In December 2013, Merijn Everaarts (founder and owner of Dopper) paid an unforgettable working visit to Nepal. He visited different villages in the Baglung district, where Dopper Foundation supports water and plumbing projects through Simavi. This week, local partner NEWAH clearly demonstrated the former situation in these villages, what the current situation is, and what the future situation will be.
The Dopper Foundation created a documentary of this spectacular trip, so you, as a faithful Dopper fan, can experience how important the donations are. You can also see how the funds are being used and are still being converted to specific improvements for the local population, most of whom are extremely poor!
Our Project – Plastic Bridge
Every 30 seconds 25,000 P.E.T. bottles are purchased in the U.S. alone and they ultimately make their way to our oceans. At Dopper, our dream is crystal clear water from every ocean to every tap. Which is why this year, Dopper Foundation is building bridges to a P.E.T. free world. Starting with a replica of one of the most iconic landmarks in NYC: The Brooklyn Bridge. In collaboration with artist Colin Hendee, the Dopper Foundation is building a bridge made out of P.E.T. bottles, collected by the people of NYC. But our initiative goes further, because we are also creating an educational movement, teaching children about the effects of single-use plastic on our oceans and ourselves.
