Water Bottle Alternative?

So, the big hot trend right now?  Trying to find a way to replace your Fiji, Evian and possibly Nalgene bottle with something not only more eco friendly, but also human friendly.  Living in Canada, our tap water has been proven to be just as good as bottled water, but we are STILL paying more for water than we are for gas.  $1.14 / litre for fuel – $1.50-$4.00 / 750ml for water.  Rumours (and statistics) show that our old plastic bottles are leaking toxins into our water which we are ingesting everyday. Some say aluminum or stainless steel is the way to go – my problem, this has not been around long enough to study the effects of these metals on the human system.  However, it makes sense.  That is why I sought out to find something that I can use and replace my old bottles with – lord knows, it has to be good looking.  This is where I found Sigg – the Swiss State of Art.  Of course, leave it to the friggin Swiss to sit up in the Alps and come up with brilliant design ideas for water bottles.  I have included a few examples from their product line – and it ranges broadly.  They offer kids, leisure, sport, thermo, casual and a whole line of accessories to go along with that water bottle.  Apparently Madonna is now using a Sigg bottle – can you have better publicity – wanna get something sold?  Put it in the Kabbalah wielding hands of Madge – what could look cooler as she firms up those triceps in some Kama Sutra induced yogic stretching exercises.  Check it out – Sigg is where its at!


I could not write something on this GD blog after a months hiatus unless it was good.  This is.  In a world where we are fascinated with disorders and diseases comes a whole new brand of things that we can label ourselves.  It used to be that anorexia and bulemia were the only two known eating disorders (sorry obesity was always apparent), and we all whispered when our best friend was showing tendencies of this in high school, but now we have a group of idiots putting together a whole other list of things.  Try DRUNKOREXIC – ok, sounds appealing, sounds like a few people we all know.  They are saying that these are people who forgo food calories in order to drink and still take in their reccommended daily calories – problem?  I see none.  These are responsible human beings who do NOT want to get fat and therefore are taking the proper precautions in order not to do so.  Another good one is ORTHOREXIA for all you health nuts – these are people who are WAY too concerned with exactly what goes in their mouth.  I think its a little bit sick when we live in a world where we cannot just call people drunks or vegan tree hugging crunchy granola’s, but rather tack REXIA on the end of everything and call it a disorder.  What about LABELREXIA – all you idiots out there who want to throw a label at the rest of us so we can feel a part of something.  god, idiots….  For more on this story check out Now Magazine  they are really good at hating everything, right here in Toronto – unless you are poor or feeding abandoned babies, soy milk out of a goat bladder, than they might like you, but the rest of us are fucked.
