The voting for the #beapirate challenge 2022 ended.



We created our company Only Bottles to utilize the existing infrastructure of plastic bottle collecting in a new way. More than 480 billion plastic bottles were sold worldwide in 2016. That is up from about 300 billion only a decade ago. The consumption of single-use plastics grows each year, yet only 9% of it gets recycled. We want to use a cutting edge technology of breaking down PET bottles into two chemical substances. We will simply transport collected bottles to a plant where the bottles will be biodegraded. But what will you need to do? If you already put your plastic bottles in a separate container, that's it. You don’t need to change anything in your daily routine. You just need to support us. We don’t want to change your life. We want to change your future.
