New Products Kickoff Year-Long Goal to Convert All Bottle Production to Tritan Renew
Expanded styles and sizes of Nalgene Sustain line made from 50% recycled material offers a more sustainable way to reduce, reuse and recycle in one bottle.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (March 2, 2021) – Nalgene Outdoor, maker of reusable water bottles, today announced a significant increase in its commitment to manufacturing with recycled materials. By the end of 2021, Nalgene will strive to convert all production of its reusable water bottles to Tritan Renew material, a revolutionary resin made from 50 percent recycled material.
The company kicked off this initiative in August 2020 when it led the industry in adopting the groundbreaking properties of Tritan Renew material in the launch of its Nalgene Sustain bottle, the first and only reusable bottle on the market made from recycled materials that is durable, reliable, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. Today, Nalgene introduces a broad extension to the Sustain line with the introduction of more sizes and styles in its first wave to convert production fully to Tritan Renew material by the end of 2021.
“When Nalgene created the reusable water bottle category more than 70 years ago, the brand was a pioneer in sustainability, and we remain as committed to sustainability today as we were then,” said Elissa McGee, general manager, Nalgene Outdoor. “We’ve never wavered in producing our bottles in the USA to reduce our carbon footprint; and our decision to be the first to adopt and today to extend the use of recycled materials in the production of Nalgene bottles is another bold step to continuously increase the eco-benefits of Nalgene hydration gear.”
