SIGG bottles are known to be eco-friendly and BPA free. When confronted by consumer advocates about BPA, SIGG has always claimed that their bottles do not leach BPA but never admitted that they do not contains this endocrine disrupting chemical.
That is, until now. SIGG had been manufacturing bottles that contains BPA prior to August of 2008. Bottles manufactured after August, 2008 use a new “EcoCare” liner that is 100% BPA free.
It is important to note that test results by third party labs show that the old liner does not leach BPA. They are safe.
If you own a SIGG bottle and want to find out if yours contains the old liner just look inside. The old liner is bronze in color. The picture below shows a bottle with the old liner.
The second picture below shows a bottle with the new “EcoCare” liner. Notice that the liner is a light cream color:
What to do:
If you own a bottle with the old liner and are concerned, you can exchange your old bottle with a new one that uses the new liner. Send an email to email@example.com to ask about getting a replacement.
- We carry SIGG water bottles and will continue to do so. We are very disappointed in the way they’ve handled their public relations regarding the old liner & BPA questions from consumers. However, we believe that SIGG aluminum bottles are safe with the new liner. Published test results shows that they do not contain BPA.
- We have verified that all SIGG aluminum bottles offered at our stores uses the new liner. We found one batch of bottles that was from the old design and have discontinued it.
- Our own kids will continue to use their SIGG bottles. We do not plan on replacing them.
