Teijin lays 'Green Carpet' made from PET bottles at TIFF

Sep '13
Teijin Limited announced that, for the sixth consecutive year, it will provide an eco-friendly Green Carpet made with ECOPET recycled polyester fiber derived from used polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles for the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF). 
 
The event is one of Asia's most competitive film festivals and will be held at the upscale Roppongi Hills complex and other Tokyo venues from October 17 to 25.
 
The Green Carpet will be used in place of the traditional red carpet during the TIFF including the opening ceremony. The ECOPET carpeting will cover a total area of 1,800 x 0.9 meters, the equivalent of about 26,000 half-liter bottles. This brings the six year total of carpet produced for TIFF to 100,000m, or some 169,000 half-liter bottles.
 
Over the past five years, TIFF embraced the theme of ecology with a variety of green initiatives, including the use of Teijin's Green Carpet. This year, TIFF will also carry out a charity drive and implement e-ticketing to reduce the use of paper.
 
In addition to carpeting, Teijin's ECOPET is used in a wide range of applications, including apparel, uniforms, interior textiles such as curtains, industrial materials such as tents, banners and filters, and civil engineering materials.
