ROCHESTER, N.Y. (April 9, 2008) – Nalgene® is well-regarded for its originality and ability to make bottles and containers crafted with very specific end uses in mind.

From polycarbonate and polyethylene to stainless steel (by Guyot Design) and Eastman Tritanâ„¢ copolyester, Nalgene Choice showcases the entire Nalgene product line based on the bottles’ intended use, type of material, recycling information, temperature ratings and microwaveability.

Today, the company also unveiled its Everyday line, an assortment of bottles manufactured with Tritan copolyester. The line includes favorites such as the OTG (“On the Go”), the iconic 32-ounce Wide Mouth, and the Grip-N-Gulp sippy cup. Tritan is impact resistant, dishwasher safe and durable. It also withstands a wide range of temperatures and does not contain BPA. The new Everyday product line will be available in stores this week and at later this spring.

“We’ve never been about one style of bottle or one type of material. We offer more than 8 different product lines in 7 different materials – the largest bottle offering on the market today,” said Eric Hansen, senior marketing manager, Nalgene Outdoor. “Consumers can now use the information available through Nalgene Choice to easily find the perfect bottle that fits their needs, from our classic bottles to the newest Everyday Tritan options.”
