Recycling. A handful of pelletised recycled plastic. This is PET (polyethylene terephthalate), a plastic commonly used in liquid containers. It is easily recycled and, as a thermoplastic, relatively easy to reuse. The high cost of the polymer resin (ethylene terephthalate) means that recycling is also cost efficient. Photographed in Moscow, Russia.
