Reusable Water Bottles

I have converted my family to Sigg aluminum bottles and we LOVE them. Sigg bottles are lightweight, great looking, and great for the environment. Currently Americans add over 30 million plastic water bottles to our nation's landfills – everyday! I know since converting to the reusable bottles my family has noticed a difference in the number of bottles in our recycling bin! When making eco-friendly choices remember the 3Rs - reduce, reuse, recycle. The first two are really the most important - although it is great to recycle items, recycling takes energy, also plastic doesn’t recycle 100% like glass or metal does so it is best to eliminate as much plastic use as possible. At first the Sigg bottles seem expensive at $20 a bottle, but think how often you buy bottled water at over $1 a bottle - it adds up quick. Now before heading out we fill up our reusable bottle at home and fill it up throughout the day at restaurants, business water coolers, etc. Check out Sigg bottles at
