I feel like I’m one of the few environmentalists that does not have a SIGG bottle. Frankly, I have a little plastic blue jug that’s probably killing me softly with toxins or some other detriment; but honestly I’m lazy to get my groove on with a steel replacement. Alas.

However, SIGG bottles have taken the world hostage with their cool designs, eco-friendly construction, and endorsements from Oprah to Ellen to Martha. In an effort to tap into the creative force of their loyal fans, SIGG is launching a contest called SIGGART to see who can come up with the coolest design for a new bottle. If you win the grand prize your bottle will be produced, you’ll get 100 to give away to friends and fam, A portion of sales of your winning design will be donated to Surfrider Foundation. Flippin’.

One of the judges selected to help decide the winner is none other than Guster’s Adam Gardner. (You can read our interview with Gardner here.) As you can no doubt see throughout this site, we’re a big fan of Guster and their impact on turning the music industry green; particularly through Gardner’s organization Reverb, which he co-founded with wife Lauren Sullivan. Gardner will join Wanda Weller, Director of Design for Patagonia, Scott Harrison of the Surfrider Foundation, Stephan Lack, the CEO of SIGG Switzerland, and one of our favorite green bloggers, Jill Fehrenbacher of Inhabitat.

So jump on over and take a look. Currently, I’m a big fan of the turtle design. But, I’m partial to turtles so don’t take my word for it.
