Silicone

What Is Silicone?

Silicone is made using abundant natural resources, silica (sand), and carbon. Silicone is lightweight, pliable, and easy to use, clean and store. We use Platinum Silicone for all our Food Storage Products. Platinum Silicone is BPA Free and does not have latex, BPS, lead, or phosphates. Ecoberi Bags are non-toxic.

Is Silicone Safe to Use?

All Ecoberi containers are safe to use. They are made from premium food grade platinum silicone, are BPA free, non-toxic, and do not contain any chemicals, glues, or adhesives. Our containers are eco-friendly, highly temperature resistant, durable, and easy to clean.

How do you wash Silicone?

Your silicone items can be hand washed with warm soapy water or placed in the dishwasher. For bags and popsicle molds, turn upside down and if needed between 2 plates to keep them upright.

Silicone oven mitts and potholders can be wiped off with soap and water or tossed in the washing machine.

Does Silicone take on Smells?

Silicone is nonporous and generally resists odors, but certain strong smells like onions and garlic may leave a slight residual odor. However, you can easily remove these odors by washing the silicone item promptly with soap and water. For particularly strong odors, you can try soaking it overnight in a solution of baking soda and water or lemon and water to eliminate the smell.

What are the Benefits of Silicone?
  • Lightweight and Space-saving: Silicone products are lightweight and occupy less space compared to glass alternatives. 

  • Easy to Transport: Their flexibility and compactness make them easy to carry and transport without the risk of breakage.

  • Drop Resistance: Unlike glass, silicone does not shatter or break when dropped, ensuring safety and durability.

  • Safe: Food grade silicone is non-toxic, BPA-free, and doesn't leach harmful substances into food or drinks.

  • Durable: Resistant to cracking, breaking, and degradation over time.

  • Versatile: Withstands extreme temperatures, suitable for freezer, microwave, oven, and
    dishwasher.

  • Environmentally friendly: Reduces plastic waste and is a sustainable, reusable alternative to single-use plastic.
Is Silicone Better for the Environment?

Yes, silicone is better for the environment compared to single-use plastics. Single-use plastics contribute to pollution, with a significant portion ending up in the ocean. Up to 91% of ocean plastic pollution originates from land. Marine animals and sea creatures are harmed and killed due to discarded plastic bags, as they often mistake them for food. By choosing silicone products, which are reusable and long lasting, you help reduce the demand for single-use plastics and minimize their negative impact on the environment and marine life.

What is PEVA?

PEVA food storage bags are generally considered safe for storing food. They are made from polyethylene vinyl acetate (PEVA), which is a non-toxic plastic that does not contain chlorine or other harmful chemicals.

Our PEVA material is 100% food grade PEVA, free of BPA, phthalates, and heavy metals.

To ensure maximum safety when using PEVA food storage bags, it's important to follow guidelines such as not microwaving food in the bags, as this can cause the plastic to break down and release harmful chemicals.

PEVA food storage bags offer a safe and convenient solution for storing food. These bags provide a reusable option that can help reduce the consumption of single-use plastics. PEVA bags can be recycled, making them an environmentally friendly choice for food storage. By opting for PEVA bags, you contribute to minimizing plastic waste and promoting sustainability.

Collapsible Food Storage Container Questions

Why does the container collapse when I put the lid on?

The containers are made to collapse for space saving benefits. Any pressure from the top will encourage it to collapse. The snap top may require a bit of relearning. Unlike glass where you can lean on the top to close, these containers need to close from the side.

Why is challenging to align the lid?

The base of the container has grooves on top to allow for the silicone seal in the lid. Occasionally the seal gets lose, use your finger to secure seal back in and try aligning again to close.
