I am excited to intro­duce to you a GREAT web­site that car­ries eco-friendly prod­ucts called Urban Can­teen!

The Urban Can­teen man­u­fac­tur­ers refill­able bot­tles used for hold­ing water, smooth­ies, juices and teas. It is con­structed of 100% BPA-free, food qual­ity stain­less steel so it is free of tox­ins and won’t leach chem­i­cals. The Can­teens are highly durable, yet weigh only 8 ounces each and eas­ily fit into most cup/bottle hold­ers. A gen­er­ous open­ing allows for easy clean­ing and will accom­mo­date full-size ice cubes.

All Urban Can­teen water bot­tles are made from food-grade 304 stain­less steel, So, when shop­ping for a safe metal drink bot­tle your safest and best bet is to choose one that is made of 304 food-grade stain­less steel even if it means spend­ing a lit­tle more up front.

I was sent to review two of these fan­tas­tic Stain­less Steel Urban Can­teen Water Bot­tles in both pink and black. My opin­ion of them? They totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions!! Not only do you know that you are drink­ing safely out of one of these metal drink bot­tles, they are totally eco-friendly and eco-chic to boot!

We know too much plas­tic ruins the earth. And plas­tics con­tain­ing BPA ruin our health.
BPA is short for bisphe­nol A, and stud­ies have shown that it can cause can­cer and other med­ical ill­nesses in ani­mals.
Well, some com­pa­nies are pio­neer­ing the move to BPA-free prod­ucts, to keep us humans safe.

We’ve seen ref­er­ence to the dan­gers plas­tic poses to marine life and wildlife, garbage that we humans directly and indi­rectly deposit in the oceans or on the earth, but how clearly have we received the mes­sage? Not clearly enough it seems!

Once ani­mals, marine life or wildlife ingest plas­tic, thou­sands of spines lin­ing the throat and esoph­a­gus make it nearly impos­si­ble to regur­gi­tate. The plas­tic can lead to par­tial or even com­plete obstruc­tion of the gas­troin­testi­nal tract, result­ing in decreased diges­tive effi­ciency, ener­getic and repro­duc­tive costs and, for some, starvation.

Plas­tics inges­tion doesn’t always cause death, but there are clearly health risks!
The frus­trat­ing, yet hope­ful aspect is that humans can eas­ily begin address­ing the solu­tion, with­out major lifestyle changes.
It’s as sim­ple as reduc­ing pack­ag­ing and mov­ing towards alter­na­tive, biodegrad­able mate­ri­als and recycling.

And this is why I am cer­tainly grate­ful for this com­pany called Urban Can­teen!!

Per­fect for water, smooth­ies, juices or iced tea, the Urban Can­teen holds 12, 18, and 27 ounces and will keep you hydrated all day.  Urban Can­teens alle­vi­ate con­cerns about tox­ins or chem­i­cals because they are 100% BPA-free.  Unlike other metal bot­tles, Urban Can­teens don’t require any spe­cial lin­ing so the risk of toxin leach­ing is eliminated.

Each Urban Can­teen weighs only 8 ounces mak­ing it con­ve­nient and easy to take every­where!  It has a large enough open­ing to accom­mo­date full size ice cubes or even small pieces of fruit, but eas­ily fits into most cup hold­ers whether they are in your car, on your bike or on your stroller.

Urban Can­teens will last for years and when you finally decide to replace it, your Can­teen is 100% recy­clable, mak­ing it healthy for you and the planet.”

You can choose from their exten­sive line of prod­ucts all neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left to make shop­ping with them a com­plete snap!

    I love the Stain­less Steel Can­teen in pink and 27 oz. I chose the larger size because I find I often run out of water with my smaller size one.
    I fol­low on Google Friend.
