I have to admit I am somewhat obsessed with my stainless steel water bottles. My 4th grade teacher Mrs. Murphy warned me that my OCD tendencies could manifest themselves into odd obsessions as an adult. Well, in this case it certainly does seem like she may have been onto something.
What’s not to love though? They can be cleaned with simple White Vinegar and water and they last forever, but not in the way plastic bottles do. 700 years it can take a plastic bottle to begin decomposing. No thanks, that is way too much guilt with my water. I rotate between the iconic Sigg, Kleen Kanteen and my new favorite bottle from Good Life Bottles. It’s 100% BPA-free, non-leaching & toxin-free. What makes it my favorite though is it’s made from recycled materials and has dual walls with a vacuum-seal cap. What does that mean to me and you? It keeps liquid hot or cold for up to 24 hours! None of my other bottles do that. No, I am not a paid spokesman, (although if they are looking for someone:) but would just love to see more people kick the plastic habit and do something so simple that could make such a huge difference.
On a side note check out what Sigg is doing with CafePress. The Sigg bottles are know for their design appeal. I personally think about buying one every time I walk by them in Whole Foods. But now they are offering different levels of customization such as adding your own pictures or words of wisdom.
