Why is a PET bottle called so?

You may have often come across people mentioning those cute little water bottles as PET bottle. You would have also read 'PET' written on those lovable little bottles. So what does it actually mean? People often confuse the term PET with the word Pet which means something affectionate or favored. The 'easy to carry and care like a pet' design adds to this confusion.

So technically PET stands for Poly Ethylene Terephthalate. PET is the raw material, a kind of plastic using which these bottles are made. It is a low cost, easily recyclable material.
