In light of the Sigg Water Bottle crisis, Green Scout Report is recommending two very safe water bottles – KOR Hydration Vessel and the Klean Kanteen. Both BPA free and great looking, I carry them everywhere I go. These were chosen because not only are they safe and styish, both KOR and Klean Kanteen are also built on strong corporate values and responsibilities. Two options to make you feel and look great!
KOR Hydration Vessel:
This really is my best eco-style secret as of late.
Its sleek design is incredible and the bottles are BPA & PBA free. What this means is that the plastic will not leach to your system when you drink out of it. I love the fact that you can actually see the water in the bottle that comes in four colors. Its hinge cap lets you drink with one hand instead of fumbling with those incredibly annoying screw on tops. And the rubber bottom keeps it from slipping.
KOR has a company value system called S.E.T. (Sustainable, Ethical, Transparent) in all their business practices. They firmly believe that in the “importance of clean water to human health and to the health of our planet, and in the power of design to inspire and motivate”. That is music to our ears. Green Scout Report could not have said it better ourselves.
Each water bottle holds 25-ounces of liquid and has a hinged cap and perfect spout. And for every product purchased, KOR will donate funds to various water-related non-profits depending on the color you purchase. Choose from Ocean Protection (blue), Watershed Protection (green), Container Recycling (orange) and Global Water Crisis (purple).
For more information or to purchase, visit KOR. You can also get them on Amazon.
Klean Kanteen: The Original Stainless Steel Bottle
Launched in 2004 Klean Kanteen™ introduced the first personal hydration bottle made from stainless steel to give health and environmentally conscious people an alternative to plastic. These are high quality, handcrafted bottles committed to strong environmental and labor standards.
Klean Kanteen has recently launched their new WIDE version of their best selling Kanteen. Here at Green Scout Report, we are thrilled about this new version! The Klean Kanteen is BPA free, as well. All Wide bottles have a cap with stainless steel on the inside so drinks never touch plastic.
This family-owned business also practices the eco it preaches! The company uses office paper is 100% post-consumer content, providing all soaps that are fair trade and eco-friendly, using Energy Star-certified office equipment. They have increased third-party audits of factories making its products in China to ensure they’re meeting Klean Kanteen’s high environmental and fair labor standards.
