Refillable PET bottles are the most sustainable packaging solution for beverages. These robust bottles can be washed and refilled by the producer, saving the production of new packaging and the associated emissions. Compared to refillable glass their lightweight nature means that they are more carbon efficient and cost efficient. A refillable PET bottle can be reused up to 25 times, before being recycled and are bottle to bottle recyclable. They can fill on glass filling lines with small adjustments, making them a low capex solution.
Traditional refillable systems, as seen in South America and Germany, operate in a simple loop. Bottles are manufactured, sent to the filler to process and out to the market. Once the customer has consumed the beverage, they return the bottle to a designated point and reclaim a small deposit placed on the bottle. The final step is the bottle being returned to the producer to be washed and refilled.
For beverage producers, using 1L Refillable PET Bottles with 30% recycled content can lead to a carbon footprint reduction of 28% (vs 0% rPET), and against refillable glass has an 81% benefit in carbon reduction over its lifespan. Refillable PET bottles that are retired from the supply chain are simply removed from the bottle pool to be recycled and used in the production of new bottles. The recycled content coupled with the renewable energy powering Petainer’s sites, is helping brand owners meet their sustainability targets, and work towards becoming carbon neutral. At a time where customers perceive the end-of-life solutions of a product just as important as the carbon footprint, the Refillable PET Bottle with recycled PET is the ultimate sustainable solution. This combination of reuse, recycled content, and responsible end-of-life, makes Refillable PET Bottles perfectly suited for the circular economy.
