Design That Helps To Save the World

~ Official Dopper Ambassadoress ~
I love the planet I live in, enjoy nature and the outdoors. But it really hurts when you see the amount of (plastic) waste we humans inflict on the only place we can call home.

Plastic-Waste
A huge pile of plastic waste
Plastics are especially harmful to our environment because they are mostly mom-biodegradable, or take a really long time to degrade, and they also release a toxic cocktail of chemicals into the soil or water when they break down. Sure, you can recycle your plastics but the best way to be sustainable is to Reduce first, then Reuse, and finally Recycle.

Did you know there is a large area of plastic waste around 900 times the size of Singapore floating in our Pacific Ocean called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

That's why it is imperative that we reduce our plastic waste and switch to reusable shopping bags as well as bottles!

Love at First Sight
When I first say the ingenious design of the dopper bottle, I knew that I wanted to own one. After some email exchanges, they very generously sponsored me one bottle to review and one more for our readers! I am thrilled and very pleased at their generosity!


About the Design
Dopper is designed with the aim of reducing plastic waste in mind. They want to eliminate the use of drinking water in disposable plastic bottles and achieve this through a beautiful and elegant design. Besides having a lovely slim and sleek profile, it is also practical as it transforms from a bottle into a cup for different occasions! They won multiple awards with their design and most recently, they won the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards in Singapore. In order to see its functionality, I decided to bring it out for a day trip!

Guess where I went with my dopper?
Somewhere that teaches us to love our oceans!
Designed for Fashion
From the sleek and gentle curves to the wonderful colors and materials it comes in, the bottle on a pedestal won't look out of place in your fashionable work attire or on your gym bench. The design is so iconic that it would capture the attention of many. I had plenty of comments on the clever design when I brought it out on a day trip.

Pink matches everything I own!

Designed for Practicality
One of the reasons (out of many) on why I love the Dopper design so much is because of the cup integrated into the bottle. It is more hygenic to drink from the cup, especially for young children who cannot drink properly from a bottle yet. This way, they will be able to control the volume and sip from the cup. My daughter, who does not like to drink water, loved the bottle design so much that she finished one bottle within a couple of hours of our trip. Parents who find it so tough to force their children to drink frequently will certainly understand how happy I felt about this. Needless to say, we now bring our Dopper bottle everywhere with us!

I love to drink from my pink Dopper!

  17. Not only is the Dopper water bottle the perfect size/shape for travel it is also dishwasher safe and beautiful. Dopper is a Dutch design and is produced with a net zero carbon footprint and is free of BPA. Also, part of Dopper's proceeds goes toward drinking water projects in Nepal-how awesome is that?! I love companies that give back to those in need. The design is so functional and unique it is hard not to notice it. This three-part design is the best that I have so far seen in any reusable water bottle and it enables, as said, to really clean the bottle. Many others just cannot be cleaned properly as the size of the neck does not allow for good access.
    My favorite part about the bottle? It can be stood upon the top or bottom without leaking at all.

  18. H2O is vital to our health and happiness, but plastic water bottles are bad for the environment, not to mention expensive. Dopper bottles are pretty, eco-friendly and reusable water. A perfect companion because it fits into the bag so easily. I also love the cup integrated into the design, this way, we are saving the need for plastic cups and straws too!
