Featuring quality materials and a variety of styles and colors,
water bottles are a great environmentally conscious choice for back to school lunches! The wide top openings make adding ice cubes easy, to keep drinks cold until lunchtime, and the bottles are dishwasher safe.
Each water bottle is constructed out of food-grade stainless steel, without BPA, phthalates, or lead, and features stainless steel interiors and threads, not plastic liners. The caps are made from BPA-free polypropylene and are also available in stainless steel options. Each bottle is environmentally friendly and recylable.
Klean Kanteens are available in a variety of sizes, from the 12 oz sippy version (also available is a 12 oz regular spout) up through the largest 64 oz wide mouthed version. For school age children, the classic 12 & 18 oz bottles are perfect for a refreshing drink during lunches while the the 12 and 16 oz insulated bottlesare perfect from bring soups and other hot foods to school.
My own children have tested the water bottles in the Texas heat, during our many days of plus-100 degree temperatures, and were both quite happy that their water stayed cold, even sitting on the patio or locked in the hot car while we shopped. We're confident they'd hold up to a few hours in a climate-controlled classroom after our heat test!
Klean Kanteens begin at approximately $15 for a 12 oz bottle and are available on Amazon.com.
