ONYA rPET Shopping Tote Bags – Charcoal

What makes ONYA rPET bags so cool?

Our reusable shopping tote bag has been specially designed to provide a convenient alternative for carrying ONYA rPET reusable bulk food bags, jars and containers to and from your local bulk food store. It also works great for when you need to tote bulkier items when shopping or when going to the beach for example, as well as a collector for picking up things like laundry or toys when tiding up the house.

Our lightweight ONYA rPET shopping tote bag is also incredibly compact. Folding up into a pouch the size of your fist, our shopping tote bags are super convenient to carry so you can always have them On Ya.

We love diverting existing waste from landfill which is why our reusable shopping tote bag is made from BPA free, food safe recycled plastic drink bottles. We find it exciting to think that the bag you carry your shopping home in is made of “rubbish” otherwise destined for landfill.

Our  ONYA rPET shopping tote bag boasts a double lined base and extra wide square gusset making it perfect for transporting bulk foods in both bags and jars.

Description

RPET is the short name often used for recycled polyethylene tetraphyte (PET). It is the world’s fourth most common plastic resin, used in everything from food packaging, clothing and Stem backpacks. When you see the word ‘RPET’ it simply means that the PET in the product you’re looking at should come from a recycled, pre-existing source. Without getting too technical, every plastic you have ever used will have started its life from a specific polymer. For instance, the plastic in your PVC milk bottle will have been created using a different polymer than your PET water bottle.

In short, RPET takes plastic that has already been created, usually plastic bottles, and chops the bottles into tiny flakes. These flakes are then melted to separate the core PET ingredient inside of the bottle. This PET can then be used to make anything from a sweater, Stem backpack or even another plastic bottle. Not only is up to 50% less energy used than making PET from scratch, but by using existing bottles already created, it ensures these bottles don’t end up in landfill. It also means we can leave the planet as it is, rather than obtaining the core ingredient via the highly damaging process of crude oil primary extraction, we instead make use of a product in abundance that may otherwise have directly contributed to landfill, polluting our oceans, harming marine life and entering the food chain.
