Tervis to give away 10,000 tumblers if you pledge to #takeyourTervis

In an effort to promote sustainability, Venice-based Tervis will give away 10,000 tumblers in Florida to people who sign a #takeyourTervis pledge to stop using disposable plastic cups.

The special ocean-themed double-wall plastic tumbler will be available only at retail stores in the Sunshine state on one day only — Sept. 27.

Local outlets offering the giveaway:

  • Tervis Outlet store, 928 S. Tamiami Trail, Osprey.
  • St. Armands store, 319 John Ringling Boulevard, Sarasota.

Other earth-friendly promotions offered include donating $1 from every Guy Harvey “Live Blue” tumbler through the end of 2018 to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to support research by Mote Marine Laboratory to help combat red tide.

Tervis is also selling $20 4ocean bracelets, which will go toward removing one pound of plastic trash from the ocean and coastlines for each purchaser.
