HANGING WITH COVL AND THE NEW OUTSIDERS COLLECTION IN MIAMI 05.16.23 Say hello to COVL—a Miami-native and multidisciplinary artist. Inspired by her community, surroundings, and experiences, COVL works across mediums and sees just about anything as a potential canvas. Her use of color and movement is rooted in her vibrant Puerto Rican culture. And COVL isn’t just a name—it stands for Craft, Onward, Versatility and Lifestyle, the four things the artist works to bring to everything she does, showing that you don’t have to be one thing, you can be many. With her connection to color and culture, COVL and the backdrop of the vibrant city of Miami made the perfect subject for Stanley’s "New Outsiders" Color Collection of the summer. Like COVL’s art, the collection is original and authentic, playful and fluid—featuring patterns filled with motion and colors inspired by saturated blues, greens, citrons and sunsets. In other words, “New Outsiders” is right at home in Miami and in the hands of COVL and her community of creators. Stanley joined COVL and friends Naty, Blaire and Aldhair in Miami to talk about her art, influences, growing up there near the ocean and how it all shapes her creativity today. She shared some of her favorite local spots, from Adhair’s art studio to a neighborhood basketball court that has become another unusual canvas for her work. And, of course, the irresistible beaches of Miami where she comes to relax and be inspired. “Creativity for me has always meant that it's problem solving at its core. And if you're able to take an idea from just a really rough sketch all the way to the final execution, I think that itself is creativity.” “My favorite color depends on my mood. Right now, I'm in a green mood. A color that brings a lot of abundance, a color that really exemplifies nature. … I encapsulate or utilize a lot of warm tones like poppy reds, oranges, pinks, because I want people to feel embraced in the work that I do.” “The biggest thing for me is recognizing that to remain creative, I have to also give myself breaks and give myself space to live a life, to breathe, and just to simply be.” “COVL represents the four facets of what my work brings to the table and that's: Craft, Onward, Versatility, and Lifestyle.” “Growing up on Pennsylvania Avenue here in Miami and having access to the ocean has always influenced me to be more fluid, to be more adaptable, and being able to flex my creative muscles.” “I'm just seeing the culture here and the community of creators and artists is something that continuously inspires me because it shows me that our canvas can be anything.” Learn more about COVL here and check out Stanley’s New Outsiders Collection to inspire your summer.

Hydration Tips and Five Tasty Snack Ideas for Children heading Back to School
Guest post by: Onyi Azih @sincerelyonyi 09.26.22 As your child settles back into school, it's important to keep them hydrated and properly fueled for their day ahead. Drinking water helps improve memory, mood and attention. But how do you make sure your child drinks enough water when they're busy with homework and sports practice? That's where Stanley comes in. The IceFlow Flip Straw Water Bottle is perfect for keeping kids, including my son, hydrated during the school day. This is especially important in places like Texas, which is where we call home. The bottle is small enough to fit in any backpack, but big enough for them to enjoy their favorite drink without having to stop and refill the bottle. The ergonomic design makes it easy for your child to hold onto, even if they're not used to carrying around a water bottle! Its built-in flip straw makes sipping simple so your child can seamlessly drink out of their bottle before class starts, while on the playground or after practice ends. The straw snaps shut when not in use, so there's no need to worry about spills or leaks. Given this one is constructed with durable stainless steel, you can rest assured that their water bottle can withstand the test of childhood rough-housing. That's where Stanley comes in.

THE FLOWSTATE(TM) QUENCHER H2.0 TUMBLER 08.29.22 The Quencher H2.0 FlowState(TM) Tumbler collection has arrived, and there’s a lot to cheer about— like the innovative, leak-resistant FlowState™ lid, recycled stainless steel body, and craveable colors. Whatever the day holds, this durable, vacuum-insulated Quencher H2.0 will become your constant hydration companion. Keep it close at work, school or the workout studio. Tuck it into your car’s cup holder for your commute or errands around town. Bring it along to the beach, park or pool. Why “H2.0”? The name is a twist on the chemical formula for water (H2O)—which is ideal for drinkware that’s devoted to keeping you hydrated. Making “H2.0” part of the name also helps differentiate these Quenchers from the original collection. STARTING AT THE TOP: STANLEY’S FLOWSTATE™ LID The FlowState™ lid screws on securely and features a rotating cover with three positions: 1) a straw opening that’s designed to resist splashes with a seal that keeps the reusable straw in place, 2) an opening for sipping or drinking your favorite drinks, and 3) a full-cover top with a silicone seal. Although the design is advanced, the FlowState™ lid is easy to clean. Just pop it on the top rack of your dishwasher or wash it by hand. (Your Quencher H2.0 is dishwasher safe.) AT THE HEART OF EVERY QUENCHER H2.0 As part of Stanley’s commitment to the environment, we constructed our Quencher H2.0 with 90% recycled stainless steel, giving a whole new meaning to reusable drinkware. And you can count on our legendary double-wall insulation to keep your favorite drinks fresh and cold for hours—or iced for a day or more. That’s not all. Every size is thoughtfully designed to comfortably fit your car’s cup holder. 14 oz – Our smallest and lightest Quencher H2.0, this one is perfect for deskside and bedside hydration. It’s also a great size for kids. 20 oz – You’ll appreciate this size for a variety of beverages: ice water, cold brew coffee, iced tea, breakfast smoothies and more. 30 oz – For greater hydration capacity, step up to the 30 oz size. And for easy grab and go, we included an ergonomic, comfort-grip handle with rounded corners. 40 oz – Our largest-sized Quencher H2.0 will keep you seriously hydrated all day long. And just like the 30 oz size, this one features the same ergonomic, comfort-grip handle. Check out our complete Quencher H2.0 lineup, which includes a wide range of nature-inspired shades. Also, keep an eye out for limited-edition seasonal colors. Happy sipping!

Old Stanley VS New Stanley: What’s Really Changed In The Unbreakable Bottle?
Old Stanley VS New Stanley: What’s Really Changed In The Unbreakable Bottle?
The Stanley brand has been in the business a long time. For real. Over a hundred years, to be exact. It was 1913 when William Stanley invented the all-steel, double-wall vacuum bottle and stuck his name on it. Rumor has it, that he wanted his coffee hot all day while he was working, and was inspired to apply some of his theories learned while developing transformers. As it turns out, necessity really is the mother of invention. Since then, the Stanley name has become synonymous for ultra-durable, super reliable products made with an eye for sleek design and real life uses. Generations of people have come to rely on their Stanley bottles, mugs, lunchboxes, cook sets, flasks, growlers, coolers, and more every single day, knowing that they’ll keep their food and drink at temperature longer, all while standing up to life’s wear and tear. Today, Stanley’s Built For Life™ promise means means that your grandad’s thermos that supported pilots in World War II could very well get set beside that brand spankin’ new Classic Vacuum Insulated Bottle you picked up for your weekend camping trip. At first glance, you might be hard-pressed to notice a difference: Same tough construction, same classic look, same Stanley hammertone green finish, although once you pick them up, you’ll be able to tell which is which. So when you’ve been the gold standard for “Unbreakable” for literally generations, one question keeps coming up from our customers who have seen the way Stanley bottles seem to last and last: What’s changed over the years? The answer? Everything and nothing. The Beginning To start out, you have to understand what makes a Stanley a Stanley. When William Stanley invented double-wall steel vacuum insulation all the way back in the Teeming Teens, he set the fundamental groundwork for the technology that would define the company’s reputation for unparalleled performance. At the time vacuum insulated bottles were lined with glass, and they did a fine job keeping coffee hot. That is until one of those suckers got damaged.” Glass in your cup of Joe may ruin your day, but in 1913, the equivalent of having to fork out $150-$200 for a new bottle could ruin your entire month or more. This is where Stanley really came to save the day — with value and durability. One of Stanley’s key innovations was Char-Vac™, where charcoal dust was packed between two stainless steel walls while the vacuum insulation was created. This method made the bottles tougher and more resilient, albeit heavier and bulkier. Stanleys from the time of Char-Vac™ were much coveted and are still in use to this day, with some Stanley fanatics still obsessed with the decades old bottles they bought as teenagers. Stanley discontinued use of Char-Vac™ in 2009, opting instead to thicken the outer steel wall. This resulted in a bottle that was significantly lighter weight and built to the same industry- leading specs. But if we’re keeping it real, then we have to say that the old bottles were built to handle some damn good abuse. A level of tough that our newer Classic Series bottles can’t always compete with. This is why we introduced the Master Series in 2017. It’s designed for the people who need the over-the-top durability of the previous Char-Vac™ model and, the new Quad-Vac™ technology means it’ll keep your drinks hot for days. Other innovations were implemented over the years as we constantly tweaked our formula. Bottle necks were widened for easier filling and cleaning. We switched up the kind of stainless steel we use to make our bottles far more resistant to corrosion. We found ways to reduce body welds, reduce the number of potential fail points. Old Vs. New: Which Bottle Is Better? All of these little changes were and are part of the same obsessive hunt for perfection we’ve had from the beginning. William Stanley invented something amazing all the way back in 1913- and we’ve continued to improve on what made our bottles great to begin with, thermal insulation and unprecedented durability.The new Quad-Vac™ technology used in the Master Series collection is unrivaled in a marketplace of look-a-likes. The conversation of which bottle is better - the new Stanley bottle or the old Stanley bottle - is always coming up. The truth: neither is better than the other, because they’re both Stanleys. The new bottles are part of a constant evolution, of never being satisfied. Like every great inventor the pursuit of perfection never stops. The Stanley name is more than a single product or process, it’s a promise to the people who have come to rely on us for years: we make bottles that last a lifetime. That’s why, whether it's a Stanley you bought in 1965 or one you picked up just yesterday, we will always honor our lifetime warranty to make sure that every product is as reliable and durable as the day you bought it.   ABOUT STANLEY
