I know some of us would prefer to buy a metal water bottle not made in China for any number of reasons. And most people would like to support U.S. businesses.
I get promotion emails from a local outdoor adventure store and they are carrying a new product - a metal water bottle made in the US!

Thanks for sharing. For some reason I thought Nalgene was also made in the USA. I bought the BPA-free one of Nalgene over the Camelback bottle because the Camelback was made in China. Am I confused or was your point just about the bottle beinng the only metal one made in the USA?

I keep being tempted to buy one of those metal water bottles but I've had one before and it made water taste really funny.

I'm not seeing anything on the website that states the ecousable stainless bottles are Made in the USA. Please show me where that information comes from. Thank you.

It says where the company is "based",, but unless I'm overlooking it I'm not seeing any statement of where their products are made.

Nan, I see you found that information under the "bottles" tag, not the About Us, where I looked for it first.

Ecousable bottles are manufactured in China, not the USA.

It would be in everyone's best interest if they reseach the CoO and not go by the highly paid marketing.

everyone of those reusable bottles including the plastic ones have had mold grow in them after about 6 months of using them and I have had to toss them out . I know that the plastic ones are not good for the environment either but Im going to be done with buying those bottles for a while until I find one that does not grow mold in the bottom of it .
