need bpa free, safe (hopefully green) sippys

Any recommendations for sippy cups out there that are BPA free, durable of course, and hopefully a good green option?

I love my kleen kanteen water bottle and was contemplating the sippy, but I don't like that the SS dents so easily.

Have you considered the SIGG bottles? They're aluminum not SS, I've never used one so I don't know how much they'd dent.

I hadn't considered Siggs because I've read that the aluminum dents just like the SS, and I would rather have SS than aluminum. So I guess I'm looking for a good plastic cup recommendation since I'm not sure what else there would be besides SS, plastic and glass....and glass bottles are one thing, but not sippys they are carrying.

I am OCD and when I take an interest in something I have a nearly uncontrollable urge to search until I find an answer. I know, crazy.

But ... I found a few possibilities: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

And Born Free makes a sippy that can be found by searching Amazon. Hope you don't mind my searching, you have me interested. Obviously I haven't tested any of these though.

I love my SIGG bottles. They are my favorite. We use Foogo, Kleen Kanteen and SIGG here.

The Safe Sippy. The slip grip prevents denting while helping your little one hold onto cup.

Crocodile Creek SS sippy. Been using one for several weeks on a daily basis, not one dent-I LOVE this sippy! And my LO loves to carry and drop his sippy. The spout doesn't have any parts to come undone, doesn't condense like Kleen Kanteens. These are lead/phthalate/BPA free, made of #304 food grade SS. Ebay has lots more choices listed for prints.

Foogo. Just got one in the mail. LIking this one too. Easy to clean. Just feels very durable vs. other sippy's I've used.

Here's a blog I stumbled across w/reviews on some other cups

Scroll through some of the comments on the bottom; lots of other good info about sippys.


Here's the link for the soft landing sippy sampler

we use the plastic nuby sippies- they are BPA free here in canada. I like that they have soft spouts.

I love Nalgene sippy cups. Durable, don't leak and not expensive.

these are the ones we're using too. Not sure how "green" they are, but they are BPA free, and come in a variety of sizes and with or without the handles.
