Klean Kanteen™ Partners with Healthy Child Healthy World

Klean Kanteen announces partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World, the nation’s non-profit leader in educating the public about preventing children’s exposure to harmful chemicals.

The toxins in our environment are much more dangerous for babies and children than for adults. Because they're still growing, kids are at the greatest risk of developing diseases and illnesses caused by exposure to toxins such as bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, lead, and other chemicals.

Klean Kanteenâ„¢, the maker of the first stainless steel bottle designed for personal use, is excited to announce our partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World, the nation's non-profit leader in educating the public about preventing children's exposure to harmful chemicals.

"Over the years, we've been very impressed with the work of Healthy Child Healthy World to protect kids from environmental toxins," said Jeff Cresswell, co-owner of Klean Kanteenâ„¢. "Through this partnership, we hope to reach out to a much wider segment of the population and help more parents create healthy, safe environments for their children."

Because babies and toddlers are even more vulnerable to environmental toxins than adults, Klean Kanteenâ„¢ offers a Kid Kanteenâ„¢ Sippy along with the bottles designed for grown-ups.

The Kid Kanteenâ„¢ offers parents peace of mind. The 18/8, food-grade stainless steel used to make all Klean Kanteenâ„¢ products is completely free of BPA, phthalates, lead, and other toxins. Many household products, including thousands of products for babies and toddlers, are made with types of plastics that have been shown to leach BPA into food and drinks.

Numerous scientific studies indicate that BPA has the potential to act as an endocrine-disrupter when ingested and that children are the most susceptible. The suspected health effects of BPA exposure can be linked to dysfunction in the brain, behavior, and prostate gland of fetuses, infants, and children at current human exposure levels.

“You won't ever have to worry about chemicals, toxins, or strange flavors leaching into your child's water or juice,” said Christopher Gavigan, CEO and Executive Director of Healthy Child Healthy World. "We're thrilled to be able to promote Klean Kanteen's products as a safer alternative to parents."

Klean Kanteenâ„¢ has lots of safe, healthy, eco-friendly bottle choices for kids and adults including Kid Kanteens and the Klean Kanteenâ„¢ Classic and Klean Kanteenâ„¢ Wide lines. See all our products at www.kleankanteen.com.

About Healthy Child Healthy World
Healthy Child Healthy World is a national, nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals. The organization exists because more than 125 million Americans, predominantly children, now face an historically unprecedented rise in chronic diseases and illnesses such as cancer, autism, asthma, allergies, birth defects, ADHD, obesity, diabetes, and learning and developmental disabilities.

Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to environmental hazards and household chemicals as causing and contributing to many of these diseases. Healthy Child Healthy World aims to educate parents, support protective policies and engage communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.
