With climate and environmental causes at the core of what we do, we build our products to last a lifetime. Timeless design and features for all lifestyles keep our gear relevant year after year, from generation to generation. For over a century, we’ve engineered tried and true, tough bottles, food jars, cookware, and more from stainless steel, which happens to be one of the most recyclable materials out there (1).
As outdoor lovers and stewards of this planet, it is a guiding light for Stanley to create a better world. Taking care of the Earth is the key to ensuring that our beloved outdoors remains a resource for all to appreciate. That’s why we support groups that also are fighting for the health of our planet and against climate change. Stanley is a founding member of the Outdoor Industry Association’s Climate Action Corps* and the Plastic Impact Alliance, and contributors to Protect Our Winters, Conservation Alliance, and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.
In the U.S. alone, single use coffee cups generate over 2.2 billion pounds of waste a year and most of that cannot be recycled or composted(2). Only 23% of the almost 50 billion disposable plastic bottles purchased in the U.S. per year are recycled(3). Unrecycled waste ends up in landfills or worse, scattered across our environment, making its way into waterways and impacting animal life and ecosystems. Just one reusable mug can keep 500 single use coffee cups out of the waste stream and one reusable bottle prevents 167 plastic water bottles from ending up in landfills and our ecosystem(3)(2).
If it’s your morning coffee, an afternoon lunch break, or a well-earned campsite dinner, Stanley’s got you covered with products that don’t let you down and never need to be thrown away. Durable, reusable gear that is passed down through generations means less junk in landfills, and that’s something we can get behind.
We know there may come a time when your Stanley has seen better days. You can refresh and revive your trusty companion with Replacement Parts and our Warranty Services. Stanley bottles have even found renewed life as family heirlooms full of epic stories, flower vases, lamps, welcome charitable donations, or can be carefully recycled through your local scrapyard or transfer station to be repurposed into something new. Use Earth911 to help you find local stainless steel recycling services. Always think of the Earth first and keep Stanley out of the landfill.
