The need: A dependable, leak-free container for water or other drinks is a necessity whether you’re on the road or at camp.
The answer: Klean Kanteen’s insulated vacuum mug and bottle has a double-walled construction that works to keep drinks hot for up to six hours and cold for more than 24 hours. An eco-friendly alternative to plastic, it has a 100 percent food-grade stainless steel interior that doesn’t impart any flavor. It’s easy to clean, and unlike other thermoses, it’s dishwasher safe. It’s also free from BPA, phthalates, lead or other toxins.
It also has a large mouth opening to insert ice cubes and rounded corners to discourage bacteria growth.
Keep it green: You can feel good about Kleen Kanteen’s commitment to the environment. The company uses eco-friendly packaging and provides a lifetime warranty for its products, ensuring long-lasting durability. If it does have to be tossed, the bottle still doesn’t have to end up in a landfill; it’s recyclable.
The options: The Klean Kanteen vacuum insulated mug and bottle is available in three sizes: 12 ounce, which is $24.95; 16 ounce, which is $27.95; and 20 ounce, which is $29.95. They come in silver, gray, black, white, blue and pink.
