Unfortunately, we left one of our stainless steel Klean Kanteen water bottles at a hotel in Worcester Massachusetts on a road trip we took in early July.  I’ve had a difficult time replacing it because Arbour Environmental Shoppe (where I’d originally purchased it) sells out within a few days of recieving each shipment and I always seem to arrive at their door a day too late.   Fortunately, there’s another source in town: www.plasticfreeplanet.com.

Plasticfreeplanet is run by Jackie MacNair who sells the bottles on-line and at the Ottawa Organic Farmer’s Market each Saturday.  (BTW, it’s cash only on Saturdays but if you want to pay by credit card you can buy on-line and then pick-up at the market.)  She sells four sizes of stainless steel water bottles–355 ml, 532 ml, 800 ml, and 1183 ml–and four styles of lid–sport lid, sippy cup lid, loop lid, and flat lid.

I wish Jackie all the best in her new role as enviropreneur.


Ottawa Organic Farmer’s Market, 10 am to 2 pm every Saturday year round at the Canada Care Building behind the Canadian Tire at Heron and Bank.
