How are the plastic bottles collected?
In most cases bottles are collected from residential and commercial compounds as well as coastal areas by small cooperatives, and sold to certified collection centers. These facilities operate under a Renewable Resources Management Business License issued by the local government.
Important note: Plastic bottles used in the fabrics are not taken from landfills but diverted before they arrive there. This prevents the unsafe labor conditions of landfill waste picking and ensures proper compensation for the collectors.
