made with waste materials
What is Recycled PET?
Recycled polyethylene terephthalate is known as RPET, and it is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. The use of recycled PET in virgin resin typically results in reduced energy consumption, lower cost, and reduced environmental impact.
Why do we use it?
You may wonder why we use recycled PET instead of normal polyester? Which is more readily available in bulk and cheaper.
Simple. The ever increasing consumption of single-use plastic items, which contaminates our soil and water, imposes a serious risk for our health and disastrous global consequences for our planet.
People are willing to pay for the value behind the products. It's not only buying an RPET bag but also a donation to the environment and children's future.
Where is made from?
Imagine the water bottles that you have just thrown away; they are called 'post-consumer' plastics. All these bottles that end up in our local waste collection companies and local waste management organizations will, in time, become a part of our products.
These companies collect, classify the bottles and later wash, dry, and crush them. Therefore these recycled materials can be transformed into yarns to create fabrics to make bags, footwear, accessories, and clothing.
Using these recycled materials to make Rivta's high-quality recycled PET polyester weaved fabrics. We support sustainability, and at the same time, our local community. At the same time, we wish to grow and help our local recycling companies to thrive too.
Developing and designing fabrics with our local weavers help to believe that creativity can come from small scale productions. Our passion is to create and have a piece of material developed by us to help the planet.
Our source of supply is China-based, and therefore all materials are traceable and duly certified.
At Rivta, this is how we transform the waste PET bottles into our new bags:
