Both the plant plastic and recycled plastic are fantastic materials, but we believe combining them together is the most sustainable solution for the long term. If you make a 100% plant plastic bottle, the material all comes from a renewable source which is really good, but with no recycled content it won't use up any of the material that's already been produced.
If you make a 100% recycled plastic bottle, you can only recycle it about ten times because the quality degrades and there are some losses. To allow the material to be reprocessed in the recycling system you need to add some high- quality plastic so the recycled material produced can be used and recycled again.
By using half of each we tackle both of these problems with one bottle. The new plastic from plants comes from a good place and introduces high quality material into the recycling system - the recycled plastic reuses old bottles.
