“Klean Kanteen’s Stainless Steel cup set are a high quality, durable, well made and versatile alternative to single use plastic cups. They have an electopolished interior which makes for easy cleaning, they are dishwasher safe, easily stackable and transportable and won’t break.
With young children in our house, these cups are used all the time. They avoid the need for plastic cups as an unbreakable and safe alternative and they also don’t retain or impart flavours. I love taking these cups out for picnics and catch ups with friends. They fit together so well, are a pleasure to use and are so easy to pack and carry, it’d never even cross my mind to pack single use plastic cups again.
I think the best eco-innovations are the ones where they not only save you from using single use plastic, but they are such a great product in their own right that you can’t imagine life without it. This is one of those. Highly recommended.”
