Win One of Ten Klean Kanteens from Environmental Defence!

by Elizabeth

in Uncategorized

In 2004 Klean Kanteen® introduced the first personal hydration bottle made from stainless steel to give health and environmentally conscious people an alternative to plastic.

You never have to worry about the materials in a Klean Kanteen®. Toxin-free materials: They did the research for you and selected high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel for the bottles and BPA-free polypropylene (pp#5) for the caps. Quality stainless steel doesn’t need a liner like aluminum bottles, so it doesn’t retain flavors or make drinks taste funky.

Klean Kanteens is the best quality out there for drink containers that are toxin-free and eco friendly.   Now, thanks to Environmental Defence, you can enter to win one of your own, and the chances are GREAT because there will be TEN winners!

Know a youth who enjoys writing, taking photos or making videos and passionate about environmental issues and wants to make a difference? Then they may be Canada‘s Next Green Journalist!

Win One of Ten Klean Kanteens… just wait for the Rafflecopter form to load!  Giveaway open to Canada Only.  Closes for entries December 29th 2012 at 12:01 AM.  See Rafflecopter for Full terms.

I learnt Toys: The best way to avoid chemicals in toys is to choose toys that are made from natural materials such as wood, stainless steel and organic cotton. In 2011, Health Canada proposed draft guidelines to keep cadmium out of children’s jewelry. Still, we advise consumers to avoid kids jewelry items made of metal which may contain the toxic substance.
