Product & Care

The One Bottle is made from partly recycled 18/8 food grade stainless steel and food grade silicone. One Bottle is 100% BPA free.

The One Bottle keeps your cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks warm for 12 hours.

No sweat around here! The One Bottle is double-walled and vacuum insulated, keeping the outside of the bottle condensation free.

No! This can damage the pressure in the double-walled vacuum insulation. (Not to mention blow up your microwave.)

Everything at The One Movement comes 100% plastic free! Your One Bottle comes in a snug fitting cardboard box and will likely have an outer box for shipping.

All of our packaging boxes and dunnage is 100% recyclable or compostable. Packing peanuts are starch based and can be dissolved in water.

The One Bottle is for everyone, it's for those who are consciously aware that we have a plastic problem around the world and we must act accordingly. We want every customer to feel proud of the positive impact they've made with a One Bottle - not just on our planet, but on the waste collectors doing the vital work to keep it clean.

We do not recommend putting your One Bottle in the dishwasher. We suggest using warm soapy water and a reusable washcloth or brush. We recommend you clean the bottle regularly to prevent smells. (Pro tip: water bottles generally start to smell bad when they are used for things other than water- for the best experience, keep your water bottle, your water bottle).

If you’re kind to it, your One Bottle should last the rest of your life. But if you feel your bottle is at the end of its life, the good news is the One Bottle is 100% recyclable. Separate the steel and silicon parts and recycle according to your local recycling guidelines


1,000,000 plastic water bottles are sold every minute globally. That's about 20,000 per second. We know, it's hard to wrap your brain around that image.

Unfortunately, all those plastic bottles we drink per minute are unlikely to ever be recycled. Sadly, 91 percent of all plastic isn’t recycled. That means only 9 percent of plastic actually gets recycled.

The rest finds their way to landfills – or worse, our environment. In the environment, plastic bottles take 450 years to break down into tiny microplastic (that still pollutes and leaches toxins). In a landfill, plastic can take up to 1,000 years to break down.

Perhaps the worst part of plastic water bottles is how they’re made. Plastic bottles are commonly made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is petroleum based and non-renewable. It’s also unsustainable to harvest, considering we have to drill for oil to make the bottles.

For every One Bottle sold, we commit to removing 10kg of plastic from ocean-bound waterways and other natural environments. That’s the equivalent of over 1,000 single-use  plastic bottles (based on average 500ml PET bottles).

Plastic collected by the waste collectors is sorted at the local recycling centre. Whatever plastics can be recycled and is sold for goods at a competitive price to compete with virgin plastic.

What's left are low value, hard-to-recycle plastics like Multi Laminate Plastic. (MLP) e.g chip and chocolate wrappers. Following the collection of MLP, waste workers segregate, clean, and transport the plastic to cement kilns for a process known as co-processing.

Co-processing is a process where plastic waste is used to make different types of energy. You can find more information about the co-processing here.

Through our partners at Repurpose.Global we're able to guarantee "additionally." Meaning your purchase will collect plastic from the environment that otherwise would have not been retrieved.

The plastic collection data goes through a verification process by a 3rd party who is able to confirm the quantity and quality of the plastic credits.

No, we actually collect many different types of plastic, including the low value, hard to recycle plastics such as MLP/LDPE. (Thin film plastic e.g chip wrappers)

We use plastic bottles as a measurement to help picture the scope of your impact.

It's true. We created a proof-of-concept called Project "Namma Mane." The goal is to provide low-cost housing to waste collector families to improve their quality of life by repurposing hard to recycle LDPE into building materials and building recycled ocean-bound plastic homes.

We are currently only focused on ocean-bound plastic collection. In the future, our plan for Namma Mane is to build 100 houses for 100 waste collectors and their families.
