Tupperware Brands announced a new strategic partnership with Tritan™ Renew from Eastman, a global specialty materials company focused on sustainability and safety. Tupperware’s ECO+ line, which features products made from sustainable materials, will now feature two new products, Lunch-It® Containers and Sandwich Keepers.
“At Tupperware, we continuously invest in new research and design for innovative, functional and environmentally-responsible products that not only meet new consumer trends but build upon the love and trust we have established over our 75-year history,” said Bill Wright, Tupperware Brands Executive Vice President of Product Innovation. “Our efforts to support the next generation of sustainable materials continues to reflect upon our purpose to nurture a better future every day by reducing waste at every step of the product lifecycle. I’m honored today to expand our ECO+ line with new product introductions and our new partnership with Eastman’s Tritan Renew, which allows us to use recycled material in our more transparent designs. I know together, we’ll work to reshape what is possible in regard to recycled material.”
Tritan Renew is a resin made with Eastman’s polyester renewal technology that recycles at the molecular level and breaks down plastic waste so it can be recycled to create new material. This resin is durable, dishwasher safe and free of BPA, BPS and BPF. The brand’s partnership with Tritan Renew will allow the company to further expand its ECO+ line and introduce innovative and environmentally friendly products, including those that require a clear, glass-like design without compromising clarity.
“Tupperware has been at the forefront of sustainability, even before sustainability was top of mind,” said Scott Ballard, Vice President and General Manager of Specialty Plastics at Eastman. “The brand is synonymous with bringing durable, reusable plastics into the home to keep food fresh. At Eastman, we’re pleased to make molecular recycling a reality and deliver products that reduce consumption, advance the circular economy, and create value from waste. Tupperware’s choice of Tritan Renew shows what is possible today—not just years in the future.”
