Plastic pollution has become a huge problem, calling for immediate action from humans and, specifically, from the companies that produce them, in an effort to reduce the impact on the environment. Improvements in existing collection and recycling systems have been underway across different countries. In this review we explore the different methods of reverse logistics that exist to collect PET bottles for recycling. We also analyze a prime example of the creation of a circular economy of a PET bottle in Mexico, the processes involved, and the environment impact compared to other countries. Additionally, we review upcoming issues regarding the replication of these methods in other parts of the world and balance them against the impacts, both positive and negative.
