Klean Kanteen: Replacing Plastics for Every Member of the Family

BPA is bisphenol A, a chemical used to make popular plastics used for drinking and food storage. The safety of BPA has been questioned by the National Toxicology Program of the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the Food and Drug Administration. Recently, infant bottles have moved to BPA-free or back to glass. If you are looking for BPA-free replacements for plastic drink containers than look no further.

Klean Kanteen offers replacements for plastic drink containers used by all members of your family.

Classic Klean Kanteens

Klean Kanteen products are made from stainless steel with soft angles making washing simple and less likely to harbor bacteria. Klean Kanteen maintains a high code of production ethics and respect for worker’s rights as evaluated through the International Organizations for standardization (ISO) The containers are machine-washable although the colored versions should be washed by hand. These are great choices for replacing plastic water bottles and are durable for the most active lifestyles. The bottles also come in charity choices like their prayer flag kanteen which gives $4 from each sale to the Breast Cancer Fund. This eco-conscious group looks at prevention of breast cancer by connecting the environmental factors to the disease. They also offer their “I love Boobies” bottle which sends $4 from each sale to the Keep a Breast foundation, another breast cancer prevention charity.

Klean Kanteen Sippy Cups

Like the bottles, the sippy cup series can withstand the drops, throws and rolls sippy cups can endure. The sippy lid fits on classic bottles making them a great economic choice as containers that will grow with your child. The sippy cups also come with the dome cover to help keep them clean and neat when placed in a purse or diaper bag. Klean Kanteen offers bottles in both the classic and in a wide range of colors. They suggest plain for children who tend to chew since the paint can be chipped off by little teeth. These are perfect for preschool lunches when you want a zero-waste solution that juice boxes and milk cartons just can’t provide.
