This is the amount of plastic cups our program has prevented from entering Indonesian waste streams.
Can you help us donate 7,000 bottles before Christmas?
We want to sell 7000 bottles by Christmas so that we can:
- Donate an identical bottle to 7,000 children in Indonesia.
- Reduce the cost of water (by 33%) for up to 7,000 families in Indonesia.
- Increase the profits for parents working at ten school canteens (by 15%).
- Increase the amount of water drunk by Indonesian students (by 23%).
- Send 7,000 children through an education program about the impacts of plastic on the environment.
- Stop over 400,000 plastic cups from entering Indonesian waste streams within a year.
- Educate ten canteens on how to reduce plastic waste without losing profit.

What is Bottle for Botol?
Bottle for Botol is a social enterprise that works with Australian and Indonesian schools to help prevent plastic waste entering our water streams, rivers and oceans. Our program aims to educate students on the importance of protecting our environment by leading a generational change away from single-use plastics. For every stainless-steel water bottle sold by our Australian partner schools, we donate the same re-usable bottle and water station to an Indonesian partner school. Every bottle sold puts students through an educational program about the impacts of plastic on the environment.
Through partnerships, education and cross-cultural dialogue, our vision is to empower students across the world to move beyond single-use plastics towards an environmentally sustainable future.
We aim to achieve our vision through a simple water bottle exchange program, which generates partnerships between Australian and Indonesian schools to combat single-use plastics consumption.
Through cross-cultural discussion and student-led initiatives, it is our hope that students will emerge from the program with the tools and conviction to advocate for environmental sustainability and further develop their Australia-Asia literacy.
