1 KILO PET 2015

PET- bottles, different sizes, fused, unique

Producing 1 kilogram of PET plastic requires 17,5 kilograms of water and results in air emissions of 40 grams of hydrocarbons, 25 grams of sulfur oxides, 18 grams of carbon monoxide, 20 grams dioxide. In terms of water use alone, much more is consumed in making the bottles than will ever go into them.
