Retailers selling dopper
Sales in 2016
2016: It was the year of Max Verstappen, Justin Bieber, Carpool Karaoke and ... Dopper!
We may not have been on the front pages of your Facebook bubble, but it was certainly news. In 2016, as many as 1,807,256 people in more than 25 countries turned the tide of plastic pollution by purchasing a Dopper and refilling it with tap water. This is certainly more than a drop in the ocean because anyone who uses a Dopper saves an average of 40 PET bottles per year. According to our calculations that means a saving of 72,290,240 disposable bottles! We sold the bottles in our own virtual store and via the 12,927 retailers countries including the Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Germany, France and yes, even in Brazil. Peculiar purchases were made in Japan, where six sport caps were sold but not a single Dopper Original. In total, all these sales brought a revenue of € 9,309,837.
However, Dopper's story of course goes much further than the bottle; because as a benefit corporation our aim is not just to make a profit – above all we want to make an impact. That is why we have also set foot in Germany, Belgium and America where we are attempting to tackle the polluting PET bottle. Without bloodshed of course, but with local ambassadors, a New York branch and awareness campaigns.
As is befitting of an annual review, we have also created a video overview. Without alternative facts, but with plenty of explosive highlights where the Samsung Galaxy S7 fades. Especially for you to watch with a glass of champers on the sofa.
