Nalgene Outdoor debuts sustainable bottle
Nalgene Outdoor, maker of reusable water bottles, is first to market with a sustainable product made from recycled plastic waste called Nalgene Sustain. These bottles, manufactured in Rochester, fulfill a critical demand among eco-conscious consumers seeking more impactful ways to reduce their carbon footprint, officials say.
Nalgene Sustain bottles are made from 50 percent certified recycled material from waste with Tritan Renew. The technology rescues single use plastic materials from landfills and transforms what was once waste into safe, durable, performance-oriented recycled material ideal for reusable consumer goods.
“The new Sustain line fits squarely with Nalgene’s mission: to reduce, reuse and refill all in one even more sustainable bottle,” said Elissa McGee, general manager, Nalgene Outdoor. “With a Nalgene Sustain bottle made from 50 percent recycled single-use plastic, we’ve significantly multiplied the environmental benefits of a reusable bottle without compromising the quality, function, or performance that made Nalgene famous.”
Nalgene Sustain is currently available on Nalgene.com, all in Nalgene’s classic 32-ounce wide mouth bottle style. Starting Sept. 8, the bottles will be also available at all REI stores with an MSRP of $14.95. Initial colors at REI will be pomegranate, clementine and aubergine. Additional sizes and styles in the Sustain collection will debut in early 2021.
