Bottle to Bag

About HALT

  • It takes 700 years for a single plastic bottle to decompose and 10 billion plastic bottles are sent to landfill in the UK every year.
  • HALT offers a commercially attractive solution to the two biggest plastic pollution issues: single use plastic bags and plastic bottles.
  • The reusable bags from our HALT brand are made from the material taken from recycled plastic bottles via a process which turns the plastic into a durable and practical fabric called rPET (recycled PolyEthylene Terephthalate).
  • Our ethical production is fundamental to the integrity of our bags and our Jutexpo Standard ensures HALT products offer customers quality, ethical, reusable bags.
  • The bags are the first to have the integrity of certification to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
rPET: From Bottle to Bag
Recycling Plastic Bottles to Create Reusable Bags with Integrity
  • Each reusable bag uses between three and ten recycled plastic bottles – which might otherwise have ended up in landfill or other, uncontrolled waste streams.
  • We produce fabric with integrity, certified to the Global Recycled Standard:
  • Manufactured using a dyeing-free method for colouring fabric
  • Created using a low carbon emission production process
  • Customer factory visits are welcome
  • Ethically-produced to the Jutexpo Standard
