Why is Our Innovative Universal Silicone Lid Transforming The Way You Sip?

Why is Our Innovative Universal Silicone Lid Transforming The Way You Sip?

Imagine having the power to turn any cup, anywhere, at any time, into a straw cup? At Gosili, we’re giving you that superpower with our universal stretchy lid— one of our most innovative products. And it’s going to revolutionize the way you sip. 

In this blog, you’ll learn everything about our one-of-a-kind Universal Stretchy Lids— the only lid worth raving about. 

What is a Stretchy Lid? 

Hold on to your cups… because our Stretchy Lid is changing the way you sip. Made from 100% platinum silicone, our Universal Silicone Lid is a straw lid that fits virtually any cup. From your soda at a fast-food restaurant to your wine glass at home, our one-size-fits-all Stretchy Lid has you and your drink covered.

The high-quality silicone is made to last for years to come. It’s soft, non-toxic, and eco-friendly. Plus, it comes with a travel tin so you’re ready to sip— anywhere, anytime.  

...And How Does it Work?  

Easy peasy. Grab any cup, pour your drink in it and grab your Stretchy Silicone Lid. Stretch it and place it over your cup. The suction keeps your Stretchy Lid in place while protecting your drink from spills. Then, insert your favorite reusable silicone straw and TADA— an on-the-go lid for all your drinking needs. 

It’s easy to use, easy to clean (dishwasher safe!), and easy to love. 

Universal, Reusable Silicone Lid… The One Thing You Didn’t Know You Need! 

Are we hyping up our lid? Maybe— but for a good reason! Our Universal Stretchy Lids are made to last. But they’re also made to reduce the amounts of waste damaging our oceans and waterways. Simply carrying this in your purse, bag or vehicle and using it instead of single-use lids & straws has a huge impact on cutting down plastic waste. 

Plastic-free oceans and clean communities are the main reasons to carry your own cup, lid, and straw. But those aren’t the only reasons why you’re going to love our Stretchy Lids. These are some of the other reasons why:

1. Say Goodbye to Messy Cabinets and Mismatched Lids

Four different cups in varying sizes and materials stand next to each other. Each one has a silicone lid and straw on it.

You know the struggle… your cabinets are loaded with odd-sized jars and glasses… but the lids are either lost or you need to try 7 different ones before you find one that fits. Annoying. Now, imagine if you had a single lid that perfectly fits all your cups. No more looking, no more fitting. Grab, stretch, and go.

That’s how easy it is!

Forget about overstuffed cabinets and drawers full of mismatched lids. Simply keep your stretchy lid nearby and you’re covered (and so is your drink!). 

“I love the versatility of this product. I have used it on wide mouth and narrow mouth mason jars, coffee mugs, insulated tumblers, and water bottles and haven't had a spill since!” - Satisfied Stretchy Lid Customer

2. Sippin’ While Driving? Make it Spill-Proof!

If you’ve been a victim of out-of-sight bumps that spill your drink while driving… you’re going to LOVE our Universal Lid. Grab your favorite mug or cup and brew yourself a delicious cup of coffee or tea. The difference? Instead of letting fate decide if you’re spilling in the car— get your Stretchy Lid out!

The suction created when you put it on a cup creates a spill-free experience. Plus, the carefully crafted straw hole is also made to keep your drink in the glass. From minor shaking to sudden stops— your drink is safe with a Stretchy Silicone Lid.

You can also use it when getting a drink at a coffee shop! Skip the plastic lid and straw and use your Stretchy Silicone Lid instead. Don't forget to ask the barista for no lid and straw. 

3. No More Bugs Taking a Swim in Your Drink

At the beach or camping, at a restaurant or hanging out by the pool— it doesn’t matter where you are… bugs always find a way to sneak into your drink. But not anymore. Our Stretchy Lids are perfect for keeping your drink away from sand, bugs, dirt, or anything else that might want a taste.

But don’t take our word for it… this is what a happy customer said:

“I primarily got them to put over our drinks outside of the pool so flies don't come around. They fit canned drinks absolutely perfectly and still allow for any straw to be poked in. If the drink tips it's not automatically going to dump all of the drink out since the straw hole is a+ and not just a hole.” - Clair, happy GoSili customer 

Keeping your drink protected is that easy. 

4. Ideal for the Independent Kids Who Want to Drink From a “Big Kid Cup”

Our Stretchy Lids are ideal for kids learning how to drink from open cups. Spills are inevitably going to happen, right? Not with our Stretchy Lids! Use them at restaurants or at home so your kids can drink from a “big kid” glass without spilling. It’s easy to use and the perfect way to give your kids a little independence and self-confidence. 

Sustainability + Efficiency— All in a Single Multipurpose Lid 

Reducing the enormous amount of waste going into our oceans every year is one of the biggest driving forces at GoSili. Our Stretchy Lids are meant to keep your drink safe from bugs and spills... but also to keep our oceans and rivers safe from plastic pollution. 

Our main goal is to give you better + long-lasting everyday products to replace the short-lived, disposable plastic ones. This way, you shift away from the all-things-disposable way of living and into a more sustainable lifestyle.
