For the fourth year, 7-Eleven Inc. is running its “Brands with Heart" event this fall to learn more about new, innovative brands that are potentially a good fit for their stores. And this year, we’re invited! It’s an excellent opportunity for us to join up-and-coming, innovative brands, and introduce our products to 7-Eleven, Speedway, and Stripes.
Mananalu is proud to have been selected by 7-Eleven as a “Brands with Heart”. We were chosen from over 700 applicants to be part of this unique, innovative group of less than 50 brands. At the retailer’s Brands with Heart event in Irving, TX on September 9-10, Mananalu will have a chance to show off our aluminum bottled, purified water to 7-Eleven executive leadership as well as buyers in the beverage industry. Even more exciting: we’ll be sharing Mananalu’s mission to end the single-use plastic waste crisis with our Drink One, Remove One impact program.
Because when you choose a bottle of Mananalu instead of single-use plastic, you’re making a simple swap with a big impact. For every bottle of Mananalu sold, we remove the equivalent of one plastic bottle from ocean-going waste. We call it Drink One, Remove One.
At the Brands with Heart event, we will make our case for why Mananalu belongs on the shelves of 7-Eleven, Stripes, and Speedway. The convenience store giant has more than 13,000 locations in the U.S. and Canada. But 7-Eleven is about more than convenience. The company is creating positive change for its communities and our planet.
“7-Eleven’s Brands with Heart program is a perfect fit for Mananalu,” said Josh Elliott, our Director of Partnerships. “As a purpose-driven brand focused on unplasticing the planet, we know we’ll be in good company at this year’s event.”
An important part of our mission is getting our products to you with the smallest possible carbon footprint. Besides being a carbon neutral company, making sure Mananalu is on shelves across the country is the best way to do just that. In April, Mananalu celebrated its first nationwide retail partnership with Sprouts Farmer’s Market. To find out where else you can grab a Mananalu in a store near you, please go to our Store Locator.
