At a time when sustainability is becoming increasingly important, the popularity of rPET backpacks is also increasing. But what exactly is rPET, and why are more and more brands and consumers choosing backpacks made from this material? In this blog we dive into the world of rPET and explore the meaning, benefits and versatility of rPET backpacks.

What is rPET?

rPET stands for recycled polyethylene terephthalate, a material obtained by recycling PET plastic, such as water bottles. This process involves collecting, cleaning and melting PET waste, after which it is converted into a new, usable material. rPET is a great example of how recycling can lead to less waste and a reduction in environmental impact.
