In the Netherlands alone, the consumption of plastic bottles is around 1.4 billion units per year.
That is 650 million big bottles and even more small plastic bottles. Per year.

"As consumers, we have so much power to change the world by just being careful with what we buy."
— Emma Watson

Our aim is to replace 10,000 single-use plastic bottles by reusables and remove 100,000kg of plastic from the seas, by the end 2021. That is one busy year ahead of us!!

By buying products in reusable containers, you can join us on our journey of cleaning up our planet. We remove 5 plastic bottles from the ocean for every product you purchase from our shop. The future is Circular, and we're here to prove it!

Partners

The only way to achieve change is to collaborate. To achieve our bold goals, we partner with following organisations:
