Why Silicone?

Environmentally Friendly-

Silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica, which is derived from sand. It doesn't involve mining for crude oil, which is what most plastics are made from.

Silicone is also preferable to plastic because it doesn't contain the harmful chemicals like phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA) - no nasties!

Lastly, silicone is recyclable and doesn't break down into micro-plastics, which makes it ocean-friendly and less harmful than plastic. Basically, it reverts back into its harmless ingredients.


Aside from the environmental advantages, you can't ignore the obvious fact that silicone is more aesthetically pleasing compared to harsh plastic. The soft, flexible texture is no comparison to the hard, stiff alternative materials. 



Silicone is more durable than plastic as it stands up better against heat and cold. This is great as it means it doesn't need to be replaced as often and generates less waste than plastic products.
