Several retail locations throughout Delaware North’s Parks and Resorts division have recently started selling reusable products from Tupperware as part of a program with proceeds benefitting the National Park Foundation.

The line of reusable products helps to promote reuse with items such as coffee tumblers, sandwich keepers, snack containers and durable water bottles.

“This program is really a win-win; it helps remove single-use plastic products from our parks while also raising money for the important work done by the National Park Foundation,” said Cendy Sangermano, director of merchandise for Delaware North Parks and Resorts. 

 
“We care deeply about our national parks and are passionate about preserving these natural places for future generations. These eco-friendly products are carefully selected after identifying a commitment to sustainable materials and reduced impact to the environment.”

The program is currently active at eight locations throughout Delaware North’s portfolio, including Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, Shenandoah National Park, Peaks of Otter Lodge/Blue Ridge Parkway, Kalaloch Lodge/Olympic National Park and Tenaya Lodge near Yosemite National Park. 

The introduction of the product line was the result of collaboration between the Parks and Resorts retail group, Delaware North Procurement and the GreenPath team.

“This product line from Tupperware fits perfectly with the company’s sustainability goals through GreenPath,” said Vicki McMichael, director of compliance and sustainability for the Parks and Resorts division.

“Not only will our current guests and visitors love the high-quality products, but they can feel good about using them while visiting the national parks this summer and fall,” McMichael added.

In October 2020, Tupperware pledged $1 million to the National Park Foundation to keep national parks fresh and divert nearly 10 million single-use plastic bottles from landfills annually.

The funding will equip the National Park Service with new water refill stations, as well as composting and recycling infrastructure and waste-reduction education across the United States.
