What is Oonly?
Oonly is a sustainable innovation to reduce plastic pollution, one of the most important issues of our time.
With Oonly, we re-invented a previously widely used and popular solution, the deposit-refund scheme for bottles, which we placed into a 21st century environment to create the Oonly system. An Oonly bottle can be reused up to thirty times during its lifecycle. After you buy an Oonly bottle, drink the water and return the bottle to us either through the docking station or via kifli.hu, we disinfect it at a very high temperature, and refill it so the process can start all over again. No plastic contamination, just crystal clear, natural mineral water. All bottles and accessories are recycled in their entirety at the end of their lifecycles, so the whole Oonly process is entirely free of plastic waste. - ZERO WASTE
With Oonly, you don’t have give up on high-quality mineral water just to remain environmentally conscious: all Oonly bottles are filled with Vis Vitalis mineral water.
Vis Vitalis is the high-quality, naturally crystal clear mineral water produced by the Pannonhalma Archabbey. The spring from which the sourced is made is situated in the foothills St. Martin's Hill in Pannonhalma. The natural mineral water is brought up and bottled from a protected water table that is around 17,500 years old and lays 106 m under ground, and is naturally crystal clear due to the closed water base and its age. Thanks to the Oonly system, we are able to maintain this purity throughout the process.
Oonly is available in 1.5-liter bottles capped with dark blue for carbonated water and light blue for non-carbonated.
The docking station
One of the most important stops in Oonly’s special circulation is the docking station.
Oonly’s docking station is unique in the world, with the capacity of storing, returning and selling 900 bottles. It also continuously communicates with you and with us.Find a docking station
- In addition to buying new bottles, you can also replace your existing Oonly bottles.
- The station is able to identify individual Oonly bottles with a QR code scanner.
- It also sells bottle carriers so you can take 6 bottles home more conveniently.
- You can pay by credit card.
How does the docking station work?
At the docking stations you can both purchase and return bottles. You can refund empty bottles, that will be collected and stored by the docking station and returned to Oonly’s unique circulation. You can then decide if you want to replace them with full bottles.
If you choose to return more bottles than you purchase, the docking station will refund the deposit to you in the form of your choice. You can choose to get coupons that you can use in the form of a discount on your future purchases, or you can get the money back via bank transfer.
- Choose how much carbonated and non-carbonated mineral water you want!
- Take home fresh, natural water!
- Bring back the empty Oonly bottle!
- Throw the empty bottle in the docking station, then choose mineral water again!
- It’s that simple!

Why is Oonly important?
PET waste is a global problem. We all know that by now. In Hungary alone, 2 billion PET bottles are sold annually, and these are then almost immediately thrown in the trash bin.
Nearly 60% of PET waste is from mineral water. PET does not decompose promptly: it enters our waters, soil, and even the air in the form of a micro-plastics.
Hungary is doing quite poorly in terms of recycling plastic waste*. Only every third bottle will be recycled to another plastic product again. 2 out of 3 PET bottles will end up in our rivers, forests, underground landfills, or incinerators. One is worse than the other.
The Oonly system
The bottle cap
We use aluminum caps because aluminum is extremely easy to recycle. The cap is the only single use component of Oonly system. The product has a barcode on the cap, and the cap color indicates whether the mineral water is carbonated or not.
We use 100% BPA-free Tritan bottles that can be washed at up to 110°C and then refilled when sterile. Sports flasks are made from Tritan, and we have developed a new way to use the material. The Tritan bottle is strong, durable, and can be disinfected at high temperatures. This allows Oonly bottles to remain part of the cycle for years, replacing the disposable PET bottles currently available.
Oonly does not use foil labels. The product information on the bottle sidewall is printed with permanent, washable paint. No plastic foil waste is generated and no label adhesive is used. It is sustainable and simple.
The QR code
Oonly bottles can be individually identified by a QR code on the base. By scanning the code, we can identify the bottles and keep track of the number of cycles.
Oonly does not use shrink wrap, which also reduces the amount of plastic waste. The carrier is suitable for the practical transport of 6 bottles, can be reused countless times, and is made of 50% recycled plastic.
The easiest solution for home delivery is the use of the Oonly case. The 12-bottle case allows you to store the bottles neatly in your home and they also make carrying the bottles much more convenient. It is made of durable, reusable, and 100% recycled plastic.

We imagine a world where everyday consumption does not produce mountains of garbage.
Plastic cannot be completely eliminated from our lives. However, Oonly allows us to significantly reduce plastic use by replacing disposable PET bottles, without having to do without high-quality mineral water. Our goal is to replace the packaging of as many products marketed in disposable plastics as possible with reusable Oonly solutions in the future.
