Sustainability isn’t just a trend – it’s a new way of doing business. People everywhere have made it their responsibility to become greener consumers, and many companies are answering the challenge by offering more environmentally friendly products.
CamelBak® is one company taking huge strides to shrink its carbon footprint, in part by making all its plastic water bottles with Tritan™ Renew, an eco-friendly material composed of 50% recycled content. Here’s why it’s such a game-changer.
A Better Life For Old Plastics
Much of what gets recycled ends up in landfills and incinerators or is mechanically chipped and recycled into new products that don’t always have the durability needed for daily use. There is science in the solution. Polyester Renewal Technology (PRT) is more efficient than mechanical recycling and produces new material made with 50% recycled content. Less virgin plastic needed for new products means saving precious environmental resources. Tritan™ Renew is highly durable, dishwasher-safe, and free of BPA, BPS and BPF chemicals.
Reusable Bottles Made Better
The science behind the process is fascinating. Here’s how it works: First, polyester waste plastics are collected for recycling. They’re then broken down into monomer building blocks, creating new copolyester plastic. Next, bottles are made with recycled material, creating less demand for finite resources, like virgin petroleum. You still get the same awesome product, but with less impact on the environment. It’s a win-win.
