Recycled P.E.T. Bottles

Many people don't realize there’s a very dirty side to recycling. The simple act of throwing something away like a plastic bottle into a large box marked with a recycling sign is enough to make some of us feel good.

Unfortunately 80% of plastic water bottles end up in landfills and it takes at least 1000 years to decompose. leaching pollutants into our soil and waterways. As a result, U.S. landfills are overflowing with 2 million+ tons of discarded water bottles.

There’s one corporation listening and doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuel based resources ...AND reducing stockpiles of useless P.E.T. water bottles!.

PIP® (Protective Industrial Products) understands the importance or reducing waste. Not only as a means of reducing costs but also as a way of reducing environmental impact. Their new line-up of coated industrial work gloves uses the latest in bio-based and recycled fiber technologies.

While you may not notice a difference in comfort or function, you will feel better that these new sustainable work gloves with advanced technology greatly reduced the manufacturing carbon footprint. But it doesn’t stop here!

Recycled P.E.T. water bottles are shredded and extruded as a fiber and then blended with recuperated polyester yarn that results in gloves constaining up to 70% recycled content! The combined result is PIP’s newest line-up of G-Tek’s ECOSeries™ of coated seamless knit work gloves using environmentally friendly fibers and recycled yarn technologies.
