Making A Material Difference Since 2007
The perPETual group was formed in 2007 to find a technology solution which could make a significant reduction in the number of waste plastic bottles. Since 2015 we have processed more than two million used PET bottles per day into high-quality products. We have remained at the forefront of the circular economy and we pride ourselves on the fact that we only produce, manufacture and sell 100% sustainable products. Our ethos is all about ‘making a material difference.’ We care about the world we live in, continuously strive towards creating a sustainable future and encourage all of our employees and others that come into contact with our brand to adopt this same ethos.
perPETual sales and marketing centre is based in the UK with manufacturing and processing facilities in India, Turkey, and South Korea. We have over 350 staff (full time and contract), and partnerships with over 25 textile mills and 40 repeat customers who are all part of the perPETual movement to work together to make this a better world.
As of November 2017, perPETual people have transformed over 1.5 billion used PET bottles into approximately 45 million square metres of high-quality sustainable polyester fabric. perPETual partners such as Decathlon, Adidas, Puma, H&M etc. have used this fabric to make approximately 44 million T-shirts, 12 million garments and 4 million bags / accessories. Next time you go down to your local high street shop consider buying products made from sustainable recycled polyester and be part of the growing perPETual movement.
We thank and recognize our investors for the help we have received in growing perPETual and making it the company it is today.
