Company Description

U Konserve offers re-usable containers, including insulated cups, straws, food wraps, and ice packs, among many other items, for daily use.

U Konserve is dedicated to helping to change consumer behavior, and ultimately help the planet. The company’s products are re-usable, with U Konserve estimating that its stainless steel straw sales have helped keep approximately 74 million plastic straws out of landfills and water ways to date. The company is also experimenting with introducing reusable taster cups at food product expos. As a member of 1% for the Planet, U Konserve donates 1% of annual sales to non-profit organizations focused on benefitting the environment.

U Konserve founders Lynn Julian and Chance Claxton were inspired to create their company when they discovered it was a struggle to be environmentally conscious as their families grew. With the realization that their and others’ children’s school lunch packs – filled with plastic baggies, drink cartons, and single-use containers – were destined for the landfill, they got to work creating more than eight categories of products that would encourage new, sustainable habits from home.
