Have you heard of Silipint? I doubt it! This Oregon-based brand is revolutionizing the outdoor dishware and drinkware industry, with unbreakable silicone alternatives to plastic take-away containers and even stainless steel reusable containers. With their bowls and cups, you’re BPA-free and plastic-free while still carrying lightweight containers in your picnic basket, cooler, backpack, or festival tote.
I am all about reusable cups and containers, but let’s be honest: carting around glass containers to every park, on each hike, and on every road trip gets heavy. I’m excited to have an alternative that’s fun, colorful, practical and safe to reuse. We recently tried the Silipint Squeeze-a-Bowl in the vibrant tie-dye print, which we used on a camping trip to the coast in late spring. It’s 18 ounces, pretty deep, and was used for everything from finger foods in the car to cereal and soup at camp. It’s only $13.95 on the Silipint site.
We also tested out the Straight Up Half Pint (also in the fun print, but they do have solid coloring, too). This cup proved perfect for kids, especially as a snack container in the car on a road trip. We’ve put all sorts of liquids in it, and we don’t get a plastic-y or rubbery taste at all, which was a concern of mine before testing. The Half Pint is only $6.95, so pick up several.
In addition to the two types of Silipint we tried, these folks also make 8 and 9-ounce tumblers (think cocktail hour) and a 12-ounce tumbler. I’m eying the wine tumbler and shot glass, and they even make a dog water dish. All of the above would be perfect in an RV trailer or for tent camping trips, plus for every family picnic and summer festival. I know I’m excited to save my neck and shoulder the strain of lugging glass containers everywhere this summer season.
They can all go in a dishwasher, freezer, microwave…you name it.
