Million Bottle Project Bottles

100Million-2020

REDUCE THE USE

By 2020, S’well aims to help displace 100 million plastic bottles from entering landfills, waterways and other undesirable locations with the Million Bottle Project –a sustainability program to promote minimizing single-use plastic bottle consumption.

Inspired by the statistic that individuals use 167 plastic water bottles each year with less than one-third being recycled, the Million Bottle Project helps to demonstrate that we can create big change in the world by making small changes in our everyday lives.

Join us by taking the pledge to reduce the use today, tomorrow and every day.
