Is silicone plastic?
NO way dude. It is a type of rubber (a polymer) that is free of toxic chemicals and is built to last, withstand extreme temperatures, endlessly reusable, soft and pliable and is inert.
Why is silicone better than plastic?
Silicone is durable, and more ocean-friendly than plastic. It lasts longer and stands up better against heat and cold than plastics. Because it’s completely inert and safe to heat to super high temperatures, it’s safe to use for both cold and hot drinks. It’s also safer for your family, too, with no toxic chemicals like BPA to worry about. All GoSili items are 100% silicone. It is stain-resistant, hypoallergenic, and has no open pores to harbor harmful bacteria. The company is dedicated to building a social movement away from toxic and unsustainable plastic wares by providing the alternative to them. With the excessive amount of plastics linked to negative health and environmental issues, GoSili is creating a cultural shift away from the overuse of these “throw away” plastics.
How long will liquids stay hot or cold in the cups?
Usually up to 2 hours, but since the cups are microwave safe, you can pop it in the microwave for a quick reheat!
How are the cups microwave safe with the stainless-steel ring embedded around the top of cup?
GoSili cups are completely safe to use in the microwave. Because the metal is circular the electrons within the metal continue to move within a circular motion, rather than building up on a sharp edge such as a fork which would cause sparks and damage in your microwave.
Where’s the opening on the spout of my universal sippy top?
By the nature of silicone many scores and slits in the material seem as though they are not there. However, if you pull on the sides of the sippy spout, you will notice that the opening will appear. Sometimes upon first use you might need to pull on the sides to start the opening. Once this is done the spout will work great!
