About this project

 

 

 

The first ALL-SILICONE to-go coffee cup that:

  • the lip doesn't squish (because of it's patent pending inner steel ring and structure)
  • microwave safe
  • dishwasher safe

We want to change the "take and toss" culture... slow it down, and ultimately prevent all the excess waste.

 

Billions of paper and plastic disposable cups end up in landfills each year. Even most paper cups which you'd think are recyclable AREN'T because of the plastic/wax inner coating.

There is so much waste that ends up in the oceans as well. The area known as The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is one of five major garbage patches drifting in the oceans. These areas of garbage are huge! Miles wide and miles deep with plastics being one of the most common pollutants of ocean waters worldwide.

This kind of excessive waste isn't sustainable. The dumps are overflowing and the recycling centers can't keep up. We have to use things that last,  temporary is not an option.

 


A reusable to-go cup that is cool, functional and built to last.

SILICONE is made up of:

  • silicon - a natural element abundant on Earth
  • hydrogen
  • carbon
  • oxygen

And because our cup is 100% SILICONE it's:

  • non toxic & safe
  • doesn't break down easily or leach like plastic
  • microwave & dishwasher safe
  • resistant to extreme temperatures (you can boil it!)
  • endlessly reusable so no more waste

 

 

But in order for this cup to be functional

we had to come up with a way to make it rigid to hold that coffee. We never use plastic in the products we make so the solution was our patent pending stainless steel ring which creates our super strong silicone cup.

 

 

 

It functions like all the reusables out there, and it's performance is superior because the GoSili® Cup can:

 

 

The GoSili® Cup is cool, durable, safe and ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

The concept for the all silicone cup started with a small version for kids. Once we perfected the rigid lip that wouldn't collapse when squeezed (not a good idea for kids) people said right away "I want one for my coffee!" And here it is!

 

 

So many colors to chose from! Our backers will help in this process by picking their top color choices from a survey at the end of the campaign. The greater the success, the more colors will be unlocked.

Risks and challenges

Managing inventory with multiple color options can be challenging for sure. We will do our best to provide as many color choices as possible, but may have to limit some due to minimum volume requirements from our factory. Luckily we have experience with this and know what to be aware of. We will keep our backers well informed and have set our timeline based on fully understanding the production process.
