Tervis Tumbler

Tervis Tumbler has been manufacturing its signature, crystal-clear, insulated drinkware since 1946. They are sold in 6,000-plus retail outlets nationwide. This company's 'green team' is composed of people representing everything from production to administration and sales. This representation resulted in identifying areas of energy, water and waste reduction that would not have been identified had they not had a multi-functional team. Tervis has educated and motivated its staff to be aware of opportunities for reducing environmental impacts and demonstrated the management support needed to act on those opportunities.

Tervis has implemented numerous green measures throughout their operation. In a recent renovation, addition lighting was updated to efficient T-6 fluorescent tubes. In a new wing, LED strip lighting is used for product inspection. In December 2012, Tervis moved to single-stream recycling, and encourages full participation of employees by having employees bring their deskside trash and recycling bins to designated recycling and trash stations. Any cups that don't meet quality inspection are sent to a recycler and become vinyl fencing. Tervis and their suppliers reuse shipping materials, further reducing waste.
