Hydrate in style

Hydrate in style

I am not plastic
Water bottle fashion

Did you know that when you fill a dsposable water bottle a quarter of the way with oil, that’s the amount of fuel that went into producing that single bottle? While reusing plastic bottles is an option, chemicals from the plastic that are used in commonly sold bottled water can leach into your drinking water. Why not opt for a reusable water bottle instead?
Sigg invites people from around the world to contribute to the design of its water bottles. The iconic Swiss-made aluminum bottles are eye-catching enough for you to hydrate in style. The baked-on, crack resistant bottle liner is also leach-proof, eliminating concern about drinking unwanted chemicals. Bottle tops come in three versions: sport top, screw top and bottle top so athletes and outdoor enthusiasts can drink in whichever style they prefer and not worry about leakage. Sigg bottles are available in 0.4L, 0.6L, 1.0L and 1.5L sizes depending on the design, with kids versions available in 0.3L and 0.4L sizes. You can visit department stores for these Sigg products. http://www.sigg.com/contact/contact-form/
Klean Kanteen
Klean Kanteen bottles are made from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel for durability and recyclability. Available in a myriad colours, these bottles emphasize simplicity. Because stainless steel is a safe material, they do not need to be lined on the inside with plastic or epoxy. They are also easy to clean, with large curves and wide mouths. Klean Kanteen bottles come in 0.4L, 0.5L, 0.8L, and 1.2L sizes and there are also wide top options. For kids, the leakproof, Kanteen Sippy carries 0.4L of fluid, is designed to be easy for little hands to hold, and features a patented no-drip drinking spout.

Made in the US, Nalgene bottles have been switching from polycarbonate containers to non-Bisphenol-A (BPA) materials such as HDPE (#2 on recycling label), PP (#5 on recycling label), LDPE (#4 on recycling label) and PET (#1 on recycling label). New lines of bottles made from Eastman Tritan copolyester are also being manufactured. Stainless steel bottles have also been recently launched. Nalgene bottles are available in 0.7L and 1L. For kids, the Grip-n-Gulp bottles makes drinking more comfortable for children. http://www.nalgene-outdoor.com/about/distributors.html
