The Klean Kanteen Classic Stainless Steel water bottle was a green product that we stumbled on in around 2006 when I was studying Midwifery and about to be pregnant with our first child. I began exploring and developing my understanding about chemical exposures and heard about this bottle that was taking off among our friends in US communities, a high quality stainless steel bottle and a company that was changing the culture around single use products.
The Klean Kanteen Classic bottle was made from high quality 18/8 stainless steel and didn't have a lining; which many other options did at that time. It also had a handy 4.4cm wide opening at the top that made it easy to clean as well as to fit ice inside. Over time Klean Kanteen worked to improve the sipping cap for the bottle and expanded their range to include insulated stainless steel bottles and a variety of Klean Kanteen replacement cap options too.
We couldn't get enough of these bottles then or now and are pleased to say that we are still using many of those original bottles we purchased and sold before Klean Kanteen found a distributor here in Australia. With support of this distributor we are a key source for Klean Kanteen in Australia and a stockist of their full range.
Klean Kanteen have expanded incredibly since their beginnings but have kept true to their eco roots, producing durable, high quality and safe stainless steel bottles and encouraging many others across the world to embrace the reusable concept.
