Contigo AUTOCLOSE Technology Offers Spill-Proof* Option for Popular Flavor Enhancers and Iced Drinks
CHICAGO, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The future isn't stirred, it's shaken. Whether you like your water infused with MiO, Dasani Drops™, Via® or Crystal Light, today's popular to-go drink packets are forcing consumers to mix their own drinks on the run – increasing demand for throwaway water bottles that are harmful to the environment. Developed to evenly distribute flavor enhancers and quickly/evenly cool down iced beverages, Contigo's new reusable AUTOCLOSE Shake & Go™ Tumbler features a unique "trap door" design that snaps shut when the straw is removed to ensure 100 percent leak-proof shaking and mixing. The result? An easy, eco-friendly way to enjoy popular drinks in your car, at your desk or around town without the mess.
"The instant success of individually-packaged flavor enhancers and mix-ins has left on-the-go consumers without the tools they need to really enjoy them," said Todd Starr, vice president of marketing and product development for Contigo. "Disposable water bottles add unnecessary cost and waste, but to date they have been the best option. Our new Shake & Go Tumbler finally gives consumers a reusable solution for quickly and conveniently mixing one of these popular drinks without worry of making a mess."
According to a survey conducted by Contigo, a leading producer of innovative water bottles and travel mugs, almost half of consumers use mix-in flavors on a weekly basis. The new Shake & Go Tumbler lets consumers shake-to-mix or shake-to-chill beverages with confidence. Using the Shake & Go Tumbler is as simple as "Make it. Shake it. Take it." Simply fill the container with all the ingredients for favorite water enhancers, powdered beverage mixes, iced coffees or iced teas, replace the lid and shake. Once the beverage is "shaken" to perfection, consumers can simply insert the reusable straw right into the tumbler and enjoy in seconds.
Perfectly sized for popular single serve mix-in packets, as well as iced coffees and teas, the Shake & Go Tumbler comes in a 16 oz. size that fits under most single-serve brewers, as well as a taller 20 oz. design. Constructed of FDA-approved, BPA-free Tritan,™ this double wall design keeps beverages colder longer and prevents sweating, while providing superior durability and repelling stains and odors. The entire tumbler is top-rack dishwasher safe.
The Contigo Shake & Go Tumbler launched online at GoContigo.com on September 3, 2013 in 16 oz. and 20 oz. designs, with a suggested retail price of $12.99 and $14.99, respectively. It will be available at Target and Meijer in mid-September in a variety of on-trend hues.
Stylish Fall Accessory for $9.99
In addition to the Shake & Go Tumbler, Contigo will also launch the "wide mouth" Jackson water bottle this fall. The latest smart and stylish water bottle design from Contigo, Jackson has a quick-release button for convenient, one-handed drinking, an integrated carry loop and a wide-mouth drink interface, which allows for quick gulps and chugs. The bottle's split-body design also unscrews to reveal a wide opening in order to easily add ice cubes.
"Reusable water bottles travel alongside consumers as often as their purses or jackets – making their appearance just as important as their function," said Starr. "Jackson's sleek, colorful design and intuitive features make it the ideal on-the-go accessory for those who like a wide mouth spout for easy drinking and refilling."
Jackson's sleek design, convenient carry loop and 24-ounce capacity make it the perfect daily accessory. A quick-release button allows for convenient, one-handing drinking, and a unique locking lid mechanism on Jackson snaps down to ensure 100 percent leak-proof performance between uses and on-the-go.
Constructed of durable FDA-approved, BPA-free Tritan materials, Jackson will stand up to daily errands and workouts with ease. And at the end of the day, Jackson's split-body design is easily cleaned on the top rack of any dishwasher.
Jackson will be available at major retailers and online at GoContigo.com in a variety of on-trend hues in mid-September. For more information about the complete Contigo line, visit www.GoContigo.com.
