We like these guys. A lot. Alite's relationship with Klean Kanteen has been blossoming for the past few years, and we are thrilled to carry their water bottles and Sport Cap 3.0! Whether we're camping in Big Sur, hiking Alum Rock, or biking up at Twin Peaks, a Klean Kantten accompanies us on our many journeys where water is most definitely needed. Klean Kanteen's products continue to keep things cool at the Alite office, and their start up story is something to inspire and learn from:
"Klean Kanteen, a Chico, CA family-owned company founded in 2005, was the first to create reusable water bottles that are safe, lightweight and made from high quality stainless steel. A certified B Corporation and member of 1% For The Planet, Klean Kanteen, not only makes safe, eco-friendly water bottles, but also maintains high levels of oversight at their facilities in China to ensure that their factories meet environmental and fair labor standards. Their environmental business practices also ensure that all their packaging used in shipping their products is either recycled or made from materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)".
