By choosing Dopper you're fighting plastic pollution with the world's most sustainable bottle. Here's the proof.

Digital Product Passport (DPP)

In April 2024, we launched our Digital Product Passport (DPP), an industry-first. With the DPP, we invite you to track your product's complete journey, from inception to delivery to end-of-life. Key features of the DPP include material origin, product footprint, and durability information.

The DPP represents a commitment to sustainability and a pledge to lead the way into a circular economy. Virginia Yanquilevich, our CEO: “We’re taking greater accountability in the products we create. By inviting consumers to embark on a journey of discovery with us, we hope to inspire meaningful action towards sustainable consumption."

Cradle to Cradle Certified®

For nearly a decade, we've been working with the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute to make sure that from design to end of life, every Dopper bottle is made with the highest regard for the planet.

  • In 2022, we became the first and only company to have our full assortment (incl. accessories) Cradle to Cradle Certified®.
  • The Dopper Insulated, Steel and Glass are currently Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze. The accessories are Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver.

Certified Carbon Neutral company

Since 2022, we are a Certified Carbon Neutral company. We've reduced our carbon emissions as much as we currently can, and officially compensate the remainder. For example:​

  • Our sea transportation is carbon neutral thanks to the GoodShipping program. ​
  • Webshop orders in the Netherlands are delivered by bicycle courier in 60 cities, saving an estimated 1,000 kgs of carbon emissions ​
    per year. ​
  • The Dopper Original is produced in a factory that runs on 100% renewable energy​.
  • Our HQ is a sustainably renovated monument in Haarlem that runs on 100% renewable energy.

To offset what we do emit, we work with a certified sequestration program. Meaning we invest in long-term projects that will continue to absorb carbon from the atmosphere in the future.

Clean drinking water projects

Access to water is a human right. Yet an estimated 1 in 10 people worldwide can’t just turn on the tap. In Nepal, the Himalayas offer one of the largest freshwater reservoirs in the world. Yet due to a lack of infrastructure, 24.3 million Nepalis don't have access to basic water services.

That’s why every Dopper bottle sold contributes to the work of our two main partners in Nepal: Dutch NGO Simavi and Kathmandu-based social enterprise SmartPaani. Together, we offer education, raise awareness and kick-start (drinking) water projects in different areas of the country

Dopper Wave movement

In 2020, we launched an international movement that’s banning single-use water bottles, to stop them from entering our waters: the Dopper Wave. Over 7,000 individuals and nearly 900 organisations have already signed the pledge, promising to:

1. Ban single-use plastic water bottles
2. Drink from the tap whenever they can
3. Always bring their own reusable bottle
4. Encourage others to join the Dopper Wave too

Together, the more than 1.1 million drops in our Dopper Wave movement are forming a wave with enough impact to actually save our oceans. ​

Designed to last

To move towards a circular economy, we need to already think about the end of life of a product when we create it. The three-part design of the Dopper bottle doesn't just create a bottle and cup in one. It also extends the life of the bottle, and the materials used.

  • The separate parts can easily be cleaned, so you don't end up with a smelly bottle you can't use.
  • Lost or broken part? We offer spare parts in our shop so you only replace what you need.
  • Where possible, each separate part consists of one material only. That way you get separate material streams fit for mechanical recycling.

Take-back program

In 2021, our first ever take-back program became a reality. In collaboration with Dutch retail chain WAAR, we’re taking responsibility for the old, damaged or unused Dopper bottles that are gathering dust in cupboards around the Netherlands.

Because a Dopper bottle at the end of its life can be turned into valuable raw material for new products. We’re currently in the exploratory phase with our recycling partner.

The more you know about a problem, the better you can fix it. It's why we've invested in awareness and education about plastic pollution from day one.

We empowered kids all over the world with the Changemaker Challenge Junior, we help Dopper Wave partners inspire their teams with a tailor-made education program, share our story during free stagetime sessions, organise cleanups for our community and help people find tap water through Google Maps.


Green Product Award

The Dopper Glass, the first reusable glass bottle to ever be Cradle to Cradle Certified®Bronze, is the proud winner of a Green Product Award 2021.

The Awards received 1,461 submissions from 51 countries. And our Dopper Glass blew the competition out of the water in the consumer goods category, proving what we've known all along: it's a winning combination of design, quality and functionality. Without ever compromising on sustainability.

Product development

Ever wished there were endless Dopper bottle colours to choose from? Or that we’d make one with glitters? We get it. But we won't.

Like everything else we do, our colour and assortment choices are based on sustainability. We won't produce certain colours, because the pigments don't work for the environment. We won't offer you 50 colour options, because we don't support overproduction and -consumption.

The same goes for other material choices. We don't make our steel bottle parts from aluminium, because that requires an extra lining on the inside, making it much more difficult to recycle.
