So what is silicone?
Silicone is the second most abundant element on earth and is made from sand and carbon and does not degrade over time making it endlessly reusable!
Why does GoSili use European grade silicone vs. FDA?
GoSili uses European grade silicone, also known as LFGB silicone. Unlike other grades of silicone, LFGB silicone is held to the highest of standards, is platinum cured and is free of toxins.
How does silicone compare to plastic?
Plastics contain harsh chemicals that can leach toxic materials into foods and drinks. Silicone is non-toxic, eco-friendly and is virtually indestructible so it can be used over and over again. Need we say more? Silicone is also resistant to extreme temperatures so you can safely use your GoSili reusable silicone products in the dishwasher, microwave, freezer, with hot drinks, with cold drinks and you can even boil it to sterilize! No need to worry about melting, breaking, or warping like plastics.
Why should I stop using single-use plastics?
Single-use plastics are taking over our landfills and filling up our oceans. Every day, 500 million plastic straws are thrown away in the US and 100 billion disposable cups go to the land fills each year. This kind of waste is just not sustainable. It is time to waste less, and go sili.
Why is silicone better than other plastic alternatives?
Think of it this way. Do you want to drink out of a paper straw that melts faster than you can drink? No. Do you want to drink out of a reusable stainless-steel straw that can chip your tooth? No. Do you want to drink out of a reusable glass straw that can break in your mouth? No. Do you want to drink out of a reusable GoSili Silicone Straw that is soft and flexible? Why, yes, yes you do.
Can I recycle my GoSili products?
One of the many reasons we love silicone is because it is pretty much indestructible. However, if the time comes to say, refresh your silicone stash, silicone can be recycled. Not all recycling centers are setup to recycle silicone, so if your local recycling center does not, we will take care of it for you!
