GoSili to-go cups and straws are the alternative to excessive plastics cups and straws constantly being produced and thrown out. Before the "take-and-toss" culture came to be, tableware items were made from natural and durable materials such as glass, ceramic and steel. These items are made to endure endless use, multiple washes and extreme temperatures. In the last 50+ years the trend has switched towards using plastics which contain toxic chemicals and break down quickly and easily. They are not made to last and therefore must be thrown out relatively quick. Waste from disposables is exponentially higher as our culture has embraced on-the-go conveniences. So why silicone? Our mission is to provide a safe, durable alternative to plastic. Silicone is non-toxic, dishwasher and microwave safe and can withstand the extreme temperatures that we put these items through. It has all the qualities of superior performance and durability. Food and beverages should be consumed out of materials that are durable, natural and safe. They should not have to be disposed of after a few uses or just one! GoSili focuses on creating silicone products that have high-end design at affordable prices competing directly with plastic. We are dedicated to building our business around a social movement. By educating and leading people away from plastic disposables, we will also provide them with a sustainable, silicone alternative.
