I have 2 reusable water bottles; 1 Klean Kanteen for my car and 1 SIGG bottle for work.
Last year (when I was a green newbie) I purchased both brands to try them out to see which one I liked better. What I have learned over the year is that I have no preference. I love both of them. Equally.
A co-worker of mine saw me walking to the water cooler with my SIGG bottle and started asking me questions about it. Of course I was more than happy to share info with her and I encouraged her to purchase a reusable water bottle of her own.
Last week she walked into my office sporting this beautiful turquoise SIGG bottle that she purchased from a local company called REI.
Here is what their site says about my co-worker's beautiful new SIGG bottle:
More than just pretty, a SIGG water bottle is extrusion-pressed from a single piece of aluminum for seamless, leakproof construction!
A taste-neutral, food-compatible enamel is sprayed and baked to the interior surface resulting in a crack- and impact-resistant bottle impervious to the acidity of wine, juices, soda pop and isotonic drinks.
(Insert by me: How is it that I have never thought to put wine in my reusable bottle? Not to take to work of course....)
Interior coating will not leach into fluids
Rugged aluminum bottles are completely recyclable at the end of their long lives.
I read some of the reviews that were written about the SIGG bottles and here are how they were summarized:
Pros: Good capacity. Durable. No plastic taste. Good grip. Retains temperature well. Lightweight.
Cons: Hard to clean. Dents easily.
The reason my co-worker picked SIGG over Klean Kanteen is because SIGG is made in Switzerland. (It is not the USA but in her eyes it was better than China, where Klean Kanteen is made)
Whatever the reason, I am just glad that she bought a reusable bottle. That she is using her reusable bottle. And that she loves her reusable bottle.
(I have to admit that I am a teeny bit proud to have aided in her purchase of a reusable bottle)
