Sustainably designed series in recycled PET for more moments to share.

What is rPET?

rPET stands for ”Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate,”. PET is a type of thermoplastic polymer used to manufacture many common products, such as plastic bottles for beverages and food packaging.

rPET is simply recycled PET plastic. It is produced by recycling used PET products from the consumer stream, primarily plastic bottles. The process involves collecting plastic bottles, crushing them, and melting them down to create new plastic material. The recycled material can then be used to manufacture a variety of products, including bottles, packaging, textiles, and other plastic products. In this case, Billi.

Why do we use rPET?

The use of rPET plastic in products has several advantages, in our opinion. By recycling plastic bottles and other PET materials, the need to produce new plastic is reduced. This saves energy and reduces the amount of waste. The production of rPET plastic also requires less energy and resources compared to producing new plastic. By recycling and reusing plastic materials like rPET, the concept of circular products and systems is promoted, where products and materials are reused instead of being discarded.

With rounded, generous cups adorned with the classic Sagaform stripe, the family members of the series have a modern, sleek design with an exciting character developed for an active life and moments together.

– We at Sagaform love outdoor living and excel in the field. Our previous picnic series, Juni, is a firm favourite for many, but now we aim to create an alternative that appeals to a different type of customer. Using 100% recycled material, rPET, was a natural choice from the start, but we also wanted to develop a design language that is more unisex. Billi also incorporates design elements from our beautiful glass series Saga, which creates both recognition and coherence. We believe and hope that Billi will become the obvious choice for the future of outdoor living, caravan vacations, boating, and for all moments worth celebrating a little extra, says Beatrice Lindgren, Design and Concept Manager at Sagaform AB.
