SIGG was founded in 1908 in Switzerland, where it remains a must-have water bottle. SIGG bottles are designed and manufactured from a single piece of pure aluminum, giving them a uniform, seamless construction. A solvent-free, eco-friendly powder-based coating is baked onto the exterior of the bottle, creating the brilliant exterior. The interior of the bottle utilizes the SIGG EcoCare liner, a non-toxic coating that is baked onto the walls and remains flexible and crack resistant throughout the life of the bottle. The finish of the liner helps to protect the user from bacteria and mold growth. The lining is taste and odor neutral, so beverages will taste simply like beverages, every time. The SIGG EcoCare liner is is made form 100% BPA free and phthalate free ingredients. Swiss Made SIGG bottles exceed FDA requirements, having been independently tested and proven to have 0% leaching. SIGG bottles are a perfect fit for every member of the family, with over 100 unique designs. They are designed to be reusable and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their very long lives.
