Sigg - "The healthiest & safest reusable water bottle in the world!"

Sigg, established in Switzerland in 1908, is a leader in providing reusable drinking bottles. The bottles include a baked on, crack resistant liner which helps keep harmful chemicals out of your water . . .one of the BIG problems with disposable, plastic water bottles.  The liner is also leach-proof, so no worries if you decide to use your Sigg bottle for juice or energy drinks. 

We have found Sigg bottles to be an everyday staple.  They work great for taking drinks to school, after school sports, at the office, and even running errands on the weekends.  Having a special bottle for your little one is a great way to help encourage better water drinking habits.
Sigg bottles are available in 6 sizes, and more styles than we can count!  The .3L/10 oz. is suggested for little one's between the ages of 1-3 years old, the .4L/13 oz. bottles are a nice size for ages 3-6 years old, and the .6L/20 oz. bottles work well for 7-8 year olds.  The bottles are also available in a 24 oz., 34 oz., and 50 oz.

From solids to prints, there's sure to be a style to match your look.  Pictured above is Zac Effron sporting his Sigg waterbottle.  Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Gardner, Gisele Bundchen, and Kevin Dillon are among the many other celebrities that have been spotted with their Sigg bottle.
