When we went to see Guster, they made a point of showing that they no longer drank from plastic bottles, but they all used recyclable aluminum water bottles. I meant to look into them but forgot about it until I saw these Sigg bottles at Wegmans.
I have read things about plastic water bottles like they are made from PET (petroleum based plastic) and only 14% of them end up being recycled. Of the ones that are recycled they are just reduced to a lower level plastic that is then not recycled. 30 million PET water bottles go into US landfills EVERYDAY.
Reusable water bottles sense. Especially the fact that bottled water isn't any different than tap water. Why pay for it?
I used to have a Nalgene bottle at work... but someone TOOK it! Yuck! Who does that? Well, it is gone now and I am looking at these cool Sigg bottles. I had a few questions like, is the aluminum harmful? The website fact page says that the bottles have liners that ensure 0% leaching.
Now I just have to decide what design I want.
