Beyond the Bottle

What can we do with all the single-use PET plastic water bottles already in existence? As part of the #TakeBackTheTap exhibit, we came across several companies who are repurposing those bottles for use in new products.  

Ungalli Clothing Co. donated a tshirt to the #TakeBackTheTap exhibit that was made from 10 recycled PET plastic bottles. Our sincerest thanks to this Canadian company for their support!  

Adidas' Parley running shoes are made from 11 recycled PET plastic bottles. 

Oraki's stretch leggings are made from 12 recycled PET plastic bottles. 

10 spools of Gütermann's polyester thread is made from 1 recycled PET plastic bottle. 

Each pair of shoelaces from allbirds is made from 1 recyled PET plastic bottle.
