In our 70+ years of empowering women to lead a life of freedom, health and service, there’s one thing we might not be incredibly well-known for – that being, we’re the plastic company that reduces plastic waste. The truth of the matter is that we’ve been sustainable before sustainable was even cool.
When Earl Tupper designed the world’s first multi-use plastic bowls, he did so with the intention of cutting down on food waste. In an age where consumers become activists against the seas of trash we see splashed across our social media feeds, it’s an understatement to say that Earl Tupper was ahead of his time.
With a catchy anthem, we sing “We are the solution to the pollution.” It’s a bold statement, but we have the products to back it up in a big way.
We’ve rounded up 5 of our favorites that will help you lead the most sustainable life possible.
- Eco Straw
Introducing the last straw you’ll ever need. The number of single-use plastic straws you use in a lifetime is almost 2x the number of known fish species living in the ocean. What’s more, over 8.3 billion single-use straws pollute beaches the world over. You already know that single-use straws are steadily being banned by enterprises and governments the world over, but we say why ban something so useful? And why not help solve the problem that already exists? Enter the ECO Straw. It’s reusable, washable, long-lasting and is made from repurposed plastic.
It’s circular material and design is probably the best part – it’s made from mixed plastic waste! This new material reflects Tupperware’s commitment to promote a more circular economy, one where plastic waste and materials are used, reused and repurposed. The ECO Straw is the first product in our new collection produced in this revolutionary material.
We love the patented needle tip that allows for a more comfortable drinking experience and the versatile length can be adjusted to fit large and small cups. Shop our Eco Straw here.
- Eco Water Bottle
Repeat after us: Tupperware plastic is safe. Not only is it safe, but it helps to cut down on every day trash, like single-use water bottles. Our Eco Water Bottles are the reusable, waste-reducing and safe solution. Our sizes run the gamut, and we have a color for just about every mood (and outfit) and as usual, every product we sell is dioxin, phthalate and BPA free. Find your size and color here.
- Vent ’N Serve® Containers
Like we mentioned earlier, our roots are in preventing food waste. When you have leftovers or want to cook ahead for the week, our Vent ’N Serve® product line is the one you’ll need to store, preserve and reheat to delicious origins. It’s unbreakable, microwaveable and stackable. You can also freeze for later, since they come a variety of shapes and sizes to stack neatly in your freezer or fridge. To serve, simply thaw, “pop” the valve tab up, reheat in the microwave and take it directly to the table! Shop them here.
- Microfiber Towels
Clean your home from top to bottom while reducing your house’s carbon footprint. Meet your preferred housecleaning partner. Tupperware’s Microfibers offer a complete range of micro synthetic fibers combining the advantages of Polyamide and polyester. Polyamide has a high capacity to absorb water, fat and residues. Polyester is capable of cleaning and polishing with minimum residue. Microfiber has one of the finest deniers of any textile. It is a filament that has been divided by a specific treatment in order to increase its absorption capacity for perfect cleaning. Tupperware’s Microfibers require less or no use of chemical products, making them a good product for families with babies and young children. The Microfibers are reusable and don’t necessarily require chemical products to clean. Economical and eco-friendly, it is the perfect product for people who want an efficient product without extra costs to use it. Choose your type here.
- Modular Mates® Containers
Buying in bulk and storing in bulk has never been easier. We also think 2020 is a dandy year to overhaul your pantry and give everyone kitchen envy. The seals ensure bug-proof storage and keep food fresher longer. Unique containers come in varying shapes and heights to allow you to fully customize your kitchen. Containers stack up equally—a “1” and a “2” stacked together equal the height of a “3”. This saves space on your shelf. Shapes work together, two Ovals fit atop a Square, a Square and an Oval fit atop a Rectangular. Each container is designed with a polished window to reveal what (and how much) is inside. This eliminates the need to remove containers from the shelves or to open the seals to see what is inside. Check out the classic set here.
We hope that the message is ringing loud and clear: plastic in itself is not bad. It’s an integral part of our day to day, a crucial building material in things like our TVs, cars, etc. It’s when plastic is disposed of irresponsibly that it becomes dangerous. Half of all plastic produced is wasted at the end of its multi-use life. Tupperware helps you reduce the amount of plastic waste coming from your house by giving you products to be more responsible and healthier.
SO, can you say it with us?! 1, 2, 3… There is NO time to waste!
