Co-op Branded Growlers

Co-op Growler Co-op GrowlersWe are very pleased and excited to offer the latest Co-op branded product, the Co-op Growler for bulk. Now you can store your bulk liquids, grains, seeds, granolas, etc. in this dark amber growler sized bottle.

The Co-op has markers for writing on glass that can be easily wiped off when you need to use the growler for another bulk purchase. These bottles were made and screened for us in Seattle. At $8.95, they are a great option for bulk and a great way to show your Co-op love. Grab one for yourself, give one as a gift. They’re the perfect blend of beauty and utility. Find them in the Bulk departments of both store locations.

Re-Purpose your Canning Jar with a Cuppow! Lid

family cuppow hand cuppowcuppow jars garden cuppowCuppow Lids have been one of the most fun and useful items I’ve found this year. They look like sippy lids for canning jars, and well, that’s kind of what they are. The idea behind the lids was to take glass pint jars and wide mouth pint jars for canning and turn them into drinking jars that you can safely travel with. I love drinking out of old jars but have more than a few stories about trying to drive with one full of hot tea. The lids fit right into the canning ring to create a tight fit and are perfect for your favorite on the go drink.

“This is CUPPOW – our solution for easier drinking from a canning jar. The canning jar already makes an awesome platform for a travel mug: it’s easy to clean, made of heat-resistant glass, cheap, durable, and when sealed it doesn’t leak. The only problem is that with their large openings, canning jars are not great for spill-free sipping while on the move. So we adapted it – made new lids that lets us drink like a boss from virtually any wide or regular mouth canning jar. It’s a simple eco-friendly alternative to poor-performing and messy disposable hot cups, and over-built and expensive travel mugs.

Cuppow was conceived of and designed by Joshua Resnikoff and Aaron Panone, and we’re proud to have developed a product that we look forward to using every day. That means it works great, it’s super durable, it’s made in the USA, it’s phthalate and BPA free, it’s recyclable, and it doesn’t break the bank.”

New Colors From Klean Kanteen and the Return of the Klean Kanteen Sippy Bottle!

The return of our most popular item from Klean Kanteen, the sippy Kanteen, with a new improved sippy top.

Kid Kanteen® Stainless Steel, BPA-Free Sippy Cup

“Every new parent wants to make sure their baby’s environment is as healthy as possible. Klean Kanteen® is proud to offer our own Sippy Spout-equipped Klean Kanteen. Every Kid Kanteen® Sippy comes with a polypropylene dust cover and handy attachment loop so it can be hooked on bag or stroller. Head off on your day’s adventure with safe hydration for your little people.

The bottle is made from 18/8, food-grade stainless steel that’s totally free of BPA and other toxins. Because stainless steel itself is safe, we don’t need to coat the inside of the bottle with a plastic or epoxy lining, which is one of the main differences between a stainless steel Klean Kanteen and aluminum bottles.

Food-grade stainless steel is used in the brewing, food and winemaking industries too. It’s the material of choice because it doesn’t retain or impart flavors. So apple juice tastes like apple juice, nothing more, nothing less. You can rest assured that your child’s sippy is totally safe and flavor-free. Our Sippy is designed for small hands too, so it’s easy to hold. And the large-mouth makes cleaning as simple as a quick scrub with soap and water or a trip through the dishwasher.”

 

The new Sport Cap on an all new line of colors from Klean Kanteen.

Kid Kanteen® Stainless Steel Sports Bottle

“It’s arguably most important for kids to stay hydrated and always drink from a healthy, non-toxic bottle. Small and lightweight, the 12oz Kid Kanteen® Sport is the natural progression for kids who are ready for a more grown-up delivery system than the Sippy Cap. The entire cap is BPA-free, super durable and the new soft silicone spout makes the Sport Cap 3.0 safe for new teeth. The cap’s relief valve has been redesigned to be classroom-friendly, no chirping or whistling! The 12oz size is great when space is limited, like for a lunchbox or backpack. It’s the perfect size for water, juice and other drinks.

Like every Klean Kanteen®, the 12oz bottle is made from high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel that’s totally free of BPA and other toxins. Because stainless steel itself is safe, we don’t need to coat the inside of the bottle with a plastic or epoxy lining, which is one of the main differences between a stainless steel Klean Kanteen® and aluminum bottles. And it won’t leach toxins or flavors like plastic bottles.

No matter how many times you refill it, no matter what you put into it, your Kid Kanteen® will keep your child’s drinks fresh, crisp and clean tasting. The large-mouth design fits ice cubes and makes cleaning as simple as scrubbing it with soap and water or throwing it in the dishwasher. Yet the slim design fits into just about any cup holder, stroller, or car seat.”

Keep Cups:Barista Standard Cups that are Re-Usable and Recylable

Keep Cup is an Australian company looking to create an alternative to single use to-go cups. Their containers come in a wide variety of colors.

“KeepCups are ‘barista standard’ because a trained barista can make awesome to go coffee in them.  They come in the four standard takeaway sizes and fit under the group handles of most espresso coffee machines. When your coffee is made in a KeepCup the cream on the shot is not broken and the portioning of milk to coffee will be correct.  KeepCups have thermal properties similar to paper so they are not a thermos. Replicating the functionailty of disposable cups KeepCups are splashproof, not a sealed container.

Many small acts make a phenomenal difference.Compared to a disposable paper cup, KeepCup (including coffee) reduces landfill by up to 99%. Compared to a disposable paper cup KeepCup (including coffee) reduces water use by up to 85%.

We chose plastic to manufacture the KeepCups.  They are made from single component materials, they are lightweight, easy to carry and have low embodied energy in manufacture.

KeepCups are BPA free and non-toxic.

To ensure they are user friendly they are also dishwasher and microwave safe and fit  into most bicycle and car cup holders.”
