Hip, a new housewares manufacturer, is introducing design-focused new products such as water bottles, coffee cups and lunch totes to tackle the issue of single-use and disposable plastics.
The company is offering bottles, coffee and glass cups and straws. All of the products are created with a focus on reusable materials and to help provide new solutions to single-use and disposable plastics.
The initial product that launched, the Hip bottle, is designed to resemble a flask and is made of clear, BPA- and BPS-free Tritan plastic. This is said to give the 22-ounce flask glass-like clarity and makes it lightweight. The company designed the bottle to be slim so it can be tossed in a handbag or briefcase easily. It also features a colored silicone band at the bottom and a cap and loop, which offers easy gripping.
Hip is also committed to helping to support Healthy Harbor, an organization that uses new technology to harness the power of water and sunlight to intercept single-use plastics from local waterways.
