Dopper wants to make a positive and sustainable contribution to the world. We are reducing single-use plastic waste and increasing access to safe drinking water around the world. Dopper believes that organizations can also make a positive contribution to the environment and society. The following certifications support our claim that we are making a positive difference.
Dopper is officially certified as a B Corp (Benefit Corporation), and therefore belongs to a global movement of rebels with a cause. This certification is granted to companies that make a social and ecological impact, take responsibility and are transparent about how they contribute to the economy of the future.
What is B Corp?
B Corp is an American organization that was established in 2006 to build an international network of companies committed to a sustainable economy. The organization rates companies based on its online impact assessment and lobbies in the United States so that companies can register officially as Benefit Corporations.
How do you become B Corp certified?
To become B Corp-certified, you have to complete a comprehensive personal intake and fill out an online impact assessment consisting of a number of categories: Governance, Workers, Community and Environment. At least 80 of the 200 possible points are needed to B Corp-certified. Dopper earned a high score of 109 points. View the Dopper B Corp assessment here.
Cradle to Cradle
The core of the Cradle to Cradle principle is that all materials used to make a product can be reused later for making another product. No quality loss may occur and all remaining products must be recycled or made environmentally neutral.
What does Cradle to Cradle test?
The Dopper Original is Cradle to Cradle-certified. The bottles are checked based on material (in terms of health and reusability), the use of renewable energy during the production process, responsible water use and the contribution to social justice.
The Dopper Original is Cradle to Cradle certified because:
● the bottle does not contain any toxic or banned substances (such as Bisphenol A);
● the bottle is made from 100% recyclable materials;
● the Dopper is made responsibly in terms of water and energy use,
● old Doppers can be returned to Dopper or deposited in special plastic recycle bins;
● the bottle greatly contributes to reducing the global plastic problem;
● the Dopper Foundation contributes to drinking water projects worldwide.
