There’s a lot to like with new glasses and glass baby bottles from Siliskins. The name derives from the silicon sleeve around every glass.
We’ve been trying to eliminate all plastic from the house. Even when that’s not possible, we’ve quit throwing plastic containers in the dishwasher because of fears of what heat does to release more of the plastic into food and drink. You don’t have to scrub that many plastic containers before you’re motivated to find glass replacements for “necessities” like Tupperware and plastic sandwich boxes.
Of course, around pools or with little kids, plastic is a God-send, since it doesn’t shatter like glass, but what if the risks of eating off plastics are worse than a cut from a piece of glass? Products like SIliskins can take the place of glass in all but the roughest households, since a shattered glass really isn’t possible when 95% plus of the glass surface is in a silicon sheath.
These Siliskins glasses also comes in fun colors with peek-a-boo cut-outs and seem perfect for kids around the pool or family dinner table. They are available in 6 oz, 11 oz, and 12 oz sizes, and retail for $26 for four of the small and $30 for the larger glasses. The silicon is 100% food grade, and is boilable and dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Silicon is a naturally occurring element that is found throughout the universe. It is the eighth most common element and makes up 25% of the earth’s crust.
Siliskins also makes baby bottles.
