Are Kappi Gold Stainless Steel Straws dishwasher safe?
Definitely. We have torture tested these straws to ensure they are as durable as possible. With a quick polish they look as good as new, regardless of whether they've been endlessly put through the dishwasher or have been rolling around in the cutlery drawer.
Are Reusable Metal Straws safe for children?
Of course they are. They can be used just like a normal straw - except be mindful of advising children against chewing the straws when using for the first time. Check out our Instagram for a heap of happy kids using our reusable stainless steel straws.
Where is the bamboo used in your products sourced from?
Our bamboo is sourced from plantations in China that adhere to sustainable farming practices. We've ensured that our bamboo is not sourced from areas that have destroyed natural forests in order to harvest bamboo. Since our bamboo is sourced from managed plantations, we have ensured that we are not competing with animals that rely on bamboo as a food source. Don't worry, no pandas were harmed in the making of your toothbrush!
Why use reusable silicone ziplock bags?
Conventional ziplock bags are essentially just thick plastic bags with a clever closing mechanisms. Many are not food-grade and contain a host of nasty phthalates which can potentially leach into your food. Moreover, ziplock bags degrade over time meaning they enter landfill after only a limited number of uses. Kappi reusable ziplock bags are made from food-grade, inert silicone and can be used indefinitely without worrying about toxic chemicals entering your food. The sealing slider bar is also super easy to use making them ideal snack bags for your little one.
