SiGG & Cuipo Helping To Save The Rainforest One Meter At A Time

26 Apr

We as a family love SIGG Switzerland bottles and are very lucky to get to review their products from time to time. When our latest assignment was delivered, we were really excited about what SIGG had provided.

You see, the latest addition of SIGG bottle designs are so much more than a cute image on your bottle. Yes, the SIGG Cuipo range are just as bold and brilliantly designed as always but when you purchase a bottle from this range you actually save one square meter of a Tropical Rainforest.

The first set to be released are available in two sizes. These are 0.6 and 0.3 litre bottles.

What’s more with every bottle comes a unique code that once activated online costumers can actually view the square meter of Rainforest they have just saved via google maps… Seeing really is believing! Just visit http://www.cuipo.org/ to activate

The CUIPO PRESERVE PANAMA

The Cuipo Rainforest Preserve is located near the Darien National Preserve in Chepo, Panama. Historically, dense forests and rocky terrain shielded the Chepo Rainforest from the outside world. Improved transportation made this land accessible and development has threatened this ecosystem. As agriculture, logging, development, mining, and tourism expand into these pristine areas, rainforest is gradually disappearing. Cuipo has acquired 13,354,600 square meters (3,300 acres) of rainforest to set aside for preservation.

Funds from the Cuipo bottles are donated to “One Meter at a Time” a Cuipo non-profit foundation dedicated to preservation of the tropical rainforest. The foundations aim is to safeguard and preserve each square meter of rainforest in perpetuity.
By teaching skills required for gainful employment in preservation, One Meter at a Time also employs locals and indigenous groups as park rangers and stewards of the preserved rainforest.

John Oswald, Co-founder of Cuipo said “We are thrilled to be expanding the Cuipo brand to include reusable bottles. SIGG not only produces top-quality bottles, but the company also produces a highly environmentally responsible product.”

Scott Shea, UK Commercial Director for SIGG said “Cuipo is a great social enterprise which genuinely makes a differencein the safeguarding of our planet and shares SIGG’s core values. We hope our collaboration will raise the profile of Cuipo in the UK”

And finally what we had to say (we meaning myself and three little monsters)

The SIGG Cuipo bottles are beautifully designed and as always, made to a high standard. To know that your purchase has helped to save something as important as the Cuipo rainforest makes buying one of these bottles all the more rewarding! Its not often you’re given the opportunity to see just where your money is going and how it will make a difference. SIGG have given us that and have done so in a brilliant fashion.

With our busy life’s, I admit that the Rainforest is often far from my mind. But looking into what Cuipo are doing, my eyes have now been opened to the importance of our Rainforest and how it plays an important part on earth!

Did you know that plants from the Rainforest have actually been discovered as cures for certain types of cancer? Well… I shamefully didn’t and my sister has overcome a cancer battle! This left me wondering… Did the Rainforest play an important part in keeping my little sister alive?

As for the SIGG Cuipo bottles and their designs, I must admit, these are just the cutest ever. What’s more, its thanks to SIGG and its 0.3 Cuipo Tiko, that the toddler has waved good bye to his baby bottle for good. He just loves the smaller Cuipo bottle and feels so grown up while using it.

The other designs we received were the 0.6 Fight Deforestation bottle and the 0.6 B.Y.O.B bottle. We actually took all three bottles away on holiday with us during the last half term. We chose the SIGG bottles particularly because We like to use Them in the car while embarking on long journeys. Not only does the water/juice contained within the bottles taste fresh and chilled for longer, but the lockable caps prevent any back seat spills which is a god sent for any parent.

And below is the B.Y.O.B. bottle that my daughter has claimed £17.99

There is another bottle in the Cuipo range and that’s the ‘Steve the sloth’ bottle. We wasn’t sent this one but my guess is its just as great as the others…

SIGG – The only way to drink water!

1 Mar

Little man (aka A boy with Aspergers) is a real fuss pot when it comes to eating & drinking, mainly as a result of his impaired senses. One thing little man particularly cannot tolerate, is that of warm water/juice that lacks freshness or leaves an after taste. This does pose problems as he therefore doesn’t drink as much throughout the day particularly during school hours. It’s bad enough that 99% of the time he arrives home with an untouched lunch bag, but when his drink remains untouched you begin to worry about dehydration.

Thankfully, I recently discovered SIGG and have started working with them here on the blog. I was keen to discover if this renowned company with a long and unique history of success could possibly help me solve the problem.

SIGG, who was founded in Switzerland, specialise in reusable aluminium water bottles. What’s more, SIGG’s brilliantly designed water bottles are 100% recyclable, therefore helping to significantly contribute to reducing the global carbon footprint.

The high-performing SIGG EcoCare liner located within the bottle ensures that water retains maximum freshness. Given that Little man has very sensitive taste buds, the SIGG bottle is perfect as the EcoCare liner ensures water (juice if preferred) tastes clean and refreshing and most importantly, contains no metallic after taste (something that can send Little man into sensory meltdown mode)!

We were sent the ideal SIGG for Little man! The SIGGNATURE BLACK 0.6L bottle which sports a classic black and red design.

The bottle was of an ideal size, fitting in the Little mans backpack with ease. What’s really great is how well these bottles are made, they’re surprisingly light in weight, therefore not weighing down his backpack, and importantly the bottle does not leak whatsoever, removing the worry of wet mushy sandwiches and damp homework. Sadly, Little man left the bottle at school during half term. He attends a special school for children with autism and aspergers, which is some miles away from home. This means he is collected by taxi (LEA funded) each morning, it therefore wasn’t a case of being able to shoot down the school and collect it myself. However, the fact it was out his bag, at least showed he was drinking from it. I did worry that given the bottle had been stood in the class room an entire week it would end up smelling damp! Though I need not had worried, it washed up fine and the fact it was almost empty showed that little man had been using it, as I hoped he would.

He now takes the bottle to school, in his bag, everyday! He has either water or fresh sugar-free juice and now always drinks it. SIGG has now become an essential part of Little mans school bag, he doesn’t leave home without it!

There are loads of fantastic SIGG bottles to choose from, all in various sizes, colours and designs, with new designs launching every few years. There is also a fabulous kids range with character bottles such as  the loveable Hello Kitty and the awesome Hot Wheels, as well as a line of limited edition bottles. What’s more two of the designs now form a permanent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City… How cool is that!

It’s fair to say that as well as SIGG being a totally productive product, doing exactly what it claims to do in the most impressive way, SIGG are also fast becoming a bit of a fashion accessory too (what with the likes of Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher owning one, they just have to be)!

So… It’s not just hikers & sports personals that use SIGG, but A List celebrities and Little men (just like my Little man)!

The SIGG Facebook page is definitely worth a like, what with a string of awesome competitions being added on a regular basis, plus any need to know updates on some of the coolest new designs to launch, it’s not to be sniffed at!
