Recycling Bottled Water ContainersThose plastic bottled water containers contain PET – Polyethylene terephthalateplastic.

It has several qualities that make it the container of choice compared to metal and glass.

  • 100% Recyclable
  • Reduced amount of raw materials needed
  • Less energy to transport
  • Leaves a smaller carbon footprint
  • Less packaging for protection

To see the process in action, I would invite you to check out this video. You will see the process from beginning to end. From there, you will see how these bottles are recycled and used in the manufacturing of new plastic products.

This video is well worth watching. It is very short at just over 3 minutes long.
