How to Keep It Cool: SIGG

12Sep06

The hiker and Starbucks addict in me adores these Sigg bottles: they’re non-plastic (no funky aftertaste or leaching) and good looking to boot. True to Swiss-quality engineering, bottle top styles are interchangeable so you can change your Sigg to suit your needs–from camping in the woods or bringing coffee to the office. The dizzying array of retro-modern designs inspires a little fun for today’s on-the-go lifestyle. True marriage of form and function.

The Fab Factor: 1) According to the company, it’s the only water bottle on the market with an inner coating resistant to fruit acids and isotonic drinks. Non-toxic. 2) Made from lightweight aluminum Sigg bottles are pre-cleaned with eco-friendly cleansers, and designed using solvent-free paints. 3) Simply gorgeous.

Visit Sigg for stores. Available internationally.

    There are still some people who think this products are ecofriendly. BUT: To produce aluminium products there is a lot of energy needed which doesn´t make the product ecofriendly at all.
    There are some plastic products which are, (even if it doesn´t seem to be), much more ecofriendly.
    You always have to see the whole thing.

    You have a good point. No product is perfectly eco-friendly and there are pros and cons to every material and every product. Yes, aluminum like steel does involve lots of energy upfront to manufacture. There are drawbacks as well with plastics such as the use of petroleum for manufacture and leaching of chemicals into what we drink. Some folks have complained about leaching from plastic bottles so seeking a metal alternative is one option. Both are easily recyclable materials.
