Reduce Toxins and Waste with Klean Kanteen and Hydro Flask

Publish date

At Appalachian Outfitters, we believe in making wise decisions for our own health and the health of our planet. One way that we do this is by replacing plastic water bottles with Klean Kanteen or Hydro Flask stainless steel water bottles.

Plastic water bottles are harmful in many ways, all of which can be broken down into two categories:

Personal Health: Plastic water bottles are usually made of polyethylene terephthalate (PETE), which may release the known carcinogen DEHA into the bottled water. Bisphenol A (BPA) is another chemical in water bottles, only this one imitates the hormone estrogen; it causes behavioral and neurological problems in children and fetuses, cancers of the breast, brain, and prostate, and problems with the immune system and female reproductive system.

Environmental Health: Plastic isn’t renewable or biodegradable. It is expensive in terms of energy, resources, and toxins. The polyvinylchloride production process releases dioxins. Eventually, the only place to throw away plastic is in a landfill, further harming the environment.

To resolve these problems, choose healthful products from Klean Kanteen and Hydro Flask!

Hydro Flask:

Hydro Flask creates its water bottles to hold hot and cold beverages whether you’re driving to work or exploring the outdoors. Based in Bend, Oregon, its designers spend a lot of time outside, so they understand the demands of an adventurer’s life. That’s why the designers are always looking for new innovations, like lightweight bottles and more effective insulation.

Temperate: Hydro Flask bottles use TempShield™ double wall, vacuum insulated technology to keep drinks hot or cold without any heat or condensation on the outside.

Refreshing: All products are made using pro-grade stainless steel because of its purity and strength. It preserves flavor to guarantee your morning coffee won’t hint of last night’s beer.

Insulation: Engineers designed this Honeycomb Insulation to contain internal temperatures and resist external elements.
