Resources

We want our work to make a difference, so beyond the bottle sales, we aim to support you to to take action on plastic and speak confidently about what you believe in.

We work with individuals, companies and whole industries to raise awareness and inspire change. For example, as part of a radical new collaborative campaign, Drastic On Plastic, led by the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF) and RAW Foundation, over 60 independent festivals have pledged to ban single use plastics by 2021. RAW Bottles is the AIF’s official reusable bottle partner, donating 10% of all sales to AIF members to the Drastic On Plastic campaign fund.
