Klean Kanteen’s TKPro bottle (distributed by Whitby & Co) is a finalist in the 2020 in the UK Outdoor Industry Awards, in its Accessories Category. The reusable and plastic-free insulated bottle was selected from 120 innovative products entered by manufacturers and distributors from across the outdoor industry
Garry Woodhouse, sales and marketing director at Whitby & Co said: “This award shortlist is such a great achievement and one of many successes Klean Kanteen has had, such as the ISPO Gold Award we received for the same product earlier this year. We have more projects on the horizon, more happy customers and now we are just counting down towards the 2020 awards!”
Garry added: “The consumption of single-use plastics continues to have a devastating impact on our environment. As a result, customers are increasingly seeking sustainable solutions. Klean Kanteen has been fighting against plastic pollution since 2004 and this award shortlist is testament to Klean Kanteen’s investment in developing sustainable products for customers across the world.”
The next stage in the awards process will be for the public to vote on the 30 finalists to establish the winning product from each category and the Product of the Year. Consumer voting will take place online via the OIA’s website and UKClimbing’s and UKHillwalking’s websites.
The 2020 winners will be chosen by a prestigious judging panel including retailers, journalists and gear testers from Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, OIA, Tiso, TGO, Camping, UKHillwalking and Trail.
