PET bottles are not single-use
It’s one month until World Water Day on 22 March and Zenith Global’s UK Water Drinks Conference on 24 March. New research from the Natural Source Waters Association finds that:
• 46% of consumers think single-use plastic must be sent to landfill or incineration.
• 30% are unaware “plastic drinks bottles are 100% recyclable”.
• Yet 100% of PET bottles are 100% recyclable.
• And many of them already include recycled plastic – often 25%, many 50% and some 100%.
Hardly surprising then that the term single-use is having a “negative impact and confusing consumers about what to recycle”.
