ACR+ member Reloop is one of the co-signers, together with Zero Waste Europe among others, of a joint NGO-industry letter that calls on members of the European Parliament to avoid supporting amendments that would dilute the message against breaking the loop of PET bottles. The letter focuses on the issue of downcycling PET beverage bottles in textiles claimed to be ‘sustainable’ or ‘circular’. The joint letter highlights the concern that green claims on textiles made by using recycled plastic polymers where these polymers do not actually come from fibre-to-fibre recycling but come instead from PET bottles are not in line with the circular model for PET bottles. The message urges the members of the European Parliament to promote high-quality and closed-loop recycling in all relevant pieces of EU legislation.
