Stay Hydrated!

Stay hydrated with your branded BOA water bottle made from 100% ocean bound plastic.

Our water bottles are made from 100% ocean bound plastic from Plastic Bank. These bottles are supplied with a bamboo cap, with a capacity of 500 ml, not dishwasher-safe!

With the purchase of these bottles, the BOA support Plastic Bank, a social enterprise, headquartered in Canada. Their aim is to clean up plastic waste from our oceans while providing valuable opportunities for impoverished communities. Plastic Bank offers residents of Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and other regions cash or vouchers in exchange for the waste they collect, which then goes on to be recycled into products.
