I have several empty tubes if you are still looking for empty zip fizz tubes. I read your previous posts, and if you are ok with it, I would like to ship a few boxes worth of empty zip fizz tubes to you (PO BOX 851943 Richardson TX 75085). They are being stored in large plastic gallon bags now, if you want, I can see about keeping the boxes/inserts as well in the future.
I am surprised that Zip Fizz doesn't promote similar recycling programs on their website. I found this forum (yay!) after a bit of searching. I look forward to helping your cause.
I fill empty Zipfizz tubes with an assortment of reminders to trigger the memory of someone who may be off their regular routine or very stressed: that is when people forget that they have a child or pet in the car. I give them away: hopefully some lives will be saved. It is hard to believe that someone could leave a child or pet (or handicapped or elderly) in a hot car, but almost 40 children die in a hot car every year (every month except January). I need all the empty (or full) Zipfizz tubes I can find so that I can fill them up and hand them out. Thanks so much. PSMy PO Box is 851943, Richardson TX 75085
Hi SueC1! That is such a sweet and thoughtful thing of you to do!!! I love the Zipfizz product, but think their containers are the most stupid and wasteful thing ever. Not to mention, they are a pain in the butt to open, especially if in a rush! So I'm delighted that someone has found a way to put these stupid things to a wonderful use! I have been saving mine and have told my husband to do the same, so I have a couple of boxes worth of empty containers. We actually live in North Dallas (The Village)! (I used to work in RISD!!) Is there a way I can physically drop them off to you? Would be easier than mailing. Thanks!
Thank you for your reply, SueC1! I still have to drink a few more before I can deliver the Zipfizz boxes to you. So I'll give you a call when I'm ready to hand them over. Also, my husband and I have a couple of friends who drink Zipfizz, so we will tell them to save their containers too (not sure if they've been saving them so far). I'll be in touch! Thanks again!
I have a box of empty containers of Zip Fizz as well if anyone is interested. I can be contacted at email@example.com. Art
Hello SueC1. I have a whole box and half of zipfiz containers to sell you. If you are still interested. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I sure do need them! Thank you so much! My suicide prevention project has been on hold because I don't have nearly enough Zipfizz tubes. One of our suicide hotlines was closed down, and I want to make sure the other one gets enough donations to stay active. I'm using them for a fundraising project.
My address: Sue Clark, PO Box 851943, Richardson, TX 75085. Do you have any suggestions for getting those stubborn labels off? I have bought everything known to man and still some are stuck on there. I'm a therapist and my website is TherapyOnLocation.com. Let me know how much I owe you and where to send it.
I need as many as I can round up. Too bad I recently started saving them because I've been drinking two a day for at least six years, could never think of what to do with them.
Thanks for your kindness and for contacting me....and for recycling. I have no idea where to post my requests for Zipfizz tubes. Unfortunately, the Zipfizz corporation has been NO help whatsoever. Customer service is not important to them, I guess; nor suicide prevention. Too Bad.
Hi SueC, I just found your post. I work outdoors and use a lot of zip fizz during the summer, and always feel bad about throwing the containers away. Do you still have use for them? I'd be happy to stay collecting them for you, I'd only ask for shipping expenses.
