Tupperware is renewing its commitment to the National Park Foundation with continued support and a $2 million multi-year donation. This new pledge follows Tupperware’s investment last year in national park composting infrastructure, water bottle refill station installations and education.
Tupperware continues to be a premier partner of the National Park Foundation’s Resilience & Sustainability program, created to support the National Park Service (NPS) as it develops sustainable and efficient infrastructure that will provide for generations to come.
“Now more than ever, the planet needs our help, and our renewed commitment to the National Park Foundation helps preserve some of America’s most treasured spaces,” said Miguel Fernandez, Chief Executive Officer of Tupperware Brands. “When approached to continue our partnership, it was not even a question–not only is Tupperware further elevating our leadership in environmental stewardship, we are tangibly supporting conservation, preservation, and sustainability, which are all critical for the national park experience. For more than 75 years, Tupperware has been synonymous with minimizing waste, from reusable food containers to keeping vegetables and fruits fresher longer, with innovative, environmentally-friendly and reusable products, and we’re pleased to build on our brand’s heritage and the impact of this partnership to continue efforts to educate consumers and prevent waste before it begins.”
Tupperware’s partnership with this NPS initiative supports large-scale projects within the parks, like the construction of solar panels for Grand Canyon National Park’s waste transfer station, which enables the park to operate a full-time food waste composting program.
“Kicking off 2022 with a renewed sustainability commitment from Tupperware sets the tone for a fantastic year ahead for the national parks community,” said Will Shafroth, National Park Foundation President and CEO. “Tupperware’s partnership enables the National Park Foundation to expand our support for critical efforts that are helping to reduce energy use, reduce waste, conserve water, and ensure national parks will thrive for generations to come.”
