Silipint drinkware is unbreakable, reusable and even recyclable. Their silicone material is derived from easily accessible elements from the earth. That means if a Silipint ever ends up in a landfill incinerator the silicone will break back down into harmless substances like amorphous silica, carbon dioxide and water vapor. In addition, the environmental costs associated with Silipints are reduced because they’ll only need to be done once per item. Life is better Sili! (4)
