Tupperware, through its nonprofit organization Tupperware Brands Foundation, announced the results of its three-year partnership with the National Park Foundation. To date, Tupperware’s pledge to the foundation has helped reduce single-use plastic waste, develop recycling and composting infrastructure and install 44 water bottle refill stations across seven parks. These efforts have helped divert 10 million single-use plastic bottles from landfills each year.
This year’s funding will help install 26 additional water bottle refill stations in 2023, which is expected to divert another one million single-use plastic bottles from landfills.
“We value our partnership with the National Park Foundation tremendously, and it’s incredible to see the tangible results thus far of our collective efforts to enable a more sustainable experience for current and future park-goers, and just as importantly, our planet and these beautiful, treasured spaces–the national parks,” said Miguel Fernandez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tupperware Brands. “Since 1946, Tupperware has been synonymous with minimizing waste before it begins, starting with our iconic yet quality, durable, and reusable products. We are committed to our purpose of nurturing a better future every day, for people, communities, and the environment. Our partnership with the National Park Foundation serves as a key component to delivering on that commitment.”
