While SIGG has gained worldwide recognition over the past couple years as environmental awareness has risen, their impact on the bottle industry is older than either you or I. Unless of course, there are some of you out there older than 100. If so, I need to update Ecorazzi’s demographics.
Anyways, it’s time to celebrate! SIGG turns 100 years young this year and to mark the occasion are launching Sigg100 — a new site that explores the 100 most significant eco-moments of the past century. Here’s what’s going down:
Visitors to www.sigg100.com will also have an opportunity to chat directly with environmental activists through SIGG Switzerland’s bi-monthly Q&A series. Chat hosts include Academy Award winning producer and author Laurie David; acclaimed actor and environmental enthusiast, Ed Begley Jr.; The Oprah Winfrey show and NBC Nightly News environmental contributor P. Simran Sethi; Founder of EcoFabulous.com and Domino Magazine’s eco-editor Zem Joaquin; and Executive Director of Healthy Child Healthy World, Christopher Gavigan.
Regulars to the site will also have an opportunity to win a free trip to Hawaii to attend the two day Kokua Festival. This is the same music jam hosted by Jack Johnson on April 19th and 20th in honor of Earth Day.
We congratulate SIGG on their centennial anniversary! Don’t forget to pay a visit this coming Monday for the start of their Eco 100 Greatest Moments! The trip down memory lane will end on Earth Day, April 22nd.
