Klean Kanteen Drinking Bottles
Klean Kanteen: Green on the Go
We take a break from our normal home products to examine something a bit more portable. More and more of us are on the go, exercising more, staying hydrated....all very good things. But the single-use plastic water bottle many of us use is an environmental nightmare. Better to use a reusable container, and there's no better reusable bottles for the planet than those made by Klean Kanteen.
The Klean Kanteen Difference
Switching from single-use plastic bottles to reusables is a no-brainer. 30 billion plastic water bottles are purchased every single year in the U.S.: these bottles require lots of oil (17 million barrels) to produce and lots of energy to transport (40,000 diesel-spewing semi-trucks worth). Reusable water bottles (as well as those for coffee, hot cocoa, any type of beverage) are a much better choice for the planet. If used enough times, these reusable containers use much less energy (both to produce and transport) and eliminate landfill space. But some reusable containers have their own problems. Enter Klean Kanteen: the cleanest, most environmentally-friendly line of reusable water bottles on the planet.
Advantages of Klean Kanteen
Unlike many plastic reusable bottles, Klean Kanteen products contain absolutely no toxic materials.
No BPAs: Plastic bottles often contain BPA, a type of plastic with links to many health problems. Klean Kanteen bottles are made with food-grade stainless steel. This steel requires no liners (unlike aluminum), and all Klean Kanteen tops are made with BPA-free polypropylene. The liquids in Klean Kanteen bottle interiors never come into contact with plastics.
Klean Kanteen also uses natural, renewable materials such as bamboo for some of their bottle tops and caps.
No Flavor Contamination: Plastic can also leach unwanted flavor or taste into liquids. The 100% stainless steel material in Klean Kanteen bottles is food-grade, and doesn't contain liners or epoxies. The stainless steel doesn't retain any flavors.
Large-Mouth Openings: The large openings on Klean Kanteen bottles are functional and convenient. The larger openings make adding ice incredibly easy; they also make cleaning the bottles much, much easier. (Many of Klean Kanteen's products are also dishwasher safe for even more convenience.)
Durable Stainless Steel: Klean Kanteen bottles are built to last. And last. By refilling and reusing the Klean Kanteen bottles (for years and years!) literally thousands of plastic bottles are kept out of the waste stream. The thick, high-quality stainless steel of the Klean Kanteen bottle can take a real beating.
Manufactured Responsibly: All Klean Kanteen products are manufactured to very strict environmental standards in China to protect air and water resources. Unannounced visits to manufacturing facilities ensures that Klean Kanteen workers are treated fairly, with respect, and are paid fair wages. All manufacturers must adhere to Klean Kanteen's strict fair labor standards including child labor rules, wages and benefits, and health and safety.
1% For The Planet: Klean Kanteen supports a wide range of approved environmental organizations that are working to protect and restore the natural environment by participating in the 1% For the Planet program. Klean Kanteen annually donates a portion of its profits to these groups doing vital environmental work.
