CHICO, Calif. (March 8, 2017) – With a new 2017 collection, Klean Kanteen continues to break ground with healthy, safe solutions to single use waste. Highlights of the new line include reusable food-grade silicone and Stainless Steel Straws, a new Straw Lid set, a plastic-free, all-natural Brush Set and a paint and plastic free Insulated Reflect series bottle.
“A certified B Corporation and 1% for the Planet member, Klean Kanteen is committed to creating environmentally friendly products that reduce single use waste and last a lifetime,” said Phil Notheis, Klean Kanteen director of product. “Every day Americans throw away 500 million plastic straws. Expanding our Accessories collection to include stainless steel straws, a new straw lid, and natural, plant-based brushes for easy cleaning just made sense.”
The convenient new Klean Straws and Tumbler Lids can be tossed in a bag or purse for on-the-go use. Dishwasher friendly and sold with a special cleaning brush, the reusable straws make it easy to make the switch from conventional, landfill-bound plastic straws. The two-piece food-grade silicone and stainless steel straws feature a safe, flexible silicone straw tip.
Straws will be available in April, in packs of four, with all black or multi-colored tip options, with a natural palm fiber straw brush for easy cleaning (MSRP $9.95) included. A new three-piece Straw-Lid Set, featuring a straw-compatible, spill-resistant, press-fit Tumbler Lid, single straw and straw brush (MSRP $9.95) will also be available.
Beautiful in its simplicity and deliberate in its design, Klean’s new 20 oz. Insulated Reflect (MSRP $40.95) is crafted using only three materials: sustainably harvested bamboo, food grade silicone and stainless steel. This stylish addition to the insulated line has a laser etched logo — with no paint nor plastic. A large 1.75-inch opening makes for easy pouring and the double-wall insulation makes this ideal for keeping beverages, including water and kombucha, cold for up to 24 hours and iced for up to 40 hours.
“The mission behind all of our accessories is simple: to help Klean Kanteen products perform at their best, to extend their usable life and to keep our fans happy, healthy and hydrated,” said Jim Osgood, Klean Kanteen CEO. “Our new Accessories and new Insulated Reflect bottle all deliver on that promise.”
Join Klean Kanteen at Expo West in honoring the B Corp community at a Happy Hour on Saturday, March 11, from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. at booth #3478. Klean will be gifting 100 of their new Insulated Reflect bottles on a first come, first serve basis and providing steel pint cups for beer and wine for the duration of the Happy Hour.
