Tupperware® Renews National Park Foundation Partnership – Our Commitment to Preserving America’s National Parks Continues With A Focus on Waste Reduction and Sustainability

Since October 2020, Tupperware® has been a premier partner of the National Park Foundation’s Resilience and Sustainability initiative, which aims to support parks by making them more resilient and sustainable for the benefit of parks and park goers. We are proud to continue our partnership with a renewed, multi-year $2 million donation to keep creating meaningful impact across some of America’s most treasured places and spaces, funded through our non-profit arm, Tupperware Brands Foundation. With increased visitation comes an increased strain on resources, and Tupperware is proud to support critical waste reduction projects, such as new water refill stations, increasing recycle infrastructure, and more!

Creating more sustainable national parks for the benefit of parks and park visitors – that’s the mission shared by the National Park Foundation and Tupperware®. To honor that mission, Tupperware Brands Foundation, the non-profit arm of Tupperware Brands, has renewed its commitment to support NPF’s efforts to make national parks more resilient for generations to come, with a multi-year pledge of $2M in support.

Through the support of the Tupperware Brands Foundation, nine national parks thus far have begun projects aimed at improving waste reduction and diversion, including:

Installing and improving water refill stations to reduce single-use plastics and trash in parks including Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center, Great Basin National Park, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve.The collective impact of the water refill installations will result in the diversion of nearly 10 million single-use plastic bottles from landfills annually!

Composting infrastructure improvements and innovative pilot programs to reduce landfill waste in parks. Through the partnership, Grand Canyon National Park is able to install solar panels on its waste transfer facility, allowing the facility to maintain the temperature necessary to compost year-round, leading to the diversion of at least 1,000 tons of waste from the landfill per year.

Recycling infrastructure and education, including signage which is equally as important in helping visitors properly dispose of trash, recycling, and food waste, and Tupperware’s funding supported labeling projects at three parks – Yellowstone, Great Basin and Wrangell-St. Elias, which are aimed at improving each park's ability to keep certain items out of the landfill and increasing waste diversion rates.


Now more than ever, the planet needs our help, and our renewed commitment to the National Park Foundation helps preserve some of America’s most treasured spaces.

When approached to continue our partnership, it was not even a question – not only is Tupperware further elevating our leadership in environmental stewardship, we are tangibly supporting conservation, preservation, and sustainability, which are all critical for the national park experience.

For more than 75 years, Tupperware has been synonymous with minimizing waste, from reusable food containers to keeping vegetables and fruits fresher longer, with innovative, environmentally-friendly and reusable products, and we’re pleased to build on our brand’s heritage and the impact of this partnership to continue efforts to educate consumers and prevent waste before it begins.
