Earth-In Canteen is a stoneware water bottle made in Northern California from American clay. A truly sustainable, American-made and healthy canteen!
The story goes like this: "After a friend told me that my old scratched-up Nalgene plastic water bottle caused breast cancer, my husband and I co-founded Klean Kanteen with fellow Chicoan Robert Seals, believing an “inert” stainless steel bottle was a simple solution to toxic plastic problems. We quickly realized a stainless bottle made in China was complicit in a new set of problems like overseas shipping, pollution, human-rights abuses, and possible heavy-metal leaching. A lot of our customers shared concerns over Made in China or complained the stainless water bottles tasted metallic."
A decade later, these real issues led them back to a Julia Butterfly Hill question that began it all: "why doesn’t someone make this (plastic water bottle in one hand) out of this (stainless steel bowl in other hand)?"
They realized a safe, durable material "was right under our nose all along: Clay from the top layer of dirt, Earth. Earthen stoneware ceramics."
In 2014 they launched Earth-In Canteen, a return to an ancient way to carry water, free from hidden health hazards. They hand-craft these beautiful ceramic bottles in Northern California from American clay and certified lead-free, non-toxic glazes.
Now you can have the peace of drinking pure water from a perfectly natural, honest & sustainably-made canteen.
