Back in the early 2000s, finding a reusable, stainless steel water bottle was nearly impossible.…
The environmental impact of plastic water bottle production is at an all-time high. It is estimated that about 400 million tonnes of plastic waste are produced every year around the world, according to The UN Environment Programme.
Making the shift from single-use plastic bottles to reusable, sustainable and eco-friendly water bottles is a major step in decreasing plastic waste. The Cresswell family, inventors of the Klean Kanteen brand, were amazed by the environmental value of using stainless steel products in the replacement of single-use plastics.
In the early 2000s, plastic seemed to be the only option available for consumers wishing to buy a water bottle.
Single-use plastics are exactly what they sound like, plastic items that are created to be used once, then thrown away. Around 9.1 billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950s, ending up in the oceans, harming wildlife and speeding up climate change.
In response to this environmental disaster, Klean Kanteen sold the first BPA (Bisphenol A, a harmful chemical used in plastics) free stainless-steel bottle in 2004, now known as the Classic 532ml. This inspired a wave of sustainable, continuous-use products throughout the world.
Klean Kanteen is now an international brand but importantly maintains its status as a family and employee-owned company, sticking to its message and main principles. This enables them to consistently fight for climate neutrality and lessen their environmental footprint where possible
There has additionally been major research to suggest that plastic bottles can be dangerous, not only to the planet but to our bodies. Continuous-use water bottles such as the Insulated TK Wide 592ml – Twist Cap or Insulated Classic 355ml use 18/8 food-grade stainless steel that won’t retain or impart flavours, making them perfect plastic-free options, that won’t harm you, or the planet.
