PET PEN Stift

A simple 0.5 litre PET bottle

Whenever we finish drinking the contents of a PET bottle, we take it to the money-back machine at a supermarket bottle bank, place it in the machine, return it to the materials cycle and get our deposit refunded. Environment-friendly systems of this kind cannot be found everywhere - often these bottles are simply thrown away, turning into gigantic mountains of refuse, or are thrown away in forests and waterways, threatening entire eco-systems.

Not so with uma. We take responsibility.

Upcycling in detail

Whenever we transform products that we would normally throw away with household refuse into new objects, we call that process upcycling. We here at uma Ullmann Schreibgeräte GmbH write "sustainability" in upper case!

PET PEN Stift

Here is how the transformation process functions

Long before you get your hands on a RECYCLED PET PEN, old PET bottles are collected, washed and cut down to a uniform size to create the material. These small grains, known as pellets, are then heated and melted. Now the material can be fashioned into new shapes, creating a new product.

This method protects the environment

The entire production process for this writing instrument will be implemented within Europe. Also, through the use of the uma Jumbo lead, which simply writes and writes, the uma RECYCLED PET PEN makes a further sustainable contribution towards the conservation of our natural world.This robust, durable material is well suited to promotional use over a long period, and in a sustainable manner.
