Welcome To Feed The Green Canteen
We offer 18/8 food grade, stainless steel canteens. They are BPA free, environmentally friendly and contain no inside chemicals or liners. The slim design fits in most cup holders and bike cages. The wide mouth makes for easy cleaning and for adding ice cubes. We also offer stainless steel water bowls for our eco-friendly pets.
It is estimated that in the United States we use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. The average American uses 167 plastic water bottles per year. Also, 425 million plastic bottles and other beverage containers end up in the trash each year. It takes 17 million barrels of oil per year to make all the plastic water bottles in the USA. So, what can we do about this?
We want to help our earth by minimizing the carbon footprint and decreasing the use of plastic bottles. One person with one canteen can prolong numerous lives, while replacing potentially thousands of plastic bottles.
