FAQs

Q: Why does Raw Pressery use plastic bottles?  
A: We use plastic bottles for our juices as they are cold-pressed, never pasteurized and undergo high water pressure processing (HPP) technology for preserving the juice. Plastic is the only element that can sustain the pressure, glass cannot withstand the high pressure. 
Any juice that’s in a tetrapak or a glass bottle is pasteurized in order to get shelf life and pasteurizing impacts the nutritional value of the juice. Our juices are never boiled or pasteurized to preserve nutrition value in the juices. 
Glass is also heavier and requires more fuel energy to transport impacting the environment with higher carbon footprint. 


These realities made us think hard for an innovative solution. 

Q: What do you do with the plastic that you generate? 
A: RAWCYCLED is an All Good. No Bad Initiative by Raw Pressery. Through this initiative we aim to be a plastic neutral company and recycle all our plastic waste into fabric. 

Q: How do you recycle it?
A: We collect used RAW Pressery bottles, wash them and then crush them into flakes. These  plastic flakes are melted at a temperature of 270 degrees and put through an industrial sieve which finally comes out as thread. This man-made thread is then drawn onto spinners to weave recycled plastic polyester. The fabric is then further treated on a carding machine which breaks the bonds of the fabric to give it a softer texture. It is then combined with 5% breathable spandex to make the fabric breathable and soft to touch. This reversible t-shirt is the first of our athleisure capsule collection that is studio to street ready.
