A review of SIGG bottles
|SIGG Blooming 600ml (8263.10), Junior Eco Warrior 300ml (8227.00), & Swiss Cross Black Touch 1litre (8025.50)|
I've been using reusable water bottles for years now but have been recently lucky enough to be given SIGG bottles for the whole family.
Initially, I was impressed with the variety of visual designs and size options available. My partner, who used to be a product designer, was impressed the aesthetics of the masculine Swiss Cross Black Touch 1 litre bottle, and has proudly taken to work everyday since receiving it.
Mine is cute, and a convenient 600ml size which fits into any of my handbags easily. I was curious as to whether SIGG would actually live up to it's claims about having no odour or metallic taste that can occur in some metal drinking bottles, and it did - neither my partner or myself could taste any metallic taste, or smell any odours.
A month on, my 5 year old stepson, is still enthusiastic about using his little Junior Eco Warrior bottle - which is impressive considering how quickly he can bore of things. He chose to take it to Kinder for 'Show & Tell' and talked with his class about how using his new bottle 'helps the animals in the ocean' (not suffer from plastic pollution). He can easily turn the drinking nozzle himself, and it has a protective cap on top that keeps the drinking piece clean. Having him drink out of the bottle is a great way to keep track of his liquid intake, and it travels with him every time we leave the house.
A SIGG bottle is definitely on the higher end of the price guide, but their quality, environmental and health consciousness is superb, and it doesn't take long to save money when compared to regularly buying water in plastic bottles. I highly recommend getting a reusable bottle you enjoy using daily and feel good knowing you are reducing plastic pollution ;-)
