Stainless steel sippy cups by Klean Kanteen are your healthier alternative to plastics. Klean Kanteen is Bisphenol A Free!

Stainless Steel Sippy Cups - a safer choice for baby!
In her groundbreaking book about endocrine disrupters, Theo Colborn, author of the Our Stolen Future, writes about the harms of BPA on the reproductive organs of mice and rats, and how this problem chemical can bring about changes in tissue that resemble the early-stage breast cancer, among other effects. She maintains that the most at risk individuals are people with "developing endocrine systems": pregnant women and newborns, followed closely by young children and women who might get pregnant.
The Klean Kanteen sippy cup alternative to plastic also gets the thumbs up from the Sierra Club where they suggest switching "to polypropylene, or avoiding plastic altogether and switching to glass or lightweight stainless steel containers" (Nov/Dec 2003). Mothering Magazine has named the Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup a "Cool Stuff" product in their July/August 2006 issue.
The Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup is showing up more and more in Canada, and we're proud to be one of the first retailers in Canada to be selling the Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup. Parents Canada magazine features the Klean Kanteen as a stainless steel alternative to plastic sippy cups for baby. We are so pleased to see that Canadian parents are taking a pro-active role in the health and safety of their little ones.
Something else to consider when choosing a sippy cup and/or water bottle alternative is the fact that plastic is not as sanitary as stainless steel, and that bacteria forms and grows rapidly in standard plastic water bottles. A study done at the University of Calgary, Alberta (Canada) and published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health concluded that alarmingly high levels of bacteria were found in our very own children's water bottles. Researchers collected 76 water bottles from elementary school students to conduct their study. More than 13% of the water bottles analyzed contained bacteria that "exceeded safety standards". This was bacteria found in the actual water of bottles our children were drinking directly. Klean Kanteen bottles are dishwasher safe and a much more sanitary option for our babies and children.
We also love the fact the Klean Kanteen water bottles are re-usable and 100% recyclable. This helps to reduce wasteful use-and-toss containers, consuming less over time. Here is an interesting report called Trashing the Oceans. Safer for baby AND better for the environment - you'll LOVE Klean Kanteen.
The coloured Klean Kanteens are painted, and just like anything that’s painted, it is possible to chip or scratch the paint with normal use. In particular, if you have a young child using the bottle, if they drop or bang it around, it is liable to scratch the finish. The coloured bottles are simply irresistible to most young children, however, and they tend to cherish their own water bottle regardless. To prolong the life of your paint, handwash your bottle and don’t use abrasive agents to clean it. Alternately, the stainless steel bottles are completely unfinished. The Brushed Stainless finish is the best choice for ultimate durability.
