Klean Kanteen: The Answer to Plastic Water Bottles

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 21 January 2010

With all the talk about bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic water bottles, Quinte Naturopathic Centre decided to find an alternative. Because we believe in the prevention of illness but also in working hard to help create a happy and healthy planet, we chose Klean Kanteen.

Klean Kanteen released their first stainless steel water bottle in 2004 and haven’t looked back since. They’ve ensured that their protocol is environmentally friendly to reduce their footprint on the planet, from how they make their products to all their office products, right down to their hand soaps. They’ve also audited their suppliers and manufacturers to make sure those companies uphold the same high standards as Klean Kanteen.

Some water bottle facts:

  • 70,000,000 plastic water bottles go into North American landfill sites each year.
  • 88% of plastic water bottles are not recycled in Canada
  • Bottled water produces 1.5 million tons of plastic waste and requires 47 gallons of oil per year
  • It takes 3L of water to produce 1L of bottled water
  • Studies have shown that plastic water bottles leach toxins that are carcinagenic.

Klean Kanteen water bottles are reusable and 100% recyclable. They are stainless steel, 100% non-leaching, and toxin-free, which makes them a safe alternative to plastic or lined metal containers.

We at the Quinte Naturopathic Centre stand behind this product 100%. That’s why we sell them.

Available at the Quinte Naturopathic Centre in silver, black, pink, green, brown, blue, and orange, and in 800ml and 355ml sizes. Your choice of a loop cap or sippy cup adapter.
