Turtlebacks are all-terrain drink holders that prevent drink spills at the beach, picnics, camping, tailgating and everywhere else.

Hey Kickstarter!

My name is Ryan Housley and I’m the co-inventor of Turtlebacks.  Turtlebacks are the world's first all-terrain drink holders. They prevent drink spills at the beach, picnics, camping, tailgating and everywhere else.

The idea for Turtlebacks came to me after spilling my drink at a family picnic.  You’ve most likely experienced this issue as well; trying to nestle your drink in the grass, only to watch it spill moments later.  Even if you find a level surface, your drink never seems to survive long before it's knocked over.  Turtlebacks' unique patented design secures your drink on any terrain.

Our goal for this project is to make a second generation Turtleback that is both environmentally friendly and receptive to larger drinks. As an outdoor product, Turtlebacks can be misplaced and end up in the ecosystem. We don’t believe this is a common occurrence as Turtlebacks are not leave-behind items. However, we want to limit any impact we have on the environment. We have identified a bioscience company that manufacturers a specific type biodegradable plastic that will degrade in the water as well as land. This new bio-material will ensure that Turtlebacks leave no negative footprint in the environment. We also want to widen the mouth of the Turtleback to accept larger drinks. In order to achieve this goal, we need your help to purchase a new mold and biodegradable material.

I appreciate the opportunity to present Turtlebacks to you and hope you’ll consider joining our team!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Moving the manufacturing from China to the U.S. will dramatically reduce our risks and challenges but there will always be potential obstacles. Quality control may be an issue because we're using a new material, mold and facility. We have done everything we can to ensure the product will be made from the same quality material.
