BPA Free Water Bottles



If someone were to ask me what I would hate most to go a day without, it would be a tie between my water bottle (filled with ice cold water of course) and my Berts Bees chapstick! I literally carry my water bottle with me everywhere, so when all this talk about BPA Free bottles came about, I had to get one.
I bought myself a SIGG Lifestyle Bottle and a Nalgene "On the Go" bottle. SIGG had super cool designs and colors available, so it was hard to resist but I wasn't a big fan once I started using it. It has a screw top so it takes awhile to open, if youre just using it around the house that's no problem, but if your working out or on a hike that can be a big pain!
Im also pretty picky about my water staying cold, and the SIGG bottle didnt seem to keep its temperature for very long, Im guessing that has something to do with the fact that its made of aluminum. The most positive thing I found with the SIGG bottle was that its very durable!
As for my Nalgene "On the Go" bottle, I love it! Its tall and thin so it fits in my hand easily (I have to use 2 hands for their thicker bottles) and it also fits in the cup holder in my car which is a huge plus!
The top slides open so its easily accessible and very durable.
For more information on both brands visit www.MySigg.com and www.Nalgene-Outdoor.com

A woman after my own heart! I'm attached to my water bottle and my lip balm...although I haven't upgraded to anything fancy yet ;)

I LOVE my Sigg water bottle! You can get different lids for the Siggs also, so you dont have to worry about unscrewing that particular lid.

Do you know if the plastic for the other water bottle is recycleable?
