Klean Kanteen Giveaway


We all know that from a fiscal standpoint, bottled water doesn't make sense. From an ecological standpoint, bottled water is equally as bad. According to Food & Water Watch, bottled water production in the United States used the energy equivalent of 32 & 54 million barrels of oil to produce & transport plastic water bottles in 2007. That's enough oil to fuel about 1.5 million cars for a year!

As if that isn't bad enough, about 75% of those plastic bottles end up in our landfills or as litter. Plastic bottles are estimated to sit in landfills for 450 years before they degrade. But "degrade" is rather vague; will a plastic water bottle ever fully decompose?

This is why a reusable water bottle is such a good investment. They can be a bit pricey, but they will pay for themselves easily if you stop buying bottled water. Plus, the benefit of less plastic sitting in our landfills is priceless!

Which leads me to BMIM's current giveaway. One lucky reader will win a 27 oz pink Klean Kanteen with a loop cap. Klean Kanteens are made from high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel that's completely free of BPA & other toxins. Because stainless steel is safe there is no need for a liner (that may or may not contain BPA) like many aluminum bottles on the market. The caps are BPA free as well, however if you want to purchase a stainless steel cap, Klean Kanteen sells them (not included in this giveaway).

Klean Kanteen sells this water bottle online for $17.95 however I've seen them for around $25 at stores such as Whole Foods. I totally think they are worth the money! My daughter has used her Klean Kanteen for over a year now & it looks brand new. I love that you can put it in the dishwasher, the mouth is wide enough to put ice cubes in, & there is no lingering aftertaste. Quite simply, Klean Kanteen water bottles are amazing.

Here's what you need to do to enter this giveaway:
  • Leave a comment with a way to contact you. Easy!


  • Become a Google follower of BMIM (public please). Come back & leave a comment stating you did so.


  • Go to Facebook & "like" BMIM. Then come back & leave a comment stating you did so.


  • Go "like" Klean Kanteen on Facebook. Then leave a comment stating you did so.


  • Go "like" Seventh Generation on Facebook (they graciously donated the Klean Kanteen), then come back & leave a comment stating you did so.

That's it! The winner will be picked at random using Random.org on Monday, February 14th at 9pm PST. Good luck....you could win a cute, pink Klean Kanteen for Valentine's Day! Thanks to Seventh Generation for donating the Klean Kanteen.

  1. I'm a fan of all those sites you listed and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Klean Kanteens! Each family member has one and we use them daily. Love that they go in the dishwasher. Would love the pink one for my mom (a breast cancer survivor) since pink is so symbolic for her. Thanks!

  57. Done. I "like" Seventh Generation also. I think it would be SO great if they banned plastic bags in Hawaii. We should at least be like Europe and charge for each bag used at a store. It's nice to get a discount for bringing a bag, but I think the impact would be higher if we charged for using plastic.
