Kablo bottles are made from food-grade borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is known for its superior durability. It is chemically unreactive, sanitary and thermal shock resistant, which is why it is the glass of choice for high-end laboratory equipment, restaurants, and wineries. Borosilicate glass will never impart flavors or leach chemicals into your beverage like plastic and stainless steel alternatives. Read more about it here.
All of our caps, glass bottles, and silicone sleeves are leadless, non-toxic, BPA, BPS, phthalate, and cadmium-free. Our products undergo some of the most rigorous consumer product testing available. We make sure that our products meet and exceed high-bar standards globally such as FDA, CPSIA, California Prop 65 and REACH.
We offer pure borosilicate glass that us undecorated. Cadmium is often found in decorated glassware that is colored or tinted which we do not offer as these metallic inks and pigments can lead to contamination.
All customers who place an order on Shopkablo.com after February 22nd, 2020 will receive a 2nd generation Kablo bottle. If you found our product on Amazon, you can distinguish between the older generation and newer generation by looking for "1st Generation" and "2nd Generation" in the Amazon product titles.
Our 2nd generation Kablo bottles come with a solid (one-piece) 304 stainless steel cap, making them virtually indestructible, corrosion-resistant, and 100% dishwasher safe. This means you will not get any of the toxic glues that 99% of water bottle manufacturers use in their caps. Industrial adhesives used in caps will often break down, off-gassing harmful chemicals that we inevitably ingest. Our one-piece solid stainless steel cap ensures the Kablo quality and safety you have grown to love, and that we stand behind. You will also notice that our bottle, branding, and packaging have seen some updates.
Our silicone sleeves are made out of 100% food-grade FDA-approved silicone. They are BPA-free, non-leaching and non-toxic. Silicone is made of silica, the most abundant compound in our earth's crust. Silica is a naturally occurring element and can be found everywhere from rocks and plants to the insides of our bodies. Our silicone sleeve protects your Kablo glass water bottle against bumps and scratches and provides a gripping surface so you can transport your beverage with peace of mind. We have intentionally designed the sleeve to cover half of the 32 oz bottle to let you monitor your daily intake.
All of our products are made from 100% organic materials derived from natural resources. Borosilicate glass is comprised of 3 natural elements: boron, silica, and sodium.
Our boxes are made of recycled cardboard and they are 100% recyclable. They also make terrific storage boxes.
Our packing materials are 100% recyclable. Bubble wrap is mostly air and lightweight plastic, which cuts down on the amount of fuel burned during transportation and consequently, cuts down on emissions. Use this dropoff locator to find out where you can recycle your bubble mailer.
However, please note that our 2nd generation cap will not fit your 1st generation Kablo water bottle. We advise you upgrade to the 2nd generation Kablo bottle if you are looking to order the spare cap found on our website or Amazon.
Our product is designed in Los Angeles, California but we currently manufacture in the cities of Yongkang, Shanghai, and Pinghu in state of the art glass fab facilities. Over the years we have searched for opportunities to continue manufacturing domestically, but due to the cost of production, we would not be able to offer a competitive price point to our consumers for the quality and materials we use. In the end, we wouldn’t be able to provide an affordable solution to single-use waste, and would not be able to fulfill our mission of providing accessible and reusable glass solutions. Our manufacturers comply with strict FDA regulations and create our products from raw materials that are safe for consumption, and that meet and exceed high-bar standards globally including FDA, CPSIA, California PROP 65 and REACH. All of our products are leadless, non-toxic, BPA-free, BPS-free, phthalate-free, cadmium-free and composed of 100% high-density borosilicate glass.
Kablo glass products are safe and sustainably produced. We have staff in China including our Quality Control inspection team made up of experienced third-party companies that lab test our products, and regularly visit our factories to confirm the quality standard of every production run. Our operations manager works directly with our suppliers to ensure Kablo products are produced with respect for the factory workers safety, our environmental concerns, and protected living wages for the employees. We regularly implement testing through third-party accredited laboratories to meet regulatory requirements from around the world and assure that our quality standards have been exceeded.
We work hard to ensure that the materials and operations involved with manufacturing our products exceed industry standards for environmental responsibility, safety, and fair labor. Bottled water is one of the biggest threats to our planet, with over 100 million non-biodegradable plastic bottles trashed every day in the US alone. Our mission is to eliminate single-use container pollution and deliver minimalist, high-quality products for our customers while doing so. Our products will not impart flavors or leach chemicals into your beverage like plastic and stainless steel alternatives. Our work at Kablo is conducted on an ongoing basis through five primary activities: 1) we establish an agreement with all parties to conduct business in accordance with a Supplier Code of Conduct 2) third-party environmental and social performance assessments and improvements are made every quarter 3) regular factory visits by Kablo and its on-site representatives 4) quality control and inspection for all production runs 5) raw material and product safety testing.
Borosilicate glass can be recycled endlessly without quality loss or contamination. However, it is not recommended that you recycle our glass water bottles curbside with your local hauler as they may not have the necessary equipment to heat and recycle borosilicate glass which melts at a much higher temperature than standard soda-lime glass. Contact your local recycling center to confirm acceptance of borosilicate glass. A good resource for recycling solutions can be found at Earth 911.
