How this custom water bottle helps clean the ocean for all of us

Too often, corporate gifts are throwaway items. They're not useful or they're unattractive; they've been created without much thought or consideration. But with Peace by Piece's partner Ocean Bottle, your custom water bottles with logo become so much more — they become a way for your company to be part of the solution.

According to Pew, 11 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the ocean every year, damaging habitats and endangering marine life. Even more troubling, that rate could nearly triple by 2040. But this small bottle creates a big impact: It's an opportunity to stop plastic pollution at its source while improving social mobility for people across the globe.

How Ocean Bottle works

In coastal communities in Haiti, Brazil, the Philippines, Indonesia, and elsewhere, locals collect plastic waste in exchange for money, healthcare, tuition, or other useful goods and services. Over 4,100 individuals are paid a UN-defined living wage by collecting plastic (You can meet one collector, Kuntari, in a video here). The material is then recycled into new products like Ocean Bottle. Each Ocean Bottle funds the collection of 11.4 kilograms of plastic, or about 1,000 plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in the ocean.

When you create your custom water bottles with logo through Peace by Piece International, we will work with you to communicate this impact through collectors' stories, marketing materials, interviews, or image and video assets for social media, press, or event spaces.

You can also separate the environmental impact from the merchandise price on your invoice, meaning your order can be attributed to your CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) or sustainability budget, not simply your merchandising budget. And we can quantify this purchase for your ESGs (Environmental, Social, and Governance).

Ocean Bottle creates custom water bottles with logo through the hard work of collectors diverting plastic from the ocean.

Creating custom water bottles with logo for Mercedes

In 2021, Mercedes purchased these bottles for client gifts at golf and motorsport events including the Ladies Business Cup, the AWGC Tour, Mercedes-AMG Track Days, and Mercedes Trophy Golf.

With its order of 4,100 water bottles, Mercedes supported the collection of 46,740 kilograms of ocean-bound plastic, or about 4.1 million plastic bottles.

Make it a custom water bottle with logo by adding your own branding and choosing from six colors.

How to fund the solution, rather than the problem

Manufacturing and shipping custom water bottles have an impact on the environment. While reusable water bottles are certainly better than single-use water bottles, too many promotional water bottles are made with new materials rather than recycled plastics.

Your purchase of Ocean Bottles ensures that plastic is diverted from polluting waterways. These bottles can also be recycled again; in fact, Ocean Bottle has a 10-year repair-and-replace program to extend the life and impact of the product even further.
