Shame on Sigg (Bottles)

There are a lot of toxins around us and we try to take steps to be clean and green. Going green for us means being kind to Planet Earth and also protecting ourselves and embracing all that is natural (really natural). Most know that plastic bottles are wasteful and the popularity of re-usable metal bottles, like the ones from Sigg, have become popular. I have used their bottles and also given them as gifts to friends, so I was particularly disturbed to read the news that suggests the company misled consumers about the safety of the bottles. It’s bad that the bottles tested positive for nasty chemicals but worse that the company appears to have hid that info from consumers. There’s no other word for it: it’s shameful. Ad Age has even more on the story.–Stef McDonald
