Even though we celebrated Earth Day a couple of days ago, it’s a Holiday that we really should be thinking about every day, right? There are so many easy ways to go green, which is what I focus on here on So Easy Being Green and today I’m continuing the list of 7 Easy Ways to Make Your Toddler Green.
We were recently sent a couple of new products from Silikids, free in exchange for a review. This new line of silicone based products are a great alternative to plastic sippy cups, drinking cups, and more. Why are plastic alternatives advantageous in the green world? Sure, plastic is mostly reusable, but glass has far less chemicals. Unfortunately, glass isn’t always the most kid friendly, which is where the silicone comes in with Silikids.
How fun are these glasses!? I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I still give Sophia a sippy cup to drink out of most of the time when we’re home. It’s silly, really. She can easily use a “big girl” glass, but I’m so worried about spills and breaking glasses. The Siliskin Glasses have been working out fabulously for us, though. Although I still have to watch for spills, the silicone sleeve puts me at ease about the glasses falling on the floor during dinner.
The silicone sleeves are also removable for easy cleaning and the both pieces – the glass and sleeve are dishwasher safe.
We also received a pair of Siliskin Tops!
These sippy tops are super fun – not only are they made out of Silikids silicone – they stretch to fit any standard size small glass, including the Siliskin Glasses. This makes the glasses into a totally safe, plastic-free sippy cup, if I need one!
As you can see in the above picture, they are absolutely leak proof! The top covers the glass completely and the silicone grips the glass, with air suction keeping it in place with no leaks. The top, just like all the other Silikids products are dishwasher safe and are able to be boiled for santizing.
In addition to the Siliskin Glasses and Siliskin Tops – Silikids offers a variety of fun, kid-friendly silicone products to turn your toddler and kiddos green, including Silibibs, Siliskin Sippy Cup, and Silimaps! You can purchase all the Silikids products on their website and you can also connect with Silikids on social media through Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.
