How is a growler good for the environment?However you use a growler, its reusability, durability and materials make it an awesome product for the environment. Win-win! By reusing your easy-to-clean and durable growler hundreds of times you will save the waste of the glass, aluminium and plastic that would have gone into making the bottles that would otherwise contain your drink. Further, buying straight from the place your beer was made means you will eliminate the greenhouse gas emissions that would have been caused by transporting heavy bottles of liquid all over the country and globe. At the end of its long useful life your stainless steel growler can also be recycled. It's better for your health and the environment right to the end.
When will I use a growler?Not only is a growler good for transporting beer, it can also can hold juice, cold brew, organic wine or "booch" (slang for kombucha). It can even be used as a large, reusable water bottle. A growler can be used to transport your favourite drink on a hike, camping, bike rides, picnics, parties, and dinners without creating waste. It's stylish and unusual, which will get it noticed so you can spread the message about reusing to everyone! And, did we mention that it can save you money? By buying straight from the producer without any packaging, your beer is likely to cost less than the pre-bottled variety. Our growlers make a great Father's Day gift, as it is a practical gift that he can use for years to come. Klean Kanteen's stainless steel pint cups (pictured above) are a handy accessory to take on the go also.
