WHAT IS rePETe™?
rePETe™ is a trademarked term we use to help our customers identify which ChicoBag® products are made using recycled content. Every product with the rePETe™ logo is manufactured using recycled materials. The term rePETe™ refers to recycled PET. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is the dominant material used in plastic drinking bottle production and can be recycled into a variety of useful materials.
WHAT DOES THE rePETe™ LOGO ON A CHICOBAG® BRAND REUSABLE BAG MEAN?
When you see a ChicoBag® brand reusable bag with the rePETe™ logo, you can be sure of two things. First, the fabric used in the bag production is 100% recycled PET. Second, many other components used in production (the aluminum carabiner, polyurethane cording, etc.) are made from recycled sources as well.
Every rePETe™ product has a unique recycle symbol printed on the interior of the bag.The number in the center of the symbol states the exact percentage of recycled content in that bag. All rePETe™ products also have a materials statement printed on the inside of each bag. The materials statement lists every recycled component used in manufacturing.
WHY SO THOROUGH?
Transparency is at the core of our company values. We understand that with all the greenwashing going on, it can be difficult to make the right purchasing decision. Our rePETe™ program is designed to make it easy for our customers to purchase the ChicoBag® brand reusable bag that is most in line with their values and lifestyle.
