We love our oceans, but hate what plastic waste is doing to them. We started the Neptune Project to raise awareness and develop products that are designed to do away with single-use plastics.
We owe a lot to the ocean. It's a primary food source for much of the world. It drives the global water cycle that creates our drinking water. And Half of the air we breathe is created by oceanic phytoplankton. But every time we throw away a piece of plastic, we risk harming the ocean, the animals in it, and even ourselves.
Single-use plastics like straws, grocery bags, and plastic bottles are convenient. We use them, throw them away, then forget about them. Sadly, most of them end up in our oceans where they cause serious damage to the ecosystem.
Plastic never really breaks down, but it does break up into toxic micro-plastics and chemicals. They contaminate the water and harm the animals that live in it.
We believe your simple actions create a ripple effect that can change the world for the better! You can help us protect our oceans' future by replacing single-use plastics with products that are made to last.
Humans buy about a million single-use plastic bottles per minute! That means replacing plastic bottles with reusable ones has the potential to make a real impact. It's a small step we can take to make a huge difference.
We've spent the last year working with designers and engineers to create our first custom product—The Neptune Bottle—a strong and sleek hydration vessel designed to eliminate plastic bottles, one bottle at a time.
We want you to love your Neptune Bottle and use it for years to come, so we prioritized high build quality, premium materials, and elegant design throughout the creation process.
You can personalize your Neptune bottle by swapping the carry strap for a different color!
You deserve to feel warm and fuzzy every time you choose your Neptune Bottle over plastic! On the cap, you'll find an embossed ripple texture that brings to mind the powerful effect that your actions have on the world around you.
We've been working closely with our manufacturing team to develop prototypes and production samples. Now we need your help to bring the Neptune Bottle to life!

Risks and challenges
Much of the groundwork has already been laid for us to carry this project to completion. However, we know that there is always potential for obstacles to arise during the manufacturing process, such as unexpected order quantities or or quality control issues. Luckily we have developed a strong relationship with our factory over the last year. They've shown us that they're committed to helping us create the best possible product and quickly overcome any challenge.
