ABOUT

Dopper is an initiative that promotes clean drinking water for everyone and reduces plastic waste. For this purpose, Dopper has developed the perfect reusable water bottle; durable, beautiful and incredible easy to clean! You’ll immediately reduce plastic waste, because you’ll never need a single-use water bottle again. The Dopper is real Dutch design, produced with a net zero carbon footprint, free of BPA and contributes to drinking water projects in Nepal.

Walnut Brands is the exclusive distributor in Denmark for Dopper

THE DESIGN

Water is for everyone and so everyone got to submit a design for the perfect reusable water bottle. On January 3rd, 2010, a design competition was organized and on March 22nd the winner was announced. The creative network of the Harlem Legacy assisted Merijn and served as judges. Around 100 designers submitted their idea and ten of these were selected for further study. Did they meet the requirements? Did the shape match the name? Rinke van Remortel was most successful in his interpretation of the design assignment. His Dopper had Dutch design style, the perfect shape and the right philosophy: we had a winner!

The white cap turns into a cup when you turm it upside down and places water on a pedestal, according to Rinke. This philosophy matches Merijn’s approach perfectly: having access to clean drinking water is a luxury. Rinke was awarded with everlasting glory. Glory that is now spreading across the globe, with retailers from Germany to the US! His name is on every Dopper.
