Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why is Silicone better than plastic?
A. Silicone is durable, and more ocean-friendly than plastic. It lasts longer, and stands up better against heat and cold than plastics. When burned, silicone reverts back into its harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor (unlike plastic which releases toxins when burned).
Silicone is more environmentally friendly than plastic in kitchen applications as plastic is not as long lasting as silicone is more inert than plastic, which means it has a lower chance of leaking chemicals into food when used for food storage.
