It all started with a shared passion for water and, combined with expertise in packaging, it developed into a common goal of making the world a little better with meaningful water bottles.
At aboutwater, we combine over 70 years of experience in the packaging industry and drinking water supply.
From the combination of this knowledge and the enthusiasm for healthy water, a healthy lifestyle and environmental protection, the idea was finally born to take action against single-use plastic with sustainable, customisable water bottles and to do something good for the environment.
The world population is growing exponentially. Raw materials are becoming scarcer and scarcer. Rubbish is becoming more and more.
According to the latest study, around 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the ocean every year (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. 2021), which is roughly equivalent to a full truckload of plastic waste every minute.
The biggest contributors to this problem are single-use plastic and a waste management system that cannot keep up.
In the spirit of 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle', we rely on multi-use/reusable bottles and materials. This reduces the use of resources, produces less plastic waste and protects the environment.
Only through an efficient circular economy - which still needs a lot of work to achieve - can the waste problem be solved. All sides are already testing and investigating how recycling can be optimised so that all the resources and energies in it are preserved and do not end up as waste in nature. There is also a lot of research into improved sustainable materials that can replace plastic, for example. We at aboutwater are also constantly researching in cooperation with partners and taking measures in the sense of sustainability.
We want to move away from a linear throwaway economy towards a circular economy. No waste, neither plastic nor in any other form, should end up in nature, but everything should be recycled. We want to close the cycle with our high-quality reusable water bottles and thus protect our nature, our environment and that of all living beings.
Let’s reduce, reuse and recycle!
How can we protect the environment with plastic bottles?
It seems like a fallacy, but: bottles made of high-quality plastic, such as Tritan, can be used for years, i.e. reused countless times, and are the safe alternative for some areas where other materials would be too dangerous.
The materials used to make our water bottles do not release microplastics or other harmful substances. So no microplastics or chemicals get into the environment or our bodies.
The lightness of the material also means that little CO2 is produced during transport.
And last but not least, it's about recycling, and we all have a role to play here. If we dispose of the bottles properly, they will not end up in nature and will return to a meaningful cycle.
A sustainable, liveable future for both animals and humans.
Clean forests, clean seas. A clean habitat for all living creatures on this earth.
We only have one earth.
With reusable water bottles to less pollution, a healthier lifestyle and a more conscious way of living.
To work on and find always better solutions through research and further development.
