Klean Kanteen's New Plastic Free Bottles

Klean Kanteen has come out with some new bottles that are completely plastic free.  Not only that, but they are beautiful.  The KLEAN KANTEEN REFLECT has taken the water bottle to a new level, look at that gorgeous bamboo lid. Artful green function, yes!  No nasty chemicals to worry about here, just stainless steel, sustainable bamboo, and food grade silicone.

They purposely left off any paint to avoid scratched bottles ending up in recycling bins or landfills.  The logo is etched on and won't scratch off, brilliant. I'm wild for the lid, it makes the bottle scream adventure to me.  I can picture this bottle in a saddle bag on an expedition, in someone's pack on safari in the 1930's, or in a messenger bag on a bullet train.  It is old world and very modern all at the same time. 

I don't fool around with plastic at all, we know that it is not just BPA we need to worry about, so why take the chance?  All my bottles are stainless or glass.  Stainless is the best for more active situations like biking, traveling and camping, particularly if you have children around.

Klean Kanteen has come a long way since it's inception.  I used to buy their sippy cups for my son.  He still uses them (with a different lid) four years later, that's how well they endure.  Just be careful if you have them in a side pocket of your pack, because if you slam it down hard on the ground, you can get little dents in the bottom.   I took this bottle on a recent trip and it fit perfectly in my pack and was the right amount of water to have with me, I was grateful I brought it.  I think the Reflect might just be my favorite water bottle yet.  It's Earth Day, treat yourself!  Find it HERE.

I first read about Klean Kanteen in David Bach's book 'Go Green, Live RIch' but this is the first time I got to see them. Thanks for the post! Using these bottles is way better and safer than plastic bottles... and they're very pretty too!
