PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. You can tell if a product is made from PET by looking for the symbol on the product. Products containing PET will have arrows forming a triangle with a #1 in the middle. The #1 is known as a resin identification code. This number is how users and staff know the product is made from PET. This particular plastic is commonly used to make plastic bottle containers and cups, is non-toxic and 100% recyclable.
