Hydrate Responsibly. Really Responsibly.

Next in our series on medically and environmentally responsible hydration: The 16oz and 8z GoSili Cups from SiliKids.

What is it?

A cup/mug made from 100% silicone, with reinforced stainless steel ring embedded in the rim to hold it’s shape. At Optimal Health Center, the 16oz mug comes with the coffee lid and the 8oz cup comes with the SiliSkin sippy cover.

Why this vessel?

Silicone

It’s a great alternative to the other reusable vessels we often see. No plastic means no BPA/BPB. It’s dishwasher, microwave, and freezer safe. Silicone can even be boiled to sterilize (for the super sensitive among us). Leave it in the cupholder of your car on a Palm Springs summer day without worrying the heat will leech plasticizers or other toxins into your drink.

Silicone is a natural insulator. So hot beverages stay warmer longer and cold beverages stay cooler longer. The wide mouth allows any style of beverage – water, smoothies straight from your blender, coffee, tea, or your favorite juice.

The SiliSkin sippy cover that comes with the kids’ cup can be used on the original cup, the mug, or any other reasonable jar or bottle – allowing you to repurpose those mason jars and apple sauce bottles instead of sending them to the landfill.

These cups can be used over and over again – replacing paper and plastic options and reducing pollution. Step up your non-toxic hydration game.

Side benefit for those of us who love our hot beverages hot, but still want to sip and savor… you can relax and pop your GoSili mug in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat your coffee or tea without worrying you’ll decompose the mug into your beverage.
