“Sustainable Fashion” is steadily becoming a popular buzzword, but there is often no further explanation beyond the label.
自2018年以来，P.E.T. Plastic Ecological Transformation一直在用100%回收PET瓶为原材料制造纺织产品。然而，当试图深度了解从塑料瓶到服装的生产过程，我们发现，这个行业一直依赖的再生认证，还存在很多问题。
Since 2018，P.E.T. Plastic Ecological Transformation has been making textile products made from 100% recycled PET bottles. However, in our search to understand the bottle to the garment manufacturing process, we found that fashion brands relied on a certification process that could easily be forged.
Where did my T-shirt come from?
As the supply chain is long and opaque, recycled goods could easily become mixed with inferior products. There remain instances where unscrupulous manufacturers purchase new plastic bottles just to recycle them into recycled yarn hence defeating the purpose of recycling. In some, waste was not sterilized to cut cost, and hence affecting the hygiene standards of the recycled product.
Hence the consumer's question remains: "Where did my recycled t-shirt come from, and how do I know that its safe and reliable?"
Where did my bottle go?
On the other hand, many products have the little triangle recycling label on it, leading consumers to believe that it will hence recycled. That is far from the truth as only 9% of the worlds plastics are recycled, most of it ends up in incineration, landfill or oceans.
So while waste separation gains traction, consumers also start to ask "where did my plastic bottle in the recycle bingo?"
Who am I?
Where would my bottle go?
Where did my Tshirt come from?
P.E.T. 链的 Existential Questions
为了寻求真相，我们开发了P.E.T. 链 —我们自己的基于区块链技术的追溯系统，在从瓶子到颗粒、从纱线到最终产品的每一步中跟踪记录。消费者通过扫描标签上的二维码可以看到很多他们关注的信息。
In the chase for the truth, we developed P.E.T. Chain - our own blockchain-based traceability system to track the raw material throughout every step, as it transforms from bottles to pellets to yarn to end product. The consumer can see the whole process by scanning the QR code on the label.
