Tupperware Brands Introduces Vision to Reduce Plastic and Food Waste by 2025
World Environment Day was celebrated across the globe on 5th June 2019. To mark this important day, Tupperware Brands (NYSE: TUP) announced the company’s global vision - “No Time to Waste,” to significantly reduce plastic and food waste by 2025. Through No Time to Waste, the Company and its global network of 3 million Sales Force, 12,000 associates and suppliers are unified in their approach to reduce – and eventually eliminate – waste.
At the start of the plastic revolution nearly 70 years ago, Tupperware Brands was a leader in introducing reusable, long-lasting plastic in the home. Today, Tupperware Brands continues to design products that are durable, high-quality, and made to keep food fresher, longer and to be reused for years to come. From the start, these designs have been rooted in sustainability – from Earl S. Tupper’s signature seal that was uniquely designed to lock in freshness, to today’s modern Eco Water Bottle, which replaces single-use plastic bottles. Tupperware Brands has a natural role in helping consumers reduce plastic and food waste.
“Our Company’s purpose has always centered on the belief that our products and the opportunities we present through our business have the power to change lives for the better,” said Tricia Stitzel, Chairman and CEO of Tupperware Brands. “Through No Time to Waste, we are deepening that purpose by making changes in our products, operations, recycling and partnerships to increase the longevity of our planet, our people and the communities in which we live and work.”
“Tupperware recently completed 23 years in India. Since the very beginning, we have lived by our global values of changing lives, living smart and acting responsibly. We have been advancing our social and environmental impact with every initiative that we undertake on the marketing, distribution, and CSR front. Caring for food is ingrained in our DNA, and our partnership and community efforts like the Feeding India Association aimed at reducing food wastage reflect the same.” said Deepak Chhabra, Managing Director, Tupperware India. “With our latest commitment through No Time to Waste, we will further augment our end to end proposition, starting from more sustainable packaging, like compostable materials, to enhancing efforts towards our return process to ensure minimum wastage.”
