Buy One, Give One.

Join the Pipe Foundation

95% of the plastic soup in the ocean comes from rivers in developing countries in Africa & Asia. These poor countries are also most affected by these emissions resulting in global warming. That is why we created for children in developing countries a Buy One Give One (BOGO) bottle made from sugarcane. These bottles are CO2 negative, the production of these bottles have no negative affect on the environment. Donating a bottle to a child in a developing country will also stop the flow of single use water bottles in the ocean. But these bottles are not for FREE, because we first ask the children to do a plastic pollution exam and ask them to clean up the schoolyard. This way they learn about the dangers of plastics in the environment and the bottle gives them an alternative for their single-use bottles and sachets. Thanks to the support of many retailers, hotels and events we were able to give a way millions of bottles to children in developing countries. Please contact us and Join The Pipe with us.

Buy a Bottle, Give a Bottle

For every Join the Pipe bottle you buy or sell we donate a water bottle to school children in Africa. A water bottle is for better hygiene, to carry water to school in a sustainable way. We also organize City Clean-Ups with schools to tackle plastic soup and create awareness. As a reward the children receive our sustainable water bottle.

Buy Water, Give Water

If you sell our prefilled water bottles, we provide water in areas where there's none. From a tap at school or our Blue Pump in a rural village.

Sell Water, Give Water

If you supply or sell water from our tap stations, we provide water in areas where there's none. We provide water with a Water Kiosk at schools and with our reliable Blue Pump in rural areas.

The City Clean-Up

To solve plastic problems we have to start at the source, in big cities in Africa and Asia, where the quality of the water supply is unreliable and plastic waste processing and collection services is inefficient. Children often drink water from cheap plastic sachets, which together with all other plastic packaging end up on the street and in the rivers.

For example our City Clean-Up in Nairobi. This heavy populated Kenyan city has a huge plastic problem. Together with school children we clean an area, educate them about the danger of plastic waste in the environment and hand out reusable bottles to drink from for better sanitation and less plastic waste.

The Water Kiosk

A Water Kiosk at School is our award winning project developed together with our Kenyan partner organisation ITF. A kiosk helps efficiently obtain safe drinking water, provides business knowledge to its youth and causes less school dropout, especially among girls, who are often sent to fetch water from afar and are therefore unable to go to school.
