Back in 2002, there were no stainless steel water bottles for private hydration, and the medical and health problems linked to plastic use weren't widely known. Seeing the problems early and clearly, Robert Seals, the inventor and founder of Klean Kanteen, started cobbling together the very first prototype with things he bought at the local hardware shop in Chico, California. The Klean Kanteen torch was passed to the Cresswell family in 2005, and they've constructed upon Seals' authentic vision by developing an ever expanding line of durable stainless steel alternatives to replace toxic plastic and displace single-use container pollution. With the mentorship of the dad Darrel Cresswell, brother/sister team Jeff Cresswell and Michelle Kalberer have shepherded the company through the challenges of expansion and growth and are equally in the forefront of the firm's charitable work and policy advocacy.
Since releasing the initial Kanteen at 2004, significant measures have been taken to lower our environmental footprint. We became a part of 1 percent For Your Planet in 2008, also have contributed more than 1% of our yearly sales to nonprofits working to safeguard and encourage the wellness of our incredible planet. In 2012, we proudly joined the ranks of Accredited B Businesses. Meeting the rigorous and independent B Corp standards of performance, accountability, and transparency has been the type of challenge we enjoy, along with our membership will continue to guide us over the years ahead. In addition to embracing business policies that support environmental and fair labour practices, Klean Kanteen spouses with likeminded nonprofits and environmental organizations working to educate the public about environmental and health problems. Please take a moment to see a little more about our spouses and friends.
