Did you know that PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is actually polyester? PET bottles are 100% recyclable, and according to the EPA, recycling one pound of PET bottles (that’s about 10 two-liter soda bottles) saves approximately 26,000 BTUs of energy.
- A single-serve PET bottle (0.5 liter) is strong enough to hold 50 times its weight in water.
- PET has a high strength to weight ratio.
- PET is very resistant to moisture.
- PET is highly transparent.
