Back in the early 2000s, finding a reusable, stainless steel water bottle was nearly impossible. Plastic was the go-to choice. But that all changed when Klean Kanteen entered the scene in 2004. They were one of the first to offer BPA-free stainless-steel bottles, sparking a sustainability revolution.

Today, Klean Kanteen is an international brand, inspiring countless companies to create their own reusable stainless-steel products. In this blog, we’ll explore how Klean Kanteen is committed to sustainability, from carbon-neutral manufacturing to 1% for the Planet membership. Join us as we dive into the world of Klean Kanteen and their mission to create a more resilient and sustainable planet.
