Why choose Retulp?

Retulp is for yourself, for another and for the planet.
A styslish and durable bottle to keep yourself hydrated.
A water donation of 1000x the content of a bottle to third world countries.
A durable alternative for single-use plastic, to save our oceans and waters from pollution.

Why reusable?

Landfills are filled with single-use plastic. When you use a reusable water bottle you help reduce the production of bottled water and therefore the production of single-use plastic. It may seem that you deliver a very small amount, but you can make a difference!

The Retulp Bottle is built to last, and to offset its own production after only a few refillings. Going reusable will enhance your hydration and unburden the planet from disposable plastic bottles.

Are all Retulp bottles BPA free?

Yes! Our stainless steel bottles are crafted to be as lightweight as aluminium ones, but unlike the latter, 18/8 stainless steel bottles do not need any internal plastic lining that could leach over time, releasing harmful and unhealthy substances such as BPA and phthalates. Our lids and caps are also made from 100% BPA free plastic.

Why are Retulp bottles from 18/8 stainless steel?

We want your bottle tob e neat, stylish and last a lifetime. Stainless steel bottles are safer than plastic and aluminium ones, as they can be filled with any kind of beverage without leaching chemicals. That’s why at Retulp we chose to rely on the dependability of 18/8 stainless steel to craft our high-quality, long-lasting reusable bottles.

How should I clean my Retulp?

Hand wash them in soapy water and a bottlebrush to extend the life of your container’s paint/graphic. drain and dry in your dish rack with the mouth downward so water can drain out. We also recommend an old-fashioned cleaner: diluted vinegar or water and baking soda. Do not scour the surface of your Retulp bottle with steel wool or other abrasive products; it will scratch the stainless steel.

Can I fill my Retulp with acidic beverages, milk, or alcohol?

Yes! Retulp is food-grade stainless steel – so you can fill your Retulp with any of your favorite beverages. You should be careful with carbonated drinks, because the pressure can damage your bottle.

Printing methods

Engraving is a printing method where the design is incised in the bottle. It has a very stylish effect, as there is no colour or inkt used.

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

Pad printing (also called tampography) is a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object. This is accomplished using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process that involves an image being transferred from the cliché via a silicone pad onto a substrate
