Me: What? Like animals??? Or like leftover animal product stuff.

Just FYI via Ask.com
PET is used as a raw material fore making packaging materials such as bottles and containers for packaging a wide range of food products and other consumer goods. Examples include soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, detergents, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and edible oils. PET is one of the most common consumer plastics used. Polyethylene terephthalate also can be used as main material in making paper.
