“iPet” stands for intelligent PET (also known as polyethylene terephthalate), to create a new use for these old materials. Handmade in South Africa from recycled plastic drink bottles, women sew a zipper to turn two bottles into a pouch. The designs are created by decoupaging paper napkins – so if we can find it on a paper napkin, we can put it on on an iPet! Add potpourri, jewelry, colored pencils or your favorite delicacy for a totally unique package. Or come up with your own fun, creative idea!
This imaginative pouch ox is upcycling at its finest – creating value, function and beauty from everyday waste. It also helps to benefit a disadvantaged community. Previously unemployed women have been taught how to create these gift boxes and learn simultaneously about business and sales with the organization “All Women Recycling” in Cape Town.
