While the earliest example of a reusable Nalgene water bottle was developed back in 1949, it would be another 20 years before it first saw outdoor application. But even that wasn’t enough to give the product widespread consumer appeal; in fact, it wasn’t until 2002 that the brand really began to take off. Now that it’s here, however, Nalgene isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Especially when you consider the latest initiative to come from the Rochester-based water bottle specialist. As an extension of the Sustain line that it launched back in August of last year, Nalgene has pledged to convert all of its bottle production to Tritan Renew material by the end of 2021. Made from 50% recycled resin, Tritan Renew offers all of the same properties you’d find in any regular Nalgene bottle (i.e., durable, leak-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe) albeit with a much more carbon-conscious construction. And because they’ll come in seven different “Inspired by Nature” colorways, you can even display your eco enthusiasm for all to see. You can buy the Sustain line at the link below starting at $13.
