What is PET?

CiboWares’ selection of PET beverage cups and many of the plastic lids for take-out containers are made from PET plastic. PET cups are made from 15% post consumer recycled material and both cups and lids are clear in color for the easy identification of contents. But what is PET?

PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. This clear plastic can be found in many different plastic cups and bottle containers. It’s non-toxic and 100% recyclable. PET is generally recognized as being one of the most popular recycled plastics. It is easy to identify if products are made by PET, simply look for the symbol! PET products will have arrows forming a triangle with a #1 in the middle. The #1 is referred to as the resin identification code which allows users to quickly determine that the product is made from PET.

Recyclable and durable, our selection of PET products can be used to store and serve food items and are a wonderful lightweight option for any business.
