Kerdyn™ Green is made with up to 100% recycled PET content, sourced from plastic bottles.  See our sustainability page for details of how many bottles are recycled into each sheet of Gurit Kerdyn™ Green.

Tesimonial - Luisa Gaiero

“If these plastic bottles to go to a landfill, they could take up to 500 years to decompose. Producing products from recycled plastics reduces energy requirements by 66 percent.“
