Tupperware FAQs

Does Tupperware Contain BPA or Polycarbonate?

  • BPA, or Bisphenol A, is a chemical used to create polycarbonate plastic.  Claims exist that BPA can cause health problems due its tendency to mimic  estrogen. Although BPA has been deemed safe for humans, the U.S. Food and Drug  Administration and European Food Safety Authority are currently reviewing this  claim by analyzing more than 800 studies. The Tupperware website states that  less than 10 percent of the company’s products are made from polycarbonate  plastic. Tupperware does not use polycarbonate in any children’s products, and  as of March 2010, the company began to use materials besides polycarbonate in  products for sale in Canada and the U.S

Who Invented Tupperware?

  • Earl Tupper, a chemist for the DuPont company, invented Tupperware in 1945.  Tupper developed the products from polyethylene, a material that was introduced  in 1942. The product became widely popular during the 1940s and 1950s, due to  home salesmen like Thomas Damigella and Brownie Wise who worked for Stanley Home  Products, the corporation that implemented the home party plan, which later came  to be known as the “Tupperware Party.” By 1958, Earl Tupper’s company was so  successful that he was able to sell the corporation and retire for  life.
