NEWS: Bottles and Anti-Cola

Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink?
You know...I just do not know who to trust these days...even plastic water bottles are potentially dangerous. Certainly, increasingly, I trust less and less the people who claim to have my interests at heart i.e. corporations in general.

So I just bought two of these Sigg bottles and will never have to use a plastic bottle again.

Should have done this ages ago but been busy and this contamination was the final straw. Plus now I never have to buy water again, ashamed I do it at all. Plus I never have to deal with plastic bottles! Hurrah!

Got the idea from City Hippy reader, Diane Clark of Japan, who asked Penney Poyzer about this in the series of interviews we are doing - Diane's question appears in one of the parts of the interview yet to be posted.

Sigg 1 Litre Drinking Bottles
Manufactured in one piece aluminium, they combine strength with light weight and have a hygienic lining which prevents odours and contamination from the contents of strong drinks such as isotonic or alcoholic!

Also have I mentioned that my new favourite fizzy Anti-Cola drink these days is Santa Cruz Organic Orange & Mango? Awesome drink! Available at my local Sainsbury's and probably yours. Not pricey either. Mmm good!

My 18 month old daughter loves her groovy Sigg bottles, and they are so much better for her than drinking out of nasty plastic cups made for toddlers. The water she drinks tastes so much better out of them.

My 10 year old son is also a fan of his Sigg bottle that he carries to school every day.

Down with plastic bottles!
