Tervis, the drinkware innovation company that created the first double-walled insulated tumbler, recently created another “first”: the first recycled cup made of post-industrial material in collaboration with The 30A Company.
“We are committed to innovation and to helping resolve the current crisis with single-use plastic,” said Tervis president Rogan Donelly. “We’re proud to partner with 30A to create drinkware that not only celebrates the coastal lifestyle but also helps preserve it for future generations to enjoy.”
The 30A Company – a coastal lifestyle brand based in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida – is also fighting the battle against single-use plastic with its full line of apparel made from recycled plastic bottles.
“Tervis is the original reusable drinkware company,” said Mike Ragsdale, 30A’s Founder and CEO.
“Think about it: No one ever throws away a Tervis tumbler. Now with additional stainless steel and post-industrial materials, the Tervis tumbler is better and more eco-friendly than ever.”
Tervis has offered products that are guaranteed for life since 1946. The guarantee is a testament to the company’s quality and commitment to reusing. The material that is collected from all the guarantee returns are turned into other useful products in order to reduce the footprint of virgin plastic.
“As a native Floridian and avid fisherman, it’s important to me to keep our oceans clean,” said Donelly. “We want our products to live on forever, and we don’t want them to end up in landfills or our oceans.”
