The vanlife trend might be relatively new but Stanley certainly isn’t. This brand has been around for over 100 years, since William Stanley Jr. first introduced vacuum insulation with stainless steel way back in 1913.
While Stanley’s designs have become more sleek and their products more varied, they’ve stuck with that same time-tested construction ever since. Why fix what isn’t broken?
Stanley is also one of our favorite eco friendly outdoor gear brands with the guiding motto “Build For Life”. One of the best ways to achieve a more eco friendly vanlife is by selecting well-made and lasting products rather than cheap or disposable ones.
They write, “The most sustainable products are the kind that never need to be thrown away or replaced. That’s why we’ve been building durable and reusable bottles for over 100 years. And we make them from steel, which, if you’re wondering, is one of the most recyclable materials on the planet. This has enabled us to cut down on the need for disposable products, which means — you guessed it — less junk in landfills.”
Without further ado, let’s “grab life by the bottle” and show off our #Stanleyness by taking you some of the best Stanley products for vanlife and road dwelling in general.
