The best post-consumer PET comes from bottle deposits.  Currently, only 11 states have PET bottle deposit laws. These eleven states recycle more beverage containers than the other 39 states combined. Every recycled PET bottle counts.  Did you know that eighty five 16 oz. PET bottles will produce the fill for a sleeping bag?  And that five 2-liter PET bottles will make:

  • 1 square foot of polyester carpet
  • an extra large tee shirt
  • filling for a ski jacket

These are just a few examples of how PET bottles, that would traditionally clog landfills for centuries, are being turned into quality products.
