VISIT TAMPA BAY QUENCHES THIRST FOR SUSTAINABILITY WITH UNIQUE WATER BOTTLE COLLABORATION
Visit Tampa Bay and Join the Pipe Partner to Boost Destination's Sustainability Initiatives
Tampa, FL (October 23, 2023) – As Tampa Bay’s sustainability efforts continue to make positive strides nationally, Visit Tampa Bay is proud to partner with an environmentally-friendly company to keep the momentum going strong. Join the Pipe, an innovative Dutch startup specializing in reusable water bottles, was selected by Visit Tampa Bay to create distinctive reusable water bottles that showcase the area’s stunning skylines. Beyond promoting the area, the bottles also come with an added benefit — significantly reducing plastic waste.
These innovative bottles are designed to promote tap water use and encourage the reuse of containers, effectively combating plastic pollution. Crafted from bio-based plastic derived from sugarcane fibers, these bottles not only exemplify eco-friendliness but also contribute to a CO2-negative environmental footprint, aligning with the collective commitment to a sustainable future.
“We're excited to take a sip towards a greener tomorrow one bottle at a time,” said Santiago C. Corrada, President and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay. “By partnering with Join the Pipe and embracing eco-friendly materials, we're not only helping to reduce plastic waste but also inspiring everyone to work together to create a cleaner, more sustainable future.”
To tangibly demonstrate the organization’s dedication, Visit Tampa Bay will distribute reusable water bottles to travelers at marketing activations, members of the media, partners, and convention attendees at trade shows worldwide.
