SEATTLE, WA – November 17, 2009 – Due to renewed concern over Bisphenol-A (BPA) in reusable containers this past fall, PMI, owner of iconic reusable food and beverage brand Stanley, announces today that their Stanley eCycle Exchange will be accepting ALL reusable containers at OR Winter Market this January.All reusables, regardless of whether or not they contain BPA and regardless of whether or not they are made from plastic or metal, will be collected and exchanged for a new Stanley mug or stainless steel water bottle.

 Originally designed as a way to raise awareness about the possibilities of recycling while helping our industry dispose of polycarbonate plastic bottles in an environmentally friendly way the Stanley eCycle Exchange has been overwhelmingly popular preventing approximately 3,000 bottles (70,000 lbs of polycarbonate material) from hitting landfills.Now collecting all reusables ranging from polycarbonate to aluminum, PMI expects this Winter’s Exchange to be one of their most successful yet.

“We know people are confused and we wanted to offer a solution everyone can easily understand.Collecting everything is a simple way to continue to provide a service to our industry, keep waste from hitting landfills and highlight the many benefits of reusing and recycling,” explains JoAnne Anderson, marketing manager for the Stanley brand.

The items collected will be sorted and taken to local Salt Lake City recyclers and turned into other goods such as car parts like dashboards and glove boxes.

The exchange is open to all show attendees.Individuals simply need to bring their reusable bottle to the show, drop it off at one of the collection locations, and in exchange they will get a new Stanley Recycled & Recyclable Mug or Stanley Stainless Steel Water Bottle (photo at right).Those who do not bring a mug can still receive a mug or water bottle by making a $10 donation to the Conservation Alliance.

Stanley eCycle Exchange collection stations will be at the Stanley Booth (Booth #21017) and the east entrance of the Salt Palace Convention Center (top of the escalators) throughout the duration of the show.Collection will also take place at the All Mountain Demo within the Stanley booth and on opening day, January 21 during 10am – 12noon in the Backcountry Village.Free coffee will be served at both locations.
