With its RECYCLED PET PEN, uma has demonstrated that the end of the plastic bottle does not have to be The End. Old PET bottles are collected, washed and shredded. Then the resultant raw material is melted to form a granulate and is cast into moulds. This enables a 0.5 litre PET bottle to be turned into a uma RECYCLED PET PEN: robust, durable and attractive.
