Recycling with Simply Bottles

Plastic pollution is a key concern for communities, businesses and governments. Through our Simply Bottles initiative we work to increase recycling rates of PET plastic and promote recycling and environmental awareness through workshops, events and activities.

10 million water bottles are produced every day in the UAE, yet recycling rates remain very low. Your organisation can help change this by working with Simply Bottles to:

  • raise awareness for environmental sustainability and encourage behavioural change,
  • reduce plastic pollution,
  • help drive a circular economy,
  • meet your organisational CSR goals, and
  • support UAE Vision 2021 objective to divert 75% of all waste from landfill.

Close the Loop by ordering products made from plastic bottles you have helped to collect!

What We Recycle

Simply Bottles recycles PET 1 plastic - a clear plastic most commonly used for water bottles.

  • Look for the recycle symbol with PET or 1 on packaging to confirm plastic item can be recycled with Simply Bottles.
  • Remove straws and empty liquid or food residue before placing in recycling bin.
  • Plastic collected through Simply Bottles is recycled by DGrade into Greenspun® yarn for textile production.
  • Please note masks & gloves cannot be recycled.
