Recycling with Simply Bottles

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

  • raise awareness for environmental sustainability and encourage behavioural change
  • reduce plastic pollution and support government goals to divert waste from landfill
  • help drive a circular economy
  • meet your organisational CSR goals
What We Recycle

DGrade recycles PET or type 1 plastic.

PET is most commonly water and juice bottles, but can also be transparent plastic cups or food containers. 

Look for the PET or 1 symbol on the containter to confirm the plastic packaging can be recycled with Simply Bottles.

Plastic collected through Simply Bottles is recycled by DGrade into Greenspun™ yarn for textile production.
