"The Original" Steel Bottle. In 2004, Klean Kanteen® introduced the first hydration bottle made from stainless steel to give people a safe, healthy alternative to plastic. Our commitment to you and the planet drives everything we do. From our stainless steel creations to the company we keep, we are firmly fixed on the task of making healthy, high-quality goods that will faithfully replace a lifetime of single-use items.
Klean Kanteens have always been made from toxin-free materials, with large-mouth openings, radius (rounded) corners and threads so they're easy to clean. Stainless cap and lid options are available in all styles.
You never have to worry about the materials in a Klean Kanteen. We did the research for you and selected high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel and BPA-free polypropylene #5 (for caps). Quality stainless steel doesn't need a liner like aluminum bottles, so it doesn't retain flavors or make drinks taste funky.
It's easy to clean Klean Kanteens because they were intentionally designed with radius (rounded) corners and there are no hard angles where dirt or bacteria can hide. We also use large, radius threads that are easy to clean so dirt, bacteria and germs don't have a place to accumulate or hide.
The large openings of our bottles, canisters and tumblers accommodate big ice cubes and also make for easy cleaning. You can handwash all of our products and many of them are diswasher safe.
All our bottles and canisters have stainless steel interior options available so drinks never touch plastic. Our food canisters come standard equipped with lids that feature leak-proof, stainless steel interiors to lock in flavor and create 100% stainless environments.
The food-grade stainless steel we use doesn't need to be lined with plastic or baked-on epoxy like aluminum bottles, so you'll never have to check to make sure the inside of your Klean Kanteen is still safe and intact. Because our steel solutions don't have liners, they don't retain flavors or make drinks taste funky either.
When you buy a Klean Kanteen you're getting a handcrafted solution designed to last a lifetime. We use an extremely high quality metal that will remain stain and rust resistant for decades.
Every Klean Kanteen is made from pieces of stainless steel welded together by hand then electropolished for a smooth, shiny interior.
The walls of our bottles, canisters and tumblers are noticeably thicker than most copycat brands. It's a well-researched balance between weight and durability, so they don't dent easily. If you take care of your Kanteen, it can last a lifetime.
Not all stainless steel is the same. We make our products using an extremely high quality metal so our bottles stay stainless and shiny forever.
Our products are progressive, functional designs that perform a task much better than the paper, plastic and aluminum options. Not all alternatives to single-use are created equal — it is paramount to the Klean Kanteen mission to offer only responsible solutions that are designed with health, safety and sustainability front of mind.
Refilling and reusing your bottle, canister or tumbler instead of buying single-use keeps thousands of bottles, cups, and other items from entering the waste stream, our waterways, and our oceans. Pledge to refuse single-use!
We work with our manufacturing partner in China toward achievement of strong environmental standards put in place to protect the earth, water and air and to reduce the environmental impact of the manufacturing process.
We visit our factories regularly, sometimes unannounced, to make sure that the workers who handcraft each product are treated well and paid fairly. We require fair labor standards, including the ethical treatment of factory workers, child labor rules, wages and benefits, health and safety.
We collaborate with a number of like-minded organizations, companies, and non-profits working to bring about environmental and social change. Our network of partners and friends stretches across the country and around the globe. We're also a proud member of 1% for the Planet and a certified B Corporation.
