Plastic Bottles into Clothes

PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, is a form of polyester that is often molded into plastic bottles and containers for packaging foods and beverages. Fun fact: if you recycle 14 20-ounce PET bottles, that’s enough recycled polyester to be used to make one extra large t-shirt.
