DrinkFit Takes Responsibility for Our Partners, Consumers, and the Environment

Here at DrinkFit, we take our planet seriously. After all, it’s our shared home, and we, as inhabitants, play a key role in its well-being. This means caring for the environment, giving back to the community, and promoting healthy choices.

Loving Our Environment

We’ve worked hard to make our products greener. Every cup size and lid we offer is made from PET, just like our fruit and chocolate bottles. Our boost jugs also use HDPE for added eco-friendliness.

For those who do not know:

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a widely used versatile plastic. This material is beneficial to the environment because it’s recyclable, conserving resources and reducing waste.

HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) is a sturdy plastic made from petroleum. Its durability means products last longer, so we don’t need to replace them as often, reducing waste. Plus, it’s recyclable, helping to decrease plastic pollution.

The numbers on plastics play a crucial role in recycling. They indicate the type of plastic material the item is made from, which directly relates to its recyclability.

  • Most plastics don’t get recycled due to their chemical compositions, and the cost of recycling them can outweigh the benefits.
  • We use plastics labeled #1 for PET and #2 for HDPE, which are both recyclable. They come at a higher cost, but it’s a price worth paying to protect our planet responsibly.
  • Our bulk packaging delivers 32 servings per bottle, maximizing use and minimizing waste. Once empty, recycle!

Why it’s important to recycle

We encourage recycling to preserve our environment, reduce waste, save energy, meet consumer expectations for sustainability, and comply with regulations. It’s a proactive step towards a healthier planet and a more sustainable future.

We’ve also upgraded to straws that are marine-friendly, biodegradable, and compostable both at home and industrially. Designed for smoothies, they offer the same convenience as traditional straws but are much kinder to the environment—no more puckering!

Helping People. Changing Lives.

Many families struggle to afford even basic food necessities, let alone enjoy a tasty and healthy smoothie. To help, we’ve teamed up with the Bread of Life Outreach organization, a food bank in Newport—right where our headquarters are located—to support local families in need and give back to our community.

Healthy Kids Running Series

  • My wife and I are passionate about fitness—we’re runners, and our young daughters play hockey (we moved to MN). We wanted to encourage healthy activity at an early age, and there were no organized running events for young kids in our new neighborhood.
  • We took on the role of Community Coordinators and partnered with the Healthy Kids Running Series organization. Each Sunday for five weeks in the spring and fall, we organize races for 100-150 kids between the ages of 2 and 12. The little ones are so cute!
  • We have personally been involved since 2015, and DrinkFit proudly supports them as a financial sponsor.
