(Chico, Cali.)- Klean Kanteen, the original maker of lightweight stainless steel water bottles was honored last Wednesday at the California Ocean's Day Reception in Sacramento, hosted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Surfrider Foundation, and the Ocean Conservancy, among others.

The Oceans Day Steering Committee honors one legislator, one government administrator, and one business annually, each of which has demonstrated leadership and significant action to address our oceans' problems.

According to Leila Monroe, Oceans Policy Analyst for the NRDC, “Klean Kanteen's products provide great alternative to the use of plastic bottles, which contribute significantly to the problem of marine debris and have many health and other environmental implications. Additionally, we applaud Klean Kanteen's efforts to improve the entire production cycle and its efforts to spread education on important environmental issues.”

California Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi also presented Jeff Cresswell, co-owner of Klean Kanteen with a special award of recognition from his office for the role Klean Kanteen has played in curbing pollution.

These awards are the most recent in a series of major environmental accolades and initiatives for the company. The brand recently became a member of the Conservation Alliance, joining over 160 member companies and a history of almost 7 million dollars in contributions to conservation efforts since the organization's inception in 1989.

“Klean Kanteen has played a part in local and regional conservation efforts here in California for some time,” Jeff Cresswell, Klean Kanteen Director of Awareness stated. “But joining the Conservation Alliance allows us to be a part of a larger conservation effort nationwide and is a great new addition to our family of environmental partners.”

In 2008, Klean Kanteen became a member of 1% For The Planet, as well as donating 20% of Fall profits of its pink renewal bottle to the Breast Cancer Fund. The brand also partners with NatureBridge, Take Back the Tap, the Yosemite Institute, and many others.
