So, this post is a big #fuckyou to the folks @kleankanteen. I bought one of your thermal bottles this winter. It spilled into my bag a few times. Why? Because the design lacks a clear indicator of it's opened or closed. But I figured, that's on me. My bad. I should have closed it. I lost that one and bought the pictured water bottle. I almost went with a different brand, but this one was on sale. A week ago, it leaked in my bag. Thankfully my bag is from the great folks @patagonia, so the 20 oz of water stayed in one pouch and didn't ruin anything. When I pulled everything out, the lid was ... closed. I figured I must have closed it when I was pulling it out and must have left it open. Today, it spilled in my bag again, soaking three battery-operated electronic items and my leather purse. I pulled out the water bottle carefully. The lid was ... closed. Maybe the lid was just defective. Maybe two times in a row it was open and I closed it while removing it from the bag. The only thing I do know for sure is that the lack of clarity over whether the spout is opened or closed is a simple design issue that could easily be corrected. The other things I know are that this bottle is in the trash and I'll never use #kleankanteen every again.
People often tell me they struggle most with avoiding plastic water bottles when travelling. It is definitely more challenging! Security at airports makes taking your own water through impossible. However you CAN take an empty refillable bottle in with you and find somewhere to fill it up on the other side which saves you having to buy the ridiculously expensive bottles in the airport too! Here's my @kleankanteen freshly filled at Exeter airport. Getting a paddle onto the plane was fun!

Every morning I use to hurry to work and find my Coke Zero or diet Pepsi. I realize now that by doing that I was increasing my insulin, and causing my body to become resistant to insulin. Switching my habits to start having tea in the morning has helped my mood, energy, and awareness. #intermittentfasting#fasting#kleankanteen#celestialtea

The feeling of an icy drink in hand on a hot summer day is bliss 🌊 // Whether at the park, on the beach, in the woods, or on the city streets we all need hydration on-the-go and there's no excuse for single-use plastic to be a part of your refreshment anymore 🚫 // This @kleankanteen steel pint equipped with a metal & silicone straw (for those of us who have the habit of chewing anything in our mouths 😬) was my best friend on the beach at @migratewithus last weekend 💙 // It's handy caribeener strap clipped right onto my festival pouch (and our backpack, and it clips on my tote strap when in the city) and kept my cup with me through dancing and adventuring 💃 // Single-use plastic cups, straws, and utensils should be obsolete given that there are affordable, durable, reusable options out there that won't pollute our oceans with miles and miles of trash that is known to not only kill marine life like turtles 🐢 and birds 🕊, but that we also know ends up in the bloodstream of fish that we (not me, for precisely this reason) eat 🐟🐟 // Honestly, do I still need to explain this? Don't bring single use plastic to the beach. Just don't! Go grab yourself some reusable goodies from @kleankanteen and be prepared the next time you're off on a summer adventure 🙌
