WHAT DOES THE rePETe™ LOGO ON A CHICOBAG® BRAND REUSABLE BAG
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. View all rePETe™
