Elissa McGee, General Manager

This past August, we were first to market with our Nalgene Sustain bottles to fulfill a critical demand among eco-conscious consumers seeking more impactful ways to reduce their carbon footprint. The new bottles are made from 50% certified recycled material from waste with Tritan™ Renew. This revolutionary technology rescues single-use plastic materials from landfills and transforms what was once waste into safe, durable, performance-oriented recycled material ideal for reusable consumer goods.

“The Best of What’s New Awards showcase the year’s greatest feats of human ingenuity,” says Popular Science Editor-in-Chief Corinne Iozzio. “Even in a year like 2020, innovation has helped us glimpse a future that’s safer, smarter, and more enjoyable than we might have thought possible. This collection, which includes everything from a new generation of Mars explorers to ultra-hygienic print-to-order eyeshadows, is full of items we’re proud to call the Best of What’s New.”

Each Nalgene Sustain bottle rescues the equivalent of eight single-use plastic bottles from landfills. It’s a more sustainable reusable water bottle without any compromise. Same weight, same shape, same size, and just as durable as ever! Throw it in the dishwasher day after day; you’re using a recycled bottle to refill and reuse while automatically reducing waste.

“It’s a win-win,” says Elissa McGee, general manager, Nalgene Outdoor. “With a Nalgene Sustain bottle made from 50 percent recycled single-use plastic, we’ve significantly multiplied the environmental benefits of a reusable bottle without compromising the quality, function, or performance that made Nalgene famous.”
