Creating Reusable Packaging with rPET
When it comes to reusable packaging like reusable shopping bags, garment bags, pouches and accessories, many materials come to mind. But one material that stands out is rPET. Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, or recycled PET is a strong, recyclable material that is used for soda bottles, water bottles and food jars.
Collecting, sorting and recycling Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) produces the material rPET. At the end of the recycling process, PET is reduced to small flakes that can be turned into new products, especially materials for reusable shopping bags, pouches, garment bags and fashionable athletic packaging. This process puts us on the path toward a greener and safer future. Using rPET in our packaging keeps us compliant with bag laws across the country.
When it comes to packaging, some advantages of rPET is that it is affordable to produce, has the ability to be washed, dried, printed and customized to mimic other materials. Some other treatments that can be added to this versatile material are embossing, debossing, velvet flocking, zippers, grommets, and piping.
If you are looking for an adaptable and durable material for your next packaging project, Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate might be the exact material needed to create unique and memorable packaging.
