New members’ products make it easy to live without plastic
We are very pleased to announce that Klean Kanteen, Chico Bag and Lunchbots have joined the coalition. All three offer efficient high-quality solutions for a life without disposable plastic—reusable stainless steel water bottles, reusable bags, and stainless steel lunchboxes. These companies are visionary leaders in their fields and we are delighted to welcome them on board.
KleanKanteen offered its first stainless steel bottle in 2004—years before the general population realized the health and environmental dangers of plastic bottles. With the highest commitment to quality and fair labor practices, Klean Kanteen has remained a visionary producer of stainless steel water bottles. Thoughtfully designed to be easy to use and keep clean, the bottles are toxin-free and made of food grade stainless steel with a BPA-free cap. Their site offers a rainbow of colors and styles but you can also find their products in lots of stores and supermarkets nationwide.
A random trip to the local landfill is what set in motion the creation of ChicoBag. Founder Andy Keller was stunned by how much of the landfill was just single use plastic bags. He realized that single use plastic bags were everywhere, and vowed to help stop this needless waste. He began his company literally sitting at a sewing machine, making the first bags himself. Now ChicoBag is a leader in a growing field, creating a variety of durable, lightweight and attractive reusable bags, many made from recycled content. All ChicoBags can fold into their own integrated pouch and come with a carabiner hook.
Packing a lunch without using plastic is a challenge no more. Lunchbots makes 100% stainless steel containers in a variety of sizes, and even has a children’s dish set. Perfect for school lunches or ‘brown bagging’ at work, the containers are made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel, just like KleanKanteens, and are easy to keep clean. Check out their photo gallery for attractive and appetizing ways to pack lunchbots with delicious meals.
