Reusable Bottles BPA Free for Everyone!

by Tiffany in Natural Product Reviews

T-ball Gear and Pura Water Bottle

I have dedicated a fair amount of time to exploring safe sippy cups and sports-type bottles for kids on this blog but haven’t really explored the options for mom and dad. Of course it is important that we aren’t sucking down BPA either and having a water bottle around is one of the best ways to ensure we actually drink our water throughout the day.

The PET disposable bottles are probably the worst thing we could use. They are single use and add to the waste stream. They also have leaching issues of their own. So what kinda of reusable bottles are out there? Quite a few actually.

If we go to the regular store to buy a bottle we need to be on the lookout for one that is stainless steel or made with safer plastics. I usually shop online so I can research my options and there are quite a few. One of my favorite online stores is Reuseit and they have every reusable water bottle out there I think! It is water bottle heaven.

Klean KanteenMy top pick is the Klean Kanteen! They are uber stylish, easy to clean, and made with stainless steel. My kids have baby sized ones and I have a 27 ouncer. They have the orginal stainless outer finish and the new colored ones that are pretty HOT. They have been extensively lab tested and proven to be 100% free of heavy metals and toxins. The plain ones remind me of camping gear…which I love. I also REALLY like the options they have for caps…flat, loop, sports-top, sippy, etc. I have had mine for around 2 years now I think and it still looks and works great. My kids cups are still going strong too.

In the competition for best water bottle in my world is the Intak bottle by Thermos. It is a beautiful polycarbonate bottle with lots of great features like a one push locking top so you can pop the top and drink with one hand. It is see through so you see water levels and it has a loop to attack to backpacks or your belt. It is the BEST bottle for sports, hiking, backpacking, camping, etc. Read my detailed review of the Intak Bottle.

I have just added a newer water bottle to my household though and it is pretty comparable to the Klean Kanteen but perhaps a bit more sleek and stylish. It is the ThinkSport Bottle and it is also a bit more like a Thermos with a stainless steel vacuum sealed construction.  It keeps contents hot or cold for hours yet it is still lightweight and it has a screen so that you can toss loose tea in there without worrying about choking on tea leaves. :) I am pretty impressed with it but I feel like I am walking around with the Cadillac of water bottles in my hand. It is pretty expensive IMO at $34.00.

We also have a Pura water bottle, the pink one in the photo at the top of this post. They are service grade, electro-polished stainless steel, have no chemical liner, they are reusable of course, BPA free, and they come with a lifetime warranty. The lids are stainless steel as well, so that you don’t have to worry about any plastic pieces touching your water. The colors are pretty awesome too.

Next up would be Sigg…a bottle made by a Swiss company. These bottles win hands down any competitionSigg Water Bottle for most attractive looking bottle. They have a large selection of designs for adults and kids. Apparently they are so poular that many retailers are having a hard time keeping them in stock and the Sigg company is being stingy so that they actually have some to sell themselves! You can find some on Amazon though. These bottles are aluminum with a water based epoxy coating on the inside. While they are very attractive they will get dinged up if you aren’t careful with them.

Nalgene is another big seller. These are plastic bottles but they are made with non-leaching HDPE (#2) and LDPE (#4) plastics and they are Bisphenol A free. Some people just prefer plastic. They are not my thing but it is cool that Nalgene is now offering safer options.

CamelBak Performance Water Bottles are relatively new ad they are plastic too, albeit a great deal more sporty. They are designed for hikers and sports bikers with a Big Bite Valve and straw that allows access to Built NY Sleevewater without taking your eyes off the trail or road. I like the see-though factor and the cool colors.

And of course you may also want an insulated sleeve to keep your beverages at the right temperature. I personally like the Built NY ones. The Klean Kanteens fit perfectly.

    I would love a Klean Kanteen.

  • Adriana

    Tiff, I just stumbled your post and left a comment there as well.

  • Amy H

    I love the Klean Kanteen for kids!

  • Alana

    I have the Camelbaks and love them. I have the Sigg and am not to thrilled with it, it leaves a cort of after taste. I’d love to try a Klean Kanteen as a non-plastic option.

  • Ashley

    That thinksport bottle sounds pretty cool. I would love to try something like that.

  • Rhonda

    I found your site several days ago and I LOVE it! I wish… I wish… for anything Kleen Kanteen.

  • Lisa

    I’d love the Kleen Kanteen for adults!

  • Mommy Bee

    Sign me up for the ThinkSport! What a practical, yet stylish product!

  • Sarah

    I would love the ThinkSport! Perfect for nice, ice cold water during a middle of the night nurse-a-thon!!

  • Keisha

    The ThinkSport is my choice!. It has a stylish flair suitable for all occasions. Plus I’m thinking it’s less likely to show wear and tear.

  • Gabreial

    I love these non leaching bottles! My son actually got a thermos for 2nd grade and he loves it. They created a great smaller line for kiddos. My youngest is a little jealous of his brothers new gear so I’d love the SIGG little fireman bottle you linked to or something similar.

  • Marta Costa

    I would love to try the Kleen Kanteen for the kids.

  • Becca

    I would be thrilled with the ThinkSport. You have opened my eyes to so many decisions and this is one of them, so a huge thank you!

  • Jennifer D

    The ThinkSport bottle looks fantastic. I really like the idea of being able to add loose leaf tea and hot water and just filtering it through the screen.
    Love your blog too!

  • Jennifer D

    I stumbled this post!

  • I would love to win the ThinkSport bottle for adults. I also set up a link from my blog to your blog. Thanks!!

  • I like the Safe Sippy. Thanks for the great reviews and giveaways!

  • Jassica

    I would love the Safe Sippy for my son. Almost all the sippy cups are my daughters, and I need to build his stash. I’ve been waiting to try the redesigned Safe Sippy and wasn’t aware it was out yet!

  • The ThinkSports is intriguing — I’d be impressed by a good, non-toxic option for thermos-like things!

  • Cheryl

    We have a bunch of Kleen Kanteen’s (both adult and kiddo versions) in our house and I’d love to have a ThinkSport to add to our adult collection, but the safe sippy is temping for my little one. I guess if I have to choose I’d go Safe Sippy.

  • I’d love the ThinkSport; it looks really neat, but pretty out of my price range. I just got a Safe Sippy after waiting on it for 7 months (preorder) and will be saving it for the new baby since it took so long.

  • Amanda

    safe sippy! my kiddo is just using sippy’s now, she’s 13 months, and would grow into this and use it for years to come! we’re using a bpa free nuby you recommended and she likes that but i’d love to try other options! thanks again for an awesome and informative blog!

  • Sexy bottles! LOVE the new colors of the Kleen Kanteen series and that Cadillac sports bottle is super sweet.

    I just had to throw out a Foogo for my little one :-( so would love one of those too!

    Heck, we’ll take anything not plastic!

  • Oops, guess I got so excited over the giveaway I didn’t read very carefully. :-\

    We’ll take either bottle as I’m trying to replace all plastic drinking bottles in our house, including the ones for the adults!

  • Sarah

    The ThinkSport sounds awesome. To be able to have an entire bottle of tea without the leaves “interfering” easily …… oh the possibilities!

  • I want the Kleen Kanteen. I’m a little leery of Sigg because they won’t tell you what their lining is made of, and I’ve only heard positive things about the Kleen Kanteen! Thanks!!

  • I’d love to win a Kleen Kanteen!

  • I’d like the ThinkSport – it looks awesome!!

  • Jennifer

    I like the ThinkSport bottle. So sleek!

  • Michelle

    safe sippy would be great for my son!


    I would love to win the safe sippy!

  • Safe sippy please!

  • Olya

    I’d love Safe Sippy for my toddler :) Thank you!

  • Cheryl

    Just wanted to note that I carry the ThinkSport 350ml bottle & it is only $17.99, which is the MSRP, so it is affordable and really great. The bigger 750ml model should be around $21.99 at most retailers-if you paid $34.00 you got ripped off – no way either model should have cost you that much.

  • LeighAnne

    Im not replying primarily because I would like to win…albeit that is a nice perk. I would reply anyway and tell you that you made a huge impact today on me. I had no idea that the PET bottles had leaching issues. You eluded to that in one small sentence…and from there I did my own search on it and found a wealth of info. To think I could have gone on using the PET bottles for who knows how much longer, is scary. I have been focusing on getting safer cups for my kids…so I haven’t been able to afford to start looking into them for ME. I drink water out the wazoo too. Anyway, thank you! Obviously, I would be ecstatic to win the adult bottle so that would be my preference. :) Thanks for being such a cool mama! ~LeighAnne~

  • LeighAnne

    I stumbled upon for you as well (link at the bottom) because I’d love to try and win the kiddo cup for my daughter who is madly in love with the color orange. Great information…keep it comin’ mama! ~LeighAnne~

  • Stacey

    Think Sport please :) We have several Safe Sippys and LOVE them!

  • I’d love the CamelBak!

  • Tori

    I would love the Safe Sippy :) That shade of blue is my son’s favorite color!

  • Deborah

    ooooh! I’d love the ThinkSport. :)

  • Michelle

    I’d love the ThinkSport bottle. Thanks for the reviews on the reusable bottles out there!

  • Do I have to choose?! Well if your making me choose (even though both would be great to have) I would put my kids first and say the SafeSippy! Thanks for the offer!

  • The ThinkSport is awesome!

  • For me, it’s all about my kids. I pick the SafeSippy.

    Thanks so much for an awesome site!

    Thanks for being so generous with all of your give aways.

  • Kleen Kanteen Please please please :)

  • Erin A

    Great to continue to see options for reusable water bottles that aren’t plastic. your reviews were so helpful in the past. we have a few sigg bottles at home that we really like for the adults and preschooler, and a thermos foogoo for the baby(great but pricey). I would love to win the safe sippy cup for my youngest, since the foogo is the only sippy we have for her. Thanks for all your posts.

  • Molomatic

    Wow, my daughter would love the Safe Sippy and I would love the ThinkSport. Since I have to pick one I’m going with the ThinkSport – I’d share! Thanks for all of the good info!

  • Melissa Moulder

    I am happy with any safe water bottle you would like to send my family. I have a Kleen Kanteen for my daughter which she loves…I read your blog every day and am so appreciative of all your research! Thanks so much!!!

  • Jeannie

    The ThinkSport sounds exactly like what I have been looking for. Really needed one that keeps things cold!

  • julie

    I would love the safe sippy for my son. He needs a real durable cup that will last, and of course, be safe =) Thanks for these giveaways! It gives us moms a chance to get something for free that is also safe for our kids!

  • Bridget

    A thinksport would be so awesome! It would be a great way to get my water in (that would sure make my midwife happy!) I can’t believe you can even throw in loose tea! I can taste the oolong now!

  • melissa

    I would love the kleen kanteen for baby. yay!

  • Heather

    I love love love your site!!! I would like the sigg for kids.

  • Mom to Lucas

    The safe sippy looks fabulous! Who wouldn’t want that!?!

  • Oh, it’s hard to pick, but I think I”d like the Klean kanteen!!

  • Chandra

    ThinkSport please!

  • Cindi

    The “Think Sport” Bottle for adults is fabulous. My husband rides his bike on the trails. He could really use this refillable bottle for biking.
    He has a birthday in September. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

  • The thinksport sounds great to me. I have a kleen kanteen bottle that I love but it’s not insulated.

  • Sharon

    We have SIGG for the kids and ourselves, but would love to try the Kleen Kanteen. Thank you again for bringing these items to our attention. I love learning so much from your blog.

  • Katie

    I would love to have the ThinkSport bottle! I’m still mourning my BPA-full Nalgene that went in the trash several months back, and I’ve yet to find a worthy replacement. Thanks!

  • Elizabeth

    I’d take either – we are slowly replacing our plastic bottles as budget permits. Thanks for the reviews!

  • I have a Camelbak waterbottle, but I’d love a new adult water bottle!

  • I’d love to try the Klean Kanteen! We want to replace our bottles as our budget allows, and are slowly working on it.

  • I’ll be linking back from my blog too! :-)

  • Stacy

    We love, love, love our Kleen Kanteens and would love more of them. We only have the screw-off tops and sometimes wish we had the sport, pop-up tops. Wherever we go, using them makes a statement!

  • Heather

    Hi, love to try the safe sippy cup!!

  • I’d love the Klean Kanteen. We just bought some New Wave Enviro bottles (stainless steel) from Nubius Organics. Two larger ones for myself and my husband and a small one for our daughter. The only problem we’ve had so far is that the paint on the outside of the larger ones came off a tiny bit when I soaked them upon first receiving them.

  • Hmmmm… I’d go for either one. We can always use another sippy and Hubby is in need of a “manly” water bottle. Currently everyone at home as a Klean Kanteen except hubby, so this would rock for him!


  • Mommyof3

    I’d love the Thinksport bottle………… Thanks for doing all the research!

  • I’d love to have the thinksport. I’d also take the safe sippy. Either way they are both wonderful cups.

  • Jillian

    I’d love to win the thinksport bottle. I keep trying to make room in our budget to buy a good reusable bottle, but it never seems to happen. Hope to win!

  • Heather

    I would love to win one…I cant find one in stock for my dd.

    Great post

  • The thinksport is super cool, but my kiddo loves straws! So, sign us up for the safe sippy. Also, I will track back from my private blog… I am a dedicated blog reader of yours for the last 16 months (since baby was born) and appreciate all your great info!

  • Candice

    We would love to win one! Thank you!

  • Carey

    I’d like to try the Thinksport as well.

  • I’d love the Klean Kanteen!

  • Jodi D

    My request is for the safe sippy- but either would be great to win. The ThinkSport looks so stylish- I’ve never heard of those. We do have a sigg for both myself and daughter- love them too!! Good news too about the Nalgene now making a BPA free bottle. Thanks!!

  • shannon

    I just recently stumbled upon your blog and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I have been reading about the Klean Kanteen lately, and would love to win one.

  • Liz J

    I like the Think Sport. It sounds and looks great.


  • Liz J

    Oh I shared on Stumble too. So sign my up for another chance at the Think Sport.

  • Hannah

    I would love one for my daughter- the Klean Kanteen looks nice!

  • Tammy T

    I would like another Klean Kanteen …

  • Trish

    My husband and I have the 40 oz. Klean Kanteen and they are awesome! I was a little worried the water would taste a little like metal, but they don’t. I also like that since my office is air conditioned (a little much in my opinion) the metal walls actually keep the water cool all day. We are expecting a little one soon, and I would love to have a Klean Kanteen sippy waiting for him/her!

  • Thea

    I would love to use the ThinkSport bottle for adults while pregnant – healthy start for the little one.

  • either one sounds great to me! sometimes we are so focused on our little one we don’t get anything green or safer for ourselves!

  • linda

    Mama and Papa could use a ThinkSport bottle.

  • Colleen

    I would love the Safe Sippy since my husband and I both own a ThinkSport bottle (750 mL size). By the way, you can order the ThinkSport bottle from their site for only 21.99…way cheaper than the $34 it’s selling for on Amazon!

  • Greta

    I already have a couple full-sized bottles for me, so I’d love to win the Safe Sippy for my daughter!

  • Elizabeth M.

    The ThinkSport is the one that we could really use in our house. We have refillable water bottles but I just found out that one of the Nalgene bottles we has contains BPA so it needs replacing. This would be perfect!

  • Melissa

    I would like to have the safe sippy for my children. Thank you for this offer.

  • I would love the Thinksport! Love that it has a filter in it. that rocks!

  • Elizabeth

    I would love to win the Thinksport bottle.

    I started using glass water bottles after I was scared off of plastic and disappointed by metal! I found one that I enjoy so much that I started selling them on my green blog:

    Whether or not you buy our bottles, please at least stop using plastic disposable bottles! Thanks :)
