Recycling creates a lot of jobs globally.
Recycled PET plastic uses 90% less water than regular PET. Plus, recycled plastic bottles don’t end up in the ocean.
Every day, millions of plastic bottles are thrown away. 80% of the cost of a bottle of water comes from the bottle itself. Recycling makes sense economically, too.
