Responsibly Supplied Drinks Bottles

Certified B-Corp - reusable drinks bottles.

Verified highest standard of eco-performance

We are a Certified B-Corporation – Verified as meeting the highest standards in social and environmental performance and accountability.

onegreenbottle is committed to helping to create a clean environment and the minimisation of our global reliance on single use plastics.

We have pioneered the manufacture and use of ocean harvested discarded fishing nets for use making our sports caps and continue to investigate the most planet-efficient processes for our products. It is many times more expensive to harvest and recycle ocean plastic than to purchase new plastic. The more businesses that take ownership of using recycled materials will drive the manufacturing costs down and give value to collecting plastic materials. We use BPA/BPS free polypropylene for our sports caps. Our caps pass FDA and EN14350 safety tests

Although we are manufacturing a product, this product will go on to have a net positive planet impact, will be carbon neutral within a couple of weeks of use and we commit 1% of our turnover to Carbon removal.

Zero plastic supply chain, zero plastic packaging

We also put huge amounts of work and effort into making our supply chain single-use plastic free. It isn’t sexy or marketable but it is hugely important and was a big win for us to achieve. Our products have been packaged without single use plastics for over 10 years but we have gone further than this and audited our entire supply chain to remove single use plastics. It is cheaper for the manufacturing process to wrap bottles in single use plastic bags rather than to create clean room conditions or to package in plastic rather than to handle more carefully and with greater consideration. We have engineered in systems and processes to remove reliance on single use plastics.

We reclaim 50 plastic bottles from the ocean with each bottle sold!

For every single bottle we sell we recover 50 single use plastic bottles from the ocean.  We are proud to be an Impact Partner of Plastic Bank – we are helping to fund the infrastructure to manage plastic waste properly around the globe.

Over a billion single use plastic bottles saved!

We have calculated that our amazing customers have already saved over 10 billion single use plastic bottles from going into landfill or into our oceans since we began over 17 years ago* through purchasing our stainless steel reusable bottles. If they are looked after, our bottles can go on for years and years and when you are finally ready to say goodbye, they are 100% recyclable. We are proud to be Ocean Stewards – plastic bank impact partners.

All of our products are shipped with zero plastic packaging and as an organisation we endeavour to become a zero waste company. Any waste we do produce is recycled.

Single use plastic bottles used for bottled water and smoothies are made from PET that can only be recycled once or twice. Only a fraction of plastic bottles put into recycling actually get recycled. Reduced reliance on single use plastic is a great step towards sustainable living

*If a person, on average, uses 252 single use plastic bottles each year and that person converts to a stainless steel reusable bottle with a lifetime on average of 5years. Pacific Institute. “Fact Sheet: Bottled Water and Energy – Getting to 17 Million Barrels.” December 2007.

Make the switch to BPA-free bottles and hydrate with confidence knowing that you’re making a safe and responsible choice for your health and well-being. With their lightweight, durable, and non-toxic construction, our bottles offer the perfect combination of safety and convenience, allowing you to enjoy refreshing hydration wherever life takes you.

Designed in Brighton

Our office is based in Shoreham Port in Brighton. The port is one of only 11 working ‘eco-ports’ in Europe.

We design our products and coordinate the supply of products from our UK hub but also maintain logistics throughout Europe, Asia, UAE and USA. We challenge ourselves to find better ways to supply responsibly, ethically and with a balanced carbon output

European manufacturing base – Technology transfer/investment: We regularly look for UK/European manufacturing bases for our products. So far we have not been able to identify any genuine UK/European stainless steel bottle manufacturing base. Our Impact statement and strategic plan drive us forward to look for alternatives or improve the existing supply base. We are already manufacturing caps from Ocean plastic and will be utilising recycled stainless steel for our bottles during 2024.

Sustainable warehousing

Our new warehouse is state of the art and offers the best in Green Fulfilment. Outbound emissions account for a large part of the carbon footprint of our bottles so we are using zero emission and carbon neutral delivery partners. The warehouse is zero plastic waste and uses sustainable materials throughout.

Bottles with Purpose

We are far from perfect. We believe that we (and all organisations) should continually strive towards reducing environmental impact. Part of our B-Corp Certification is to provide an impact statement each year and to improve year on year.

Measurement of fossil fuel/renewable energy used in production and goal towards sustainable energy source: China has some of the most advanced plans to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduction of the waste of energy through it’s transportation. We will work with environmental groups to develop a best-practise environmental plan to identify what we can and should be doing.

100% use of recycled materials in products: We are making our sports caps from ocean harvested, recycled polypropylene. The plastic we use for our new sports caps is from ocean harvested fishing nets and bottle caps. We are really proud to be an Impact partner with Plastic Bank and to support their goal of creating long term infrastructure and solutions to properly waste manage. In 2024, all of our stainless steel will be recycled stock.

To improve products to minimise waste/prolong product life whilst using safe and toxin free materials: If you look after your onegreenbottle it can last for years and years. Some of our favourite people have extremely battered bottles and are proud of how much their bottle has travelled and been refilled. We want our bottles to be durable and endure and although they can take a bit of rough and tumble they are not indestructible.

This ensures BPA/BPS non leaching food safe materials and that there are no impurities, contaminants or toxins.

Bottles with Purpose

All of our products are shipped by Sea. Our seafreight partner  is leading the way in environmentally responsible shipping with proactive efforts in the 4 key areas:

Emissions reduction

Marine biodiversity conservation

Sustainable management of resources

Environmental promotion

Seafreight accounts for a fraction of the carbon emissions of airfreight and OOCL has taken the additional measures to negate the environmental impact of shipping. Our award-winning shipping organisation is committed to taking actions and formulating the relevant initiatives to protect the biodiversity and marine environment.

Single-use plastics have been linked to many serious health issues and single-use plastic is a devastating environmental problem.

Only a tiny fraction gets recycled. Choosing a reusable product is an easy swap that has a big effect.
