SIGG Water Bottles: Hip But Not Necessarily Green; Were Madonna and Cindy Crawford Hoodwinked?
Date:7/25/2008

Real Green Goods Raises Questions about SIGG and Recommends Greener Bottle

Concord, NH (PRWEB) July 25, 2008 -- These days, when you see a picture of Cindy Crawford or Madonna, they're probably sipping water from a SIGG bottle. "Carrying a SIGG bottle has become a green badge of honor but, sadly, it may not be that green," said Debby de Moulpied, founder and owner of Real Green Goods, a NH-based green department store.

According to de Moulpied, SIGG bottles have several secrets that don't support their environmentally friendly image:

1. SIGG bottles are made out of virgin aluminum. "Aluminum is the best recyclable material, so using virgin material is nonsensical and anti-eco," said de Moulpied.

2. SIGG bottles are lined with an epoxy based resin. "SIGG is adamant that it is not a plastic but, based on the definition of epoxy, I don't know how that's the case," she said.

3. SIGG bottles are independently tested for safety. "How independent can a study be when you pay for it?" she asked. "Bisphenol A (BPA) is seriously unhealthy stuff you don't want leached into your water, and SIGG bottles might not be BPA-free."

4. SIGG won't divulge its bottle lining ingredients for fear of copy cats. "They claim their proprietary right to secrecy like Coca-Cola," said de Moulpied. "Last I saw, the ingredients were on a can of Coke."

Now for the good news. Eco warriors who want to avoid plastic bottles and possibly BPA have a safe and greener choice, according to de Moulpied: Klean Kanteen.

"I have no affiliation with Klean Kanteen," she said. "Before I invite any product onto my store shelves, I do thorough research and often contact the company with questions. Klean Kanteen exceeded my high standards. Their reusable bottles are solid, food grade, 18/8, partially recycled stainless steel. They're not lined and they're made responsibly in China." Klean Kanteen is a transparent company.

Klean Kanteen bottles are available in several sizes, tops, and colors. "I'm sure Madonna and Cindy Crawford will love them," said de Moulpied.
