led by purpose
Onegreenbottle was started in 2006 when I was looking for a drinks bottle for my son to take to school each day. I had worked as an industrial chemist in Europe and Asia and was aware of the chemical composition of plastics and how readily compounds could leach into drinks. I identified 304 grade stainless steel as the most inert, safe and toxin free material around and started buying bottles and lunchboxes for friends and family.
Huge amounts of plastic single use bottles are thrown into landfill or our oceans each year. Plastic takes 500yrs to decompose. In the Ocean it breaks down into plastic microparticles that are ingested by marine creatures and sealife. We can all make a big difference by not buying single use plastic bottles. Each plastic bottle of water takes around 2 cups of oil to manufacture, it can leach harmful, toxic chemicals into your drink, it could have been in that bottle for up to 5 years and it could have traveled thousands of miles to get to your supermarket. We only recycle a fraction of disposed plastics. Stainless steel bottles are proven to be the healthiest choice of beverage container.
IT’S GOOD BEING GREEN
Good for all life. Better for our planet, best for your life and if you look after your bottle it will have a long life. Our amazing customers have saved billions of single use plastic water bottles from entering our oceans or landfill plus we have committed to removing 25 plastic bottles from ocean bound rubbish for every single bottle sold.
We are making caps from recycled, discarded fishing nets and sea-harvested plastics and we have a zero plastic supply chain. Over 60% of the plastic pollution originates in Asia/Pacific where a huge portion of this is production by-product. Where you can, ask your suppliers to aim for zero plastic supply chains – it would have an enormous effect on plastic waste.
We are officially a Certified B-Corporation – our organisation conforms to the highest levels of social and environmental requirements. We are purpose led and purpose focused, through and through, green by design.
Thankyou for choosing us and thankyou for choosing to reuse
Our mission is to provide sustainable alternatives to the most problematic single use items. We do this with integrity with a product range that is good to the core. Our suppliers pass social and environmental compliance audits, BCSI, ISO9001 and ISO14001 plus independent and accredited testing for product safety FDA, LFGB and EN14350.
Our route to market is as environmentally respectful as possible. All of our products have zero plastic packaging and our supply chain is free from single use plastics.
In 2020 we officially became ‘Plastic Positive’ as part of an impact program to extract plastic pollution from our oceans and to help reduce poverty. For every single bottle we sell we remove 25 single use plastic bottles from the ocean. Each onegreenbottle can then be used for years and years and replace thousands of single use plastic bottles during its lifetime. Read about our commitment to responsible supply here
Onegreenbottle was created out of a need to find a drinking bottle that kept water clean, safe and pure. We are concerned about chemicals leaching into our drinks from plastics, the eternal problem of disposing of huge amounts of plastics and plastic debris in the environment. Stainless steel is a food grade product, tested and trusted by the food and beverage industries. It is easy to clean, toxin free, non leaching, odour and taste free, recyclable and robust for continued usage.
Great bottle design using only 304 grade (18/8) stainless steel means our products are reliable, durable and certified free from any harmful toxins. Our sports caps are made from BPA/BPS free non leaching polypropylene. All products are ultimately recyclable
Painted bottles could chip or peel over time so invest in a ‘nude’ bottle or a bottle jacket if you don’t want a rugged look. If your bottle gets a few dents, dings or scratches over time we think it adds to character. Our bottles have no linings or internal coatings so dings and dents have no affect on your drink quality
