Awareness is curative… Or so they say, and we’re working hard to help raise awareness regarding the immense problem of plastic pollution.
You have all seen the photos and videos that have emerged over the past years, of the plastic littering the beaches and waterways in beautiful Bali. Our aim is to reduce the use of single-use bottles and coffee cups, by providing a fun and sustainable alternative to plastic.
Our story started in 1987 when I first came to Bali… It is difficult not to fall in love with Bali; the kindness of the Balinese people and the magic of the island, in general, ensued that I kept on returning here, year after year.
Additionally, my three nieces are half Balinese, born of a union between my brother and his beautiful wife Made. These 3 beautiful talented women inspired me to create Bottles for Earth.
In 2010 I came to Bali with my Hydration bottle, happily refilling it up rather than purchasing single-use plastic bottles. Over the years I’d witnessed the explosive increase in plastic pollution in the once-pristine tourist hotspots, and was adamant not to contribute to it when it could so easily be avoided.
I had bought each of my nieces their own Hydration bottles, and upon my arrival back home in Australia, they kept messaging to say that their friends all wanted their own reusable bottles too. This happened to coincide with big changes in my personal life, and the decision was made for me to return to Bali and fulfill my dreams and the demand for these fun bottles.
Bottles for Earth started off as a small project but has since turned into a business that I share with my husband. We produce fun, quirky and relevant bottles that our customers are proud to hold on to themselves or buy as gifts for friends and family. We operate from a retail outlet in Kerobokan, where we have our own gift shop where we display our entire range of bottles (and some exclusive ones!), as well as other gift ideas, Bali Monopoly, Bali Blessing Cards, specialty wrapping paper and much more. Additionally, we are stocked in 100+ outlets and ship our bottles worldwide.
Apart from our one designs we also provide customised bottles for your businesses and organisations.
Our aim is to reduce the amount of plastic pollution all over the world, and we are proud of our 100% food-grade stainless steel bottles.
We support numerous local businesses by providing their local staff with our bottles, and we have worked with various foundations such as The Bali Children’s Foundation and The Jodie O’ Shea Orphanage, just to name a few.
We are always open to ideas, recommendations, queries, collaboration options, and charities to be involved in so please get in touch with us!
