Klean Kanteen, a California-based company that provides sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic, has joined the 2013 America’s Cup as the Official Water Hydration Solution and Sustainability Supplier.
The America’s Cup has committed to delivering a single-use plastic bottle-free event and Klean Kanteen will provide spectators with convenient free water hydration stations for reusable bottles.
Klean Kanteen’s water hydration stations will be found throughout the America’s Cup Park, at Pier 27/29, and America’s Cup Village at Marina Green, and will be open for the full Summer of Racing from July 4 through September 21.
From its inception, Klean Kanteen has sought to provide sustainable, plastic-free solutions for consumers. Nine years ago, the brand introduced BPA-free, stainless steel water bottles. Today, Klean Kanteen offers everything from stainless steel food canisters, to pint cups and baby bottles, all designed to reduce reliance on disposable plastic containers. In the past several years the company has also partnered with numerous large events around the country to drastically decrease their waste and plastic consumption through reusable containers.
