One Bottle One Dream is a non profit 501c3 dedicated to empower teachers and students in pre-kindergarten – 3rd grade to recycle and reuse within the classroom to reduce their schools overall waste. OBOD has successfully funded the “School Bundle Project” in the 8th largest school district with every school receiving a storybook and Teachers Eco Activity Guide aligned to the Common Core Standards.

The story book takes kids on a journey with Jack, a water bottle who dreams of being recycled into something new.  Giving plastic a voice and a dream, paired with hands-on activities can infuse students with passion, give them a reason to recycle, and can be the connection kids need to create good habits early.

Teachers and students are making a difference by switching to reusable water containers, minimizing lunch time waste, reusing products for crafts, and recycling all Jacks!
