Dopper Reusable Water Bottle


Dopper founder and CEO Merijn Everaarts felt compelled to develop a new type of reusable water bottle after watching a documentary about the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” that is roughly twice the size of the U.S. After holding a design competition to find the perfect reusable bottle for drinking water, Everaarts selected a design by Delft Univeristy of Technology alumnus Rinke van Remortel. The bottle comes apart to be easily cleaned and features a built-in cup that also doubles as a stand.

The original version of the Cradle to Cradle-certified water bottle is made of polyproplyene (for the bottle and the cap), ABS plastic for the white cup, TPE for the sealing rings in the cap and the cup, and Bisphenol A, a plasticizer that may leach from its material and enter the food chain. A steel version of the bottle, which will be available in a few months, replaces the polypropylene with steel and does not contain any Bisphenol A. The bottle is produced in Holland with a net zero carbon footprint.
