Myth: Tupperware Costs More

One common misconception about plastic products is that all plastic is the same.

If you take a little bit of time to look into this topic, however, you’ll find that this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many different types of plastic products with different compositions and different ways you can use them.

What you can use them for, and how long they last are important considerations.

What do you really waste every week?

If you buy bulk toilet paper and compare buying a 100 pack with a 10 pack you expect the 100 pack to last longer right? So if you are buying a container that lasts decades compared to a “budget” alternative, that can be used in useful ways you didn’t expect and saves thousands of dollars in wasted food over its lifetime, it makes sense that you can think of it as an investment right?

If that product has been designed with multiple benefits, while you’re using it, then you’re multiplying the value you are getting back throughout the product’s lifetime.

Some are cheap to manufacture but brittle and have a short life span. Others (like Tupperware products) are made with longevity, recyclability and reusability in mind from day one. When someone recognises a Tupperware product in their grandmother’s pantry that she bought 30 years ago, that’s a testament to the durability and longevity of the product.

Let’s face the fact that we can’t get away from plastics, they are everywhere: in your car, appliances, consumables, packaging and more. We cannot avoid it completely, but the type of plastic you choose, where it is sourced from, and critically, its usable lifespan is key to ensuring it is used to its full potential rather than the single-use plastics that end up in our oceans in a relatively short space of time.

The difference in the cost of a luxury sports car vs a mass produced brand is something we are accustomed to – the same with high-end shoe and clothing brands. So why not think of your household storage items the same way?

When you compare product brands A and B, what are you really comparing?

Think about how many containers do you throw into the rubbish or recycling bin a year (if it’s recyclable)? How much food do you waste? (The average is $20 to $50 per week).

When you think about these numbers – it gives you some perspective.

Reducing Food Waste

A container that doesn’t break, or needs replacing every 12 to 24 months and that reduces the amount of food you throw out can save you hundreds of dollars over time.

Why does Tupperware offer a limited lifetime warranty? Because products are made to last.

Here’s an article on plastic waste

Tupperware products promise to be:

Take your ClearMates to the supermarket deli section for top up to avoid using disposable plastic.

Small conscious choices add up to alot over time. And hey – the less time it takes you to move food to your fridge the better in my opinion.

Unless you live in the wilderness, off the land, chances are you’ll be making decisions about what you consume and how you consume it every day.

Being conscious about the choices you are making is something you can feel good about. At Tupperware, this thinking is part of the culture from design to the delivery of products to your door.

Look out for changes, not only to how we get our products to you but also stay tuned to learn more about innovative products that Tupperware is creating, with sustainability in mind.

And thanks for being part of our journey.
