  • They're great for kids; especially if you're having a bunch over. No more lost or spilled drinks. OK... greatly reduced lost or spilled drinks.
  • Don't have to worry about forgetting them in the car, office or gym. Just grab another one, you can gather them up later.
  • If you lose a bottle, it's not a big deal. You didn't pay $12 - $15 for it; they're very inexpensive.

“Born out of necessity, created with true passion” 

After 25 years in business, the great recession left me broke, financially, physically and mentally. Not having another 25 years to work, I knew I'd have to do something much different to reestablish my retirement. After reevaluating my skills set, I decided to take a chance at inventing something. The business man inside me said “whoa, that’s a lot of money and a huge gamble”. After much back and forth, we came up with three guidelines that would minimize costs and increase the chances of success:

1) Had to be something the majority of the people could use (The more people that can use it, the more chances to have a successful product) 

2) Has to be an inexpensive product (Not only can it be easily afforded, our designing, developing and prototyping costs are a lot less)

3) Third, and most important, It has to somehow help people or our planet (Society is finally coming around to realize we are destroying ourselves and our world. A product that makes a significant difference will quickly be promoted through social media)

With these guidelines in mind I came up with the idea of an inexpensive reusable water bottle. The same concept that came about in the food storage containers many years ago. The one big problem is that I had nothing to patent. It took a while, but I finally came up with the idea of snapping the cap unto the side. It was big hit! Everybody loves it!

I've always hated single use water bottles. Can't stand opening the fridge to see a bunch of half filled bottles that I know will never be finished. Wasting water, wasting resources, just to throw them away after one use... I even hate the little crinkly noise they make when you squish them. And to top it off, while researching plastic bottle pollution, I’ve found out that plastic contaminants in the ocean are finding their way up our food chain. And single use bottles are a main cause! Fighting plastic waste has become the priority of this campaign. It’s not about money anymore; it is about reducing plastic pollution. Let’s start off by replacing single use bottles right now!

Reducing water bottle pollution

Single use water bottles are one of the biggest sources of plastic pollutants. One Green Bottle replaces countless single use bottles that could ultimately end up in our landfills and oceans

***WITH YOUR HELP WE HOPE THIS TO BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF SINGLE USE BOTTLES***

Risks and challenges

There are always the risks of the tooling and/or production costs running higher at the time of contracting. To offset this risk I've gotten multiple estimates and am running my number using the higher ones. Additionally, I have private investors interested in this project; if needed I would approach them to see this through.
