In recent years, the use of plastic has become a very contentious subject globally. Huge amounts of plastic being found in seas and major waterways has a crippling effect on marine life. PET or Polyethylene Terephthalate is a strong but lightweight material used to make containers for drinks, personal healthcare, other food and non-food applications. PET is fully recyclable using a multi-stage process.
PLASTIC BOTTLES ARE NOT TRASH !!
Recycling of plastic is a major contributor in reducing the amount of plastic discarded. South Africa is part of the top 10 plastic recyclers in the world and is at least 10% better than European countries due to its very unique collection network.
