The Sigg company keeps coming up with more and more fabulous, fun designs! This one in blue and green called the Earth Sigg Water Bottle is really big, like 33 oz. big! By filtering my own water and filling up a Sigg instead of purchasing water in a plastic bottle, I'm not only saving myself money, I'm helping to save the environment!

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.

Although I am NOT ADVOCATING PLASTIC BAGS!!!, this is a great little organizing tool to keep all of that white waste tidy. Can maybe use it as a fancy handkerchief dispenser when you're finally able to kick the plastic habit...?
