Better Planet Water Bottle Initiative
Starting this month, one of our clients is making a big change in an effort to reduce waste and be planet-friendly! This initiative, powered by Xplor, Inc., will eliminate plastic bottles and cups used by thousands of employees at multiple locations.
Over the last couple weeks, our client has been busy distributing custom-made tumblers to all of their employees to use in place of wasteful plastic bottles and cups. The stainless-steel tumblers come in a variety of colors and can be used for hot or cold liquids.
New employees will receive a tumbler at orientation, and additional tumblers and replacement lids are available for purchase on their company e-store, also managed by Xplor, Inc.
This effort has proved to be a huge success already, with the original order of 50,000 tumbler quickly distributed, and a reorder for an additional 12,000 tumblers in the works! Amazing! The company e-store will also carry tumbler accessories, such as reusable straws and an easy-use tumbler handle.
Xplor, Inc. deployed a similar strategy during the 2018 Senior Helpers conference in St. Louis, MO, during which all attendees were given a BPA-free water bottle at registration. Hydration stations were placed around the conference meeting rooms for attendees to stay hydrated during their sessions without using plastic bottles or cups.
