hard to make PET bottle recycling accessible! We partner with businesses and organizations to:

  • Collection and recycling of used PET bottles from PAN India by our dedicated collection and recycling partners.
  • Educate communities about the importance of PET recycling and how to do it right.
  • Advocate for advancements in recycling technology to make the process even more efficient.

You Can Help Too!

Join the RACE to recycle PET bottles:

  • Rinse and Squash: Give your used bottle a quick rinse and a squish to save space in the bin.
  • Check the Label: Look for the recycling symbol (usually a number 1 inside the recycling arrows) to ensure it’s a PET bottle.
  • Spread the Word: Talk to your friends and family about the importance of PET bottle recycling.

By working together, we can turn those used bottles into a greener future! Let’s RACE for a cleaner planet, one recycled bottle at a time!
