Because we work at home, there's often a bottle of water sitting on our desk. We thought it would be nice to have a cooler-looking bottle of water, one that we could re-use, and also carry with us when we go out and about. We've read about the possibility that toxic chemicals from plastic bottles can leach into the water, and although we love the look of the SIGG bottles, there's some uncertainty regarding aluminum, too... An alternative is the Kleen Kanteen stainless steel bottle. Kleen Kanteen's bottles are reusable (which means less plastic in landfills and oceans), easy to clean, durable, lightweight, and made from stainless steel, which is toxin-free and non-leaching. Available in three sizes, ranging from 18 oz. to 40 oz., and prices from $13.95 to $21.95. The bottles can be purchased online, or a list of retailers is here.
