October #ZeroWaste Feature

TK Wide Insulated Bottle by Klean Kanteen
This month’s #ZeroWaste feature product is the TK Wide Insulated Bottle by Klean Kanteen. These hard-wearing, stainless steel vessels keep drinks piping hot or icy cold for hours on end. No matter what you are drinking on the daily, having a reusable vessel is one of the most essential pieces of zero waste gear you can own. If you already have a reusable stainless steel vessel, keep using it! If you have nothing and need to “green up,” the TKWide is an excellent option. (Read this blog about the “Blue W” program to find locations in downtown Peterborough where you can refill your TK Wide Bottle!)
The materials are great. Klean Kanteen uses 18/8 vacuum-insulated stainless steel and a chip-resistant finish. Their gaskets and O-rings are made from food-grade silicone. The plastic components are very few, and all are made with BPA-free polypropylene #5.
