Ecofriendly Resin Improves Clarity

ParaStar, a polyethylene terephthalate (PET), reportedly produces clearer bottles, processes easier, and is environmentally more friendly than other PET grades.

It is 100% recyclable and can be recycled with traditional PET resins. It is said to improve bottle-tobottle consistency and lowers acetaldehyde levels by 25% or more, making it a candidate for water bottles.
