Recycling your PET plastic water bottles is good… but using a reusable water bottle is much better for the environment. You’ve been asking for it, so here it is – a Rock the Earth reusable water bottle by our friends at SIGG.
Oil for plastic, oil for shipping, oil for refrigeration and, in a small % of bottles, oil for recycling – and sadly most PET bottles go to landfills. Worldwide, over 60 billion tons of plastic waste is produced every year. Plastic is particularly damaging because it is not biodegradable and plastic particles eventually become part of the food chain - as they have, for example, in our oceans. In some parts of the sea, there is five times more plastic than plankton. Neil Seldman, a waste recycling expert, has labeled our plastic problem as potentially more dangerous than global warming.
SIGGs are Swiss-made and are extruded from a single piece of pure aluminium for seamless, leak-proof durability. The liner is one-of-a-kind and the true secret of the SIGG bottle. It is a proprietary formula - containing no BPA – which is baked on for the life of the bottle and remains flexible and crack-resistance despite how dinged up the outside of the bottle might get. Basically, if your SIGG takes a licking, you can keep on sipping.
The new 20 oz. Rock the Earth SIGG Water Bottle is available as a new or renewing membership gift at the $35 level.
