Igloo rolls out of stainless-steel drinkware bottles to replace single-use plastic bottles

USA – Texas-based innovative cooler solutions company Igloo has launched a new collection of stainless-steel drinkware featuring nine bottle and tumbler styles in a range of sizes from 12oz to 80oz.

The Drinkware Collection also includes interchangeable lids that are leakproof, with advanced temperature retention and other intuitive, user-friendly features.

According to the company, the bottles and tumblers are dishwasher-safe and are designed to replace single-use water bottles and plastic cups.

The Drinkware Collection includes the Flip ‘n’ Sip lid, the Sport Sipper lid and the Twist ‘n’ Chug lid, which are interchangeable with similar-sized bottles and tumblers within the collection.

The new collection offers aesthetically pleasing design features that enhance the drinking experience, including a flat surface “thumb-grabber” along the side that aligns with the mouth opening on the lid and a slimline shape with a rounded bottom cap that fits standard cup holders.

The Igloo Drinkware Collection includes nine sizes within two styles and comes in a variety of durable clear gloss-coated colors — white, carbonite, modern blue, spruce, and flamingo.

The innovative bottles come at a time when single-use plastic pollution is a menace in the US. According to Oceana results on a new poll, 73% support a stop in building new plastic production facilities, in addition to widespread support for policies that limit the use of single-use plastics.

The survey results further indicated national concern for plastic production impacts with 82% of participants supporting the protection of people in neighborhoods affected by pollution from nearby plastic production facilities.

Oceana’s poll revealed that over 8 in 10 participants are concerned about single-use plastic products and are in favor of requiring companies to reduce plastic packaging and foodware, increasing the use of reusable packaging and foodware, and holding companies accountable for plastic waste.

An overwhelming 82% support reducing the federal government’s use of single-use plastic — an important finding given that the General Services Administration is currently considering ways to reduce unnecessary single-use plastic used by federal agencies.

Oceana recently submitted public comments urging the GSA to phase out non-essential single-use plastic throughout federal government buildings and operations.

Joining the fight against pollution, the state of California passed an ambitious law to significantly reduce single-use plastics, becoming the first state in the US to approve such sweeping restrictions.

Under the new law, the state will have to ensure a 25% drop in single-use plastic by 2032. It also requires that at least 30% of plastic items sold or bought in California are recyclable by 2028 and establishes a plastic pollution mitigation fund.

“It’s time for California to lead the nation and world in curbing the plastic crisis. Our planet cannot wait,” said Ben Allen, the state senator who introduced the legislation.
