It seems everyone is carrying around a water bottle today. And it’s not just the gym bunnies showing off their hydration credentials. Increasing attention is being focussed on single -use plastics, particularly the amounts that end up in the ocean. Doing our bit means investing in and choosing a reusable water bottle. So, what water bottle is the best when it comes to sustainability? Which water bottles can be recycled? Not all water bottles are made the same. Many contain harmful chemicals such as BPA and the producers care very little about their environmental and social impact. That’s why Dopper as the perfect water bottle for the eco-conscious.
It’s fun, colourful and their water bottles come with a cup disguised as a cap. Another attachment makes it the ideal water bottle for the gym, for running or for the office. Designed by the Dutch designer, Rinke Van Remortel, they come in plastic and steel versions. The stainless steel bottle is perfect when thinking about which water bottle keeps water the coldest. It also eliminates the question of water bottle vs hydro flask. So what’s so special about Dopper bottles I hear you say?
As well as being a water bottle without BPA, the company that produces it truly cares about the environment. The Dopper Foundation supports clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene in third world countries. They are very active in Nepal where 11% of the population lacks access to clean drinking water. On top of that, the bottles are produced with zero-carbon impact in the Netherlands. Dopper says “the message is in the bottle” and that message is of sustainability.
So, what did I think of the Dopper? It’s unique, it’s practical, and it’s above all fashionable. When I bought a bottle for my daughter, I instantly fell in love with the design. Often, I wonder why some water bottles smell bad. The three elements to this bottle instead are easy to put together and take apart making it is a much better for cleaning. There has clearly been a lot of thought and care gone into creating this product.

That’s exactly what Flaminia did after buying the nat-2™ Prime Chelsea Boots.
“Wow! I love them! This is the first pair of ‘eco’ boots that I’ve ever owned, and I’m officially a fan. Personally, I really like how soft and stylish they are. They’ll be great for the spring and summer festivals.”
Being the proud mother of two boisterous kids, I’ve gone through my fair share of t-shirts. Most of them wound up in the trash or crumpled up in the back of the kid’s closets. It’s probably awful for me to admit, but the carbon footprint of all those cheap, disposable tops must be off the scale.
