HOW DID WE COME UP WITH THE NAME "TUBTRUGS®"?
Trubtugs, trogtubs, tribtops, rugtubs…we’ve heard ‘em all. But there is a story behind the name Tubtrug®.
After developing the beloved two-handled flexible tub in 1997, we didn’t know what to call it! And how do you sell a product without a name?
Everyone knows what a "tub" is, and our super-flexible, ultra-durable use-it-for-everything container obviously fit that description. However, our tub was more than just a "tub", so we left it to our milkman, Bigfinger. Yep, you read that right.
Bigfinger (called that because his hands are like a bunch of bananas) made a delivery as we were wrestling with this naming conundrum and gave us the word "trug". A trug is a shallow basket made of slats of wood used in England gardens. With a little glue and elbow-grease we fit the two words together, and viola! — Tubtrugs®!
A lot has change since our humble beginnings in 1997, but the name and quality has remained. Tubtrugs® are now sold on 6 continents (our apologies if you live in Antarctica, perhaps you can have a loved one send you one).
Tubtrugs® have been copied too many times to count, but always prevail without because we care enough to continue to make the best two-handled, super-flexible, ultra-durable tub on the planet. And we will not rest in our efforts until every man, woman and child on the planet has hold of one. Tubtrugs®—Use Them For Everything!
