Onegreenbottle was created out of a need to find a drinking bottle that kept water clean, safe and pure. Heather Nicholson founded the company in 2006 after being concerned about chemicals leaching into 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.
The mission is to provide sustainable alternatives to the most problematic single use items. This is done with integrity. With a product range that is good to the core. Our suppliers pass social and environmental compliance audits, ISO9001 and product quality tests and our route to market is as environmentally respectful as possible. All our product have zero plastic packaging and this year we hope to achieve zero carbon emission status. We are currently working on a project to harvest plastic from the oceans – stay tuned for updates on this exciting project.
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 and components 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.
Heather started onegreenbottle over 14 years ago whilst by looking for a drinks bottle for her son to take to school each day. With a background as a research chemist and knowledge of the chemical composition of plastics, she identified 304 grade stainless steel as the most inert, safe and toxin free material around.
Huge amounts of plastic single use bottles are thrown into landfill or our oceans each year. Plastic takes 500yrs to decompose but does break down into microplastics which get into our food chain and can cause harm to marine creatures. 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 travelled thousands of miles to get to your supermarket. We only recycle a small fraction of disposed plastics. The plastic rubbish that we are producing each day is horrifying, the simple swaps to reusables can have an active impact. Stainless steel bottles are proven to be the healthiest choice of beverage container.
