October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are celebrating life and raising awareness with this pink ribbon flip straw bottle from Nathan Sports:

Nathan stainless steel bottles are BPA free and perfect for exercising with their bike bottle cage fitting shape.  The wide mouth is easy to clean and fill.

Nathan Sports donates 5% of their proceeds of each bottle to breast cancer research non-profits.

During the month of October we will double the benefit and donate an additional $2 from the sale of each pink ribbon bottle to the Stephanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.

Show your support for breast cancer research and buy a Pink Ribbon Bottle today.

The response to our SIGG Bottle Return Program has been incredible.  Thank you to everyone who is participating and sharing news of our offer.

Many people have written in for more details.  Here are the most frequently asked questions and the answers.

“When does the program end?” We will accept returns until October 1, 2009.

“When will my coupon expire?” The 40% off coupon code returns receive expire 30 days from when we issue them. For example, if we receive your bottle on September 20, we will date the coupon expiration for October 20.

“Is this available worldwide?” Yes! We are happy to accept returns from other countries.  Your new bottles can be shipped international first class mail at reasonable rates.

“Can I use free shipping?”  Unfortunately, no.  We can not allow more than one coupon to be applied at the same time.

“Can I still send you bottles if I didn’t buy them from your store?”  Absolutely.  Anyone who wants to upgrade from a SIGG to a truly safe bottle is welcome to return them to us.

We invite you to email us if you have additional questions or need a personal recommendation.


If you would like to participate, here’s how:

THANK YOU for the overwhelming response to this offer.  The program ended October 1, 2009.

We updated this post with the SIGG Bottle Return FAQs.

We feel obligated to report that the SIGG company, a manufacturer of water bottles we previously sold, recently announced that their bottles produced before August 2008 contained Bisphenol-A (BPA) in the lining.  A SIGG statement maintains that “The bottles were thoroughly and regularly tested in both the USA and Switzerland and all tests revealed absolutely no migration or leaching of BPA or any other substance from the protective inner liner.”

While this assertion may or may not be true, we remain frustrated that many of our customers bought SIGG bottles expecting them to be BPA free.

To satisfy our customers and our own desire to see the world populated with truly BPA free items, we are offering a SIGG Bottle Replacement Program.  If you would like to participate, here’s how:

1) Send your bottle back to us at Baying Hound Ltd. 349 Tibet Rd Columbus OH 43202.  We recommend shipping with US parcel post or first class mail.  Include a note with your email address.  We will accept packages postmarked October 1 and earlier.

2) We will email you a discount code for 40% off a Klean Kanteen, Blue Q, Earthlust, Nathan Sports, Thinksport or Guyot Designs bottle as a replacement.

Blue Q, our latest and greatest bottles

3) All SIGG bottles collected will be recycled or returned to the SIGG corporation.

If you never bought a SIGG, you too can save on a new bottle.  Just use the code ‘notasigg’ and get 20% off your bottle order at www.BayingHound.com through Setpember 15.

When I see a display like this in a big box store:

cheap bottles

$9 for a 700 mL bottle?

I am reminded why we sell Klean Kanteen, Nathan Sports, EarthLust, Blue Q and Thinksport bottles, not no-brand cheap things.  It’s because our bottles have:

*quality of materials ~ Our bottles are created from high quality (surgical grade) stainless steel.  Discount bottles? Usually aluminum of indeterminate quality, maybe with lining of indeterminate quality

*quality of manufacturing ~ Our bottles are made to strict specifications so the tops always fit and the sizing is consistent. A discount manufacturer approached us once and we asked for a sample bottle. It leaked, had rough edges around the sipping surface and was out of true.

*ethical manufacturing standards ~ All the manufacturers we carry regularly inspect their manufacturing facilities to ensure employees are paid fairly and treated well.  If a discount bottle manufacturer doesn’t share their manufacturing ethics, the logical conclusion is that they are cutting corners somewhere.

*customer service ~ Our manufacturers are established businesses making bottles for the right reason: to give consumers a safe durable drinking vessel.  If a customer ever has a complaint, the manufacturers replace the product and address the design flaw (if there was one) quickly.  Those other bottles sometimes do not even list a manufacturer to contact if and when you have a problem.

*profits shared with charity ~ We donate 1% of all sales to various charities through our 1% for Good program.  Purchases of Klean Kanteen and Earthlust bottles go one step further as they are members of 1% For the Planet.

Most good things in life cost more, as they have more benefits to people and the planet.

The start of school is around the corner for many families.  It means time to get back to packing lunches, after school activities, and a routine.  Even adults without kids return from vacation and re-establish routine.

Why not add in one eco-friendly step this autumn?  Here are six simple green changes you can try:

1) Walk or bike to school or work once a week.  You’ll love the endorphins, the environment will love the lack of gas pollution.


2) Convert your plastic bottled water habit to a water-from-home habit.  A stainless steel water bottle will save you money in the long run, eliminate waste, and give you BPA free beverages.  We recommend a 12 ounce klean kanteen with sports top or EarthLust 13 ounce bottle to fit in a children’s lunch box.

3) Pack your lunch once a week or more.  It’s easier to eat healthy local foods when you pack them yourself.  birdtote2

4) Use a reusable lunch bag like our totes from Blue Q and utensils like the microbites from Guyot Designs.  Save money and eliminate waste!

5) Enjoy your morning hot beverage in a reusable cup.  It’s easy to run through the drive through or stop at a coffee shop on the way to school or work, but those paper and styrofoam cups really add up in the landfill.  Bring your coffee or tea with you from home or ask your local barista to fill up your reusable mug.  Most will be happy to do so and some even offer a discount for bringing your own!


6) Don’t forget to do your back to school shopping with reusable bags.  We now sell beautiful b.b.begonia foldable lightweight totes that make switching to reusable bags easy.

If you want to save a little green, use coupon code ‘greenschool’ at www.BayingHound.com for a 10% discount until August 31!

Are any of you planning back to school changes to benefit your health and the environment?

blue q bottlesA writer friend, Chris, recently saw our Blue Q bottles and had to have one.  I asked her to use it for awhile and write up her opinion.

“Well, ask and you shall receive (sort of). I love Klean Kanteens, but being a finicky consumer, wished that they had more…. pizzaz. Well, now they (sort of) do. Granted, these bottles are NOT Klean Kanteen at all. In fact, they are made by a different company all together. BUT they fit KK lids, so essentially they are KK-esque (but not in different sizes) with ‘tude.

The designs are gorgeous; colorful, exciting, visually pleasing and they have just a pinch of sauciness (but you can opt for the saucy-free versions too)! They hold 20 oz of your favorite beverage and travel well, of course.  Never has being BPA-free been so appealing! Bye-bye boring, hello sassy!”

If you have to have a sassyBlue Q bottle yourself, hop over to the store.  They’re only $17.50 each.

Blue Q takes discarded plastic water bottles and grainsacks, uses safe inks to print on sassy designs and creates funky functional bags of all sizes.  Baying Hound is now carrying the coin purses ($3.59), zipper pouches ($5.59), handy totes ($9.59) and overnighters ($17.59).

We also stocked up on the Blue Q stainless steel water bottles. Manufactured in an ethically conscious factory and printed with lead-free inks, these bottles are so cute you might have a hard time picking a favorite! $17.59 each.
