Made in USA BPA-Free 24 oz. Aluminum Bottle

23 Mar

24oz US Aluminum Bottle - BPA FREE - Made in USA. Imprint done as full wrap around the bottle. Union Bug added to art.

I was at an ASI show in Dallas last week when I came across that rarest of all promotional items, the Made in USA 24 oz. Aluminum Bottle.

The bottles on display were from Huffermen Incorporated and it was explained to me that not only is the Huffermen USA 24 oz. Aluminum Bottle made in the USA, it is made at a Union plant and can be imprinted with a Union Bug.

This is a big deal.

Most aluminum bottles on offer in the US are made overseas. So that is a large carbon footprint, more energy, etc., to bring into the USA. Plus the Made in USA fact really applies to many audiences.

How US friendly is the USA 24 oz. Aluminum Bottle? Well the bottle actually qualifies for the MADE in USA CERTIFIED™ Seal. According to the Huffermen, “To establish qualification for the MADE in USA CERTIFIED™ Seal, or PRODUCT of USA CERTIFIED™ Seal, products must be fully audited by an independent team and certified as having all or virtually all of their core components manufactured or grown in the United States of America. Additionally, 100% of their assembly must be verified as conducted in the U.S. A.  (Also known as “substantial transformation” according to the Buy American Act).”

Again, this is a big deal.

So for organizations getting ready for marketing at 4th of July events, I would say your bottle is here. Same for marketing projects that target unions or state government or federal employees or US car brands or indeed any US manufacturer – really the ability to offer a USA, union-made bottle is a big deal. If promoting a US organization or manufacturer, you really should be doing so with a US made bottle. (And please don’t get me started on the uses for this bottle come 2012 election cycle.)

The Huffermen USA 24 oz. Aluminum Bottle comes in red, white, blue, and brushed aluminum. The bottles run 10.75” H x 2.5” diameter with a 3” W x 6.5” H per side or 7” W x 6.5” H for wrap imprint area. (Setup charges include 1 Side, 2 Sides or a Wrap Imprint, so I say go with the wrap folks). With a wrap you can pretty much print the entire bottle.

According to Huffermen, the BPA-Free lining of these bottles – unlike stainless steel, all aluminium bottles have a lining – is not only BPA-Free but of a similar manufacture to the lining in everyday aluminum soda and beer cans.

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of Proforma Simonetta Freelance, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Huffermen has now introduced two sizes of sports bottles which they claim will biodegrade in 1 – 5 years in a managed landfill. The 20oz ECO20 and 28oz ECO28 bottles are made of HDPE.  They contain an additive to the resin that makes them biodegradable in a normal landfill situation.  The cap is also biodegradable.
