Product of the Moment: Recycled Shirt

While at a short course last week, I won a prize for correctly answering a trivia question about per capita use of paper in the United States.  My prize was a polo shirt made of recycled PET made by  The company uses 8 soft drink bottles for each shirt (hence the company name).  Even the buttons are made of recycled PET.  The shirt is not dyed, and takes its color from the bottles.  The shirt itself can be recycled once its service is over.  New shirts cost $40.

  1. The first thing I would be doing is a mass balance - mass the shirt and mass a pop bottle. (Yes, they are pop bottles.)

    The mind also wanders trying to see the relatioship of an IMPI conference to your job. A food connection would be obvious, but I wonder if there is a deeper connection; "Microwaves! They're not just for dinner anymore!"
