Why PortaVia over plastic lids?
Not only are Polystyrene lids non-biodegradable, they also release harmful toxins into your beverages!
“These lids can leach toxic BPA up to 50x faster when the beverage is heated up.” (1)
“Research has linked exposure to fertility problems, male impotence, heart disease and other conditions.” (2)
PortaVia is a healthy choice!
Up to 45% of Canadians and Americans are consuming poison every time they choose a plastic lid. PortaVia is created with FDA approved food grade silicone meaning it does not leach harmful chemicals or alter the taste of your drink.
You’ll never have to buy another travel mug again!
Use PortaVia with almost any mug or cup, any beverage, anywhere you go!
Most cafes and restaurants
offer a discount when you bring your own cup.
picnicking – commuting – hot tubbing – roadtripping
So... how does it work?
Most of the mugs and cups in the world have universally standardized openings.
Unlike every other lid, PortaVia is designed to fit inside your cup rather than over top, ensuring a reliable seal and a truly universal lid.
Reduce Negative Environmental Impact
Businesses will buy fewer to-go cups, and local governments will save on garbage collection and landfill costs by collecting less disposable waste.
We buy about 1,000,000 plastic bottles per minute. Only about 23% of those plastic bottles are ever recycled within the U.S. (3)
It’s on us to make a change, but where to start?
Start with what you have—use your own mug!
Fact: You’re more likely to enjoy and take care of an object that you have an emotional connection to. This means, bringing your favourite mug is not only more enjoyable but it’s also more sustainable!

What PortaVia does not fit:
PortaVia does not work on all container sizes of course. Cups with a very sharp draft angle or no angle at all will not engage the seals properly. The seals are designed for a conical taper, similar to that of a paper cup, and works best on standardized mug and cup sizes.
