non BPA water bottles

Klean Kanteen

These include a large mouth stainless steel bottle, which does not contain the chemical BPA. They are only just starting to appear in Australia. Epoxy resins containing BPA are often used to coat the inside of food and beverage cans, as well as aluminum water bottles not made from stainless steel. Klean Kanteen’s main claim to being a sustainable item is through the fact it doesn’t have a BPA liner.

The company website says that “our manufacturing facilities in China, we have inspectors from Klean Kanteen® on the ground every day. They are in communication with factory managers and workers to ensure implementation of quality control, fair labor, and environmental standards and policies. In addition, we require third-party social audits of our manufacturing facilities”.

“Right now, we’re in the process of implementing a Code of Conduct for all manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors, which will define policies and procedures expected of any company that works directly or indirectly with us. The Code of Conduct includes guidelines covering ethical standards, employee rights, fair labor standards, professional management systems, manufacturing excellence, and health and safety of workers, employees and end users”.
