Tupperware® x National Park Foundation: Supporting Waste Reduction and Diversion in National Parks

Since October 2020, Tupperware and its non-profit arm, Tupperware Brands Foundation, have 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.

In 2022, we renewed our partnership to increase our impact across national parks. To date, NPF’s reported Tupperware's support has funded the completion of 44 water bottle refill stations across seven national parks, helping to divert approximately 10 million single-use plastic bottles from landfills annually. Funding from 2022 is helping to support the installation of 26 additional water refill stations in 2023, with 22 installations alone planned for National Mall and Memorial Parks and four at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. Once completed, these installations are projected to divert an additional one million single-use plastic bottles from ending up in landfills, bringing the total estimate of single-use plastic bottles diverted from landfills annually to nearly 11 million, according to NPF.

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.

Partnership Project Highlights

Enabling seven projects focused on installing and improving water bottle refill stations, reducing single-use plastics and providing park attendees with a more sustainable solution. At Castillo de San Marcos National Monument alone, more than 47,000 water bottles - or 1,982.6-pounds of plastic waste - were eliminated by visitors using the refill station.
Funding composting infrastructure improvements and innovative programs to reduce landfill waste in parks, such as Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, whose compost collection pilot program has lessened bathroom waste by close to 80% since 2020.
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 National Park, Great Basin National Park and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, 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.
