Klean Kanteen

I don't know what this baby's drinking, but the haze in her eyes doesn't come from toxins in her Klean Kanteen stainless steel reusable drinking bottle. While it would seem to be a good idea to re-use plastic water bottles, you could end up drinking potentially toxic compounds that have been leached into your water through the plastic as well as the bacteria that thrives in warm, moist environments. Most plastic water bottles are approved only for one-time use, and tests have shown that without a thorough hot water washing, they're not really clean enough to use again. But if you wash the bottle too frequently, it could accelerate the breaking down of the plastic, the process that leaches the compounds into the water.

If you want a bottle you can reuse safely, the Klean Kanteen is made of medical-grade stainless steel which is sealed through electro-polishing to assure that no minerals will migrate into your water. It comes in 27 and 40 oz. sizes, and with optional accessories like a nylon insulation bag to keep your drinks cold.

The bottles are available through phone orders only: contact Klean Kanteen directly to order.

More on the possible dangers of reuse of plastic bottles.
