MiiR Climate+ Line Minimizes Environmental Impact

News of climate change is all around, and many consumer goods companies are making their own changes to minimize their inherent impact on the planet. An excellent recent example of a new offering by an existing brand is the MiiR Climate+ line, which consists of a 12-ounce tumbler, 16-ounce tumbler, and 20-ounce wide-mouth bottle.


The Climate+ line is an example of MiiR’s commitment to give more and take less—changing how business operates, from sourcing to design and quality of life. Like other MiiR products, the Climate+ items are made of BPA-free ultralight 18/8 stainless steel, but the Climate+ line utilizes 25 percent less stainless steel. All plastic sourced for the tumbler and bottle lids is food-safe and 100 percent recycled and recyclable, and no new plastics are used. All those changes have been made while maintaining double-wall vacuum insulation.


The Climate+ items also have a carbon footprint offset of 110 percent. In 2021, MiiR developed a company-specific action plan to help the brand drive down emissions across its entire supply chain. With the guidance of Climate Neutral, the Outdoor Industry Alliance, and the Science-Based Targets Initiative, MiiR has calculated its footprint and has set targets in line with the Paris Agreements 1.5d Celsius threshold target.


The silver color in this line has a “fingerprint-resistant” satin finish (meaning less smudges) and the black color has a durable Hardshell powder coat, which I’ve found is a little more grippy when you have wet hands.


Tumbler lids have a slide open/close tab that doesn’t lock and is easily opened by your thumb of finger for one-handed drinking.


The Climate+ Tumbler comes in silver and black colors in both 12-ounce ($24.95) and 16-ounce ($29.95) sizes, and the Climate+ 20-ounce Wide-Mouth Bottle comes in those same colors and lists for $39.95—all on the MiiR site.
