Eco-friendly? SIGG wasn’t. Member of 1% for the Planet? SIGG isn’t.

Well, to be fair, all new SIGG water bottles—all those made since August 2008—are BPA free. If you have an earlier one, here’s info on how to return it. Not sure if the 1% for the Planet deal is still going forward, however, since Patagonia just ixnayed their partnership following SIGG’s reluctant embrace of truth (they had, for years, been believed to be BPA-free).

    BTW: SIGG is a member of 1% for the Planet. (I'm no fan of the company, but this is something that could easily have been checked.)

  2. That's not what we're talking about, actually. We're talking about "eco-friendly." And, Patagonia, co-founder of 1%, did reject partnership. But you'd know that, Fact Check, 'cause you read the above, plz?

  3. I have no problemo with new Siggs, health-wise. I have a big problem with management that lies its way into business success in the green demographic. Did they replace said management? Would be int'd to know. As far as I know, their president was busy apologizing, not on permanent vaykay.

    Just stick with Sigg! Yeah they made a big mistake, and the way they hide the reality was not honest. Now that they have apologized and they are as clean and eco-friendly as ever! Still the best choice over chinese craps, or chemical leaching stainless. I don't even know why Patagonia have to pull Sigg out of the 1% For the planet just because they got fed up with that BPA issue, the fact is, Sigg is eco-friendly, and have been eco-freindly. Why? They can be reused, recycled, and they have been reused and recycled! Simple! As they say, and I say, Swiss Quality since 1908.
