Back in 2002 Robert Seals started cobbling together the first Klean Kanteen prototype from materials he bought at his local hardware store in Chico, California. Two years later he introduced the 800ml Klean Kanteen. Known today as the Classic, it was the first BPA-free non-lined metal bottle available on the market. Designed to be the healthier and safer alternative to polycarbonate and lined aluminium bottles, it has changed the way people think and drink ever since. In 2005 Robert passed Klean Kanteen onto the Cresswell family who have since continued to improve and expand the company with a simple goal; to provide affordable, safe, high quality products and to promote health, sustainability and environmental awareness.
