Customers Seeking Green Choices Should Consider PET Lanyards

Today’s selection of printed lanyards offers some alternative materials for the eco-conscious customer. One of these is PET or polyethylene terephthalate, a transparent form of polyester. The advantage of purchasing PET lanyards is that this plastic is recyclable, and the PET used to make lanyards comes from used beverage containers. The fact that it is recyclable also means that when it is discarded, it can be taken to a recycling center and put to some other use.

Other than that, there is no noticeable difference between these lanyards and those made from other materials. They look as good, retain their colors as well and last as long as any others. They will continue to display their message clearly for the lifetime of the piece, providing free advertising for that business or group. PET feels just like other forms of polyester. It is flexible and comfortable, encouraging the receiver to use it. The only difference is that by using this material, customers are making an ecologically responsible decision and reducing their carbon footprint.

Personalised lanyards made of PET have the recycling symbol and the word “recycled” printed on them. Despite its name, PET does not contain polyethylene and has the recycling code 1, indicating that it is perfectly safe for skin contact. PET does not give off volatile organic compounds.
