After reading a news article on reusable water bottles (like nalgene) and all the harmful chemically that leach from them I took it upon myself to find an affordable, metal water bottle. After searching on the internet I found out that klean canteen have the best water bottles on the market.
The bottle itself it made of stainless steal so zero leaching happens when you use it multiple times. Also because of the stainless steal hot and cold beverages can be used in the bottles and no harmful chemicals will leach out. This is very convenient when you have an early morning class and you want to bring coffee, or you have a long day and you just want cold water. To clean the product all you need is soap and water and it is also dishwasher friendly!
The company itself makes six different water bottle sizes to fit anyone’s needs. I’m not sure what the smallest size is but I know the largest size (the one I have) can hold 40 ounces (1.1 Litres) of water. This is a great size for me because I tend to be away from the house all day and I rarely have to refill it. The top for the bottle can either be plastic or stainless steal which is a convenient choice. The mouth piece of the bottle is very wide so it allows you to put ice cubes in your bottle with ease. This is great if you are gone for a full way and you want to keep your water nice and cold.
Being a health conscious person I find the klean kanteen to be an excellent product. I no longer have to worry about the harmful chemicals that might come from reusing plastic bottles. While the bottle itself may seem a little expensive, I think it the long run it is worth spending that extra money to avoid the harmful consequences of using plastic water bottles.
