WHY USE STAINLESS STEEL DRINK PRODUCTS?
Stainless steel is an incredibly durable material, with a high resistance to corrosion which will ensure that your Ecococoon products last. This means resources are not wasted to keep making low-quality, disposable products. Refilling and reusing a bottle instead of buying bottled water is good news for the environment and your wallet!
Did you know:
1) An estimated 38 billion disposable water bottles end up in landfill each year?
2) That Australian's spend more than $500,000,000 a year on bottled water?
3) That there is 46,000 pieces of PLASTIC per square km of ocean?
ARE ECOCOCOON PRODUCTS RECYCLABLE?
Yes, all of Ecococoon's Stainless Steel products are 100% recyclable, so they can be easily recycled at the end of their useful life. Ecococoon Cups and Bottles are made up of around 50% recycled material of which approximately 50% originates from end-of-life products and about 50% comes from manufacturing processes.
HOW DO I ADJUST THE FLOW ON MY BOTTLE?
We know that the flow of liquids out of your bottle is important. Therefore, it is only recommended filling your Ecococoon water bottle to the shoulder as this will enable a small air pocket at the top of the bottle to assist with the flow.
CocoonCaps have a one way valve and you will have to suck to start the liquid flowing. Therefore, if you have to really suck on the mouthpiece to get the liquid to start flowing, then your mouthpiece is on too tight, therefore Ecococoon suggest loosening it ever so slightly.
AT WHAT AGE CAN CHILDREN START USING THE BOTTLES?
Ecococoon recommend's that all bottles equipped with their unique bottle mouthpiece (the cocooncap™), can be safely used by children from the age of 12 months. Of course, you need to check if your bottle contains fluids of the right temperature for your child. Ecococoon recommend using the screw top lid if you are wanting to store hot beverages. As with any product, it is recommended parental supervision for children aged 1-3 years of age. Ecococoon products are BPA free so they are a healthier choice as plastic drink bottles can leach harmful chemicals.
The CocoonCap™ (bottle mouthpiece) has been industrially designed and approved by a reputable medical company based in the United States. The product has been rigorously tested and is compliant to international health and safety standards, making it one of the safest bottle mouthpieces ever created. As there are no external moving parts, there is no risk of a small piece being dislodged from the mouthpiece into a child’s mouth. The 4 cross hair mould inbuilt in the soft touch mouthpiece ensures complete safety. However, Ecococoon always recommend that children are supervised by adults whilst using any of Ecococoon's products.
IS THE PAINT USED ON THE CUP OR BOTTLE SAFE FOR CHILDREN ?
All Ecococoon bottles and cups use non-toxic paints which are safe for children. They have vigorously tested and trialled a range of different paint options that did not contain harmful chemicals but were durable enough for everyday use. Occasionally, Ecococoon hear stories that someone's child has chewed on a bottle or cup and ingested some of the surface paint. Please don't worry if this occurs, as the paint is non toxic and safe. Ecococoon do, however, recommend the cups or bottles with a plain finish, for those children who love to chew!
HOW DO I CLEAN AND CARE FOR MY ECOCOCOON PRODUCTS?
Ecococoon recommend that you hand-wash all of your Ecococoon products in hot / soapy to ensure maximum longevity of your product. Rinse the product in hot water before drip drying.
Always give the mouthpiece a good shake to ensure all water is removed from the spout and rims.
Some of our products have been specifically designed and engineered to tolerate dishwashers , including the High Polished Stainless Steel cups, the Indestructible cups or Polished Stainless Steel bottle.
Any of the products that have paint or illustrations are not recommended for the dishwasher as it may scratch it.
It is not recommended putting your drink bottle in the freezer as water to ice expansion may cause the damage to your bottle.
