This year, Dopper is organising the third edition of the Dopper Changemaker Challenge. The Challenge allows HBO & WO students who are graduating on a topic within clean water or plastic waste solutions to win a €5,000 research grant and training to put their idea into practice. The application deadline is April 12, 2019. Students are also invited to find inspiration during the Kickoff Event Impact Hub Amsterdam on March 14 from 7 PM until 10 PM.
Dopper is all about crystal-clear water. In every ocean, from every tap. But our world’s water sources are threatened. Every year, 8 million tons of plastic make their way into our oceans. This is not helped by the 1 million single-use water bottles being purchased worldwide every minute. Not cool. We can do better.
That’s why Dopper makes reusable water bottles, with a unique design and devised from the Cradle-to-Cradle concept. But we don’t stop there. We provide and promote (clean) tap water and challenge the throwaway lifestyle. All of our projects, from awareness campaigns to partnerships, are 100% focused on our mission.
Drink tap water. Stop plastic pollution. Smile at strangers.
