ZoLi products are designed in the US and manufactured in China or Taiwan. All factories are carefully screened and regularly visited to ensure that products are made in safe and responsible working conditions.

Materials selection

The handle, lid, and base are made of polypropylene while the straw is made from food-grade silicone. The weight at the end of the silicone straw is stainless steel encased in polypropylene.

The body of the Chubby Gummy is made of polypropylene and the tip is made from thermoplastic rubber.

tokiMATTIES are made from 100% non-slip food-grade silicone.

Silicone is used in several of our products because it is an inert material that is non-toxic, hygienic, durable and resistant to bacteria. Silicone is made of silicon, which is a natural element found in organic materials like sand, quartz, and rock. Silicon is then transformed into silicone when it is combined with oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. Because it is a natural material, it is free of toxic chemicals such as Bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, nitrosamine, lead and polyvinylchloride (PVC).

Absolutely. We use polypropylene because it is entirely BPA free and does not leach any harmful chemicals or toxins. It is also a material that can be recycled easily.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a widely produced chemical primarily used as an ingredient in the polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins that line most food and soft-drink cans and leaches into your food and drink. BPA is a hormone-disrupting chemical believed to cause developmental and neurological problems.You will never find BPA in any of our products.

Phthalates are commonly used as softeners or plasticizers to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC) soft and flexible. They are endocrine disruptors and believed to interfere with normal development of a fetus or child and linked to problems with the reproductive system. We will never use any phthalates in our products.

Polyvinyl chloride, also known as vinyl or PVC poses risks to both the environment and human health. PVC needs additives and stabilizers to make it useable. For example, lead is often added for strength, while plasticizers are added for flexibility. Low-level exposures are associated with decreased birth weight, learning and behavioral problems in children, suppressed immune function and disruption of hormones in the body. PVC threatens environmental and consumer health at every stage of its product life cycle, according to the Center for Health, Environment, and Justice (CHEJ). PVC is also the least recyclable plastic. We will never use any PVC in our products.

Our paint does not contain any lead or toxins. We spent a considerable amount of time reviewing and auditing multiple paints, and we carefully selected a paint that is safe and resilient for all ZoLi products.

Aluminum is really light, but it can unleash noxious substances upon warming, or when in contact with acidic food, so the bottles need to be lined with another material. Those liners (usually plastic resins or epoxy) contain dangerous chemicals such as BPA, and can get scratched. They can also alter the taste of liquids and give them a unpleasant flavor. Our stainless steel is completely safe and free of BPA and phthalates, and does not impact food flavor.

Stainless steel is a special form of steel that is resistant to tarnishing, rust and corrosion.

STASH are made of 300-denier polyester with reflective trim and decoration to be visible in low light or even at night. For more security, STASH are closed with a zipper and then with imitation leather magnetic flap.

NOMNOM are made of 300 denier polyester on the outside lined with foil on the interior.

Wash & Care

We recommend cleaning all parts thoroughly with warm to hot water and a mild detergent. We recommend hand washing for all our stainless steel products. All other ZoLi feeding products may be safely placed on the top rack of the dishwasher.

All our bags can be wiped with damp sponge or towel. STASH, & miniSTASH are also machine washable but do NOT put them into dryer!

Wash thoroughly with warm water and a mild detergent or in the top rack of dishwasher. You can also use a wipe when on-the-go! Some shadowing may occur if markers are left on too long, if it happens repeat washing may be required.

tokiMATTIES is coming with 4 non-toxic, washable, dry-erase markers (blue, yellow, red, green). If at some point they stop working, you can replace them with any washable dry-erase markers.

BOT Straw Sippy Cups are dishwasher safe; however if you wish to clean the straws separately, there are three simple methods:
1. Fill your BOT cup with warm to hot water. Close the lid and shake the cup. With a closed lid and warm / hot water inside, a natural pressure is created inside the cup so when you release the straw, the water will squirt out of the straw, flushing the straw clean.
2. Take the straw and run it under the faucet. While it is under the faucet, rub the straw up and down between your fingers, removing whatever “muck” might be there.
3. Using the ZoLi STRAW CLEANING BRUSH. Insert brush through the weighted ball end to clean the hard to reach areas.
4. Follow this link to see how you can disassemble your BOT to get a thorough clean.
5. Follow this link to see how to wash and dry your BOT properly.

1. Wash cup immediately after each use
a. Remove all parts- straw and o-ring, to thoroughly clean
b. Wash by hand in warm, soapy water or top rack of dishwasher
i. If washing by hand, use of a straw brush cleaner is recommended to scrub the inside of the straw
c. Eliminate all excess water in cup, lid and straw
i. Pinch the straw to remove any excess liquid
d. Fully dry all parts before re-assembling
i. Allow lid and parts to air dry even after pulling from dishwasher
ii. We recommend letting all parts dry separately and only assemble again prior to use
2. Use only with recommend liquids- milk, water, and non-pulp juices
a. Do not place hot liquids, carbonated beverages, formula, thick smoothies, or juices with pulp inside the BOT cup
3. Most effective way to prevent mold from forming in sippy cups is to remove all trace foods and eliminate any and all moisture after cleaning

Hot liquids, carbonated beverages, and juices with pulp are NOT recommended. You can place lukewarm beverages inside the cup, but anything warm will create a pressure so be prepared that there might be some liquid that will flow up through the straw.

BOT 2.0 is the next generation of the original BOT straw sippy cup. BOT 2.0 gives you the choice to drink two ways. You choose – use the direct connect straw and sip away (just like the original) or use the straw + disc to leverage the patented buffer chamber and enjoy your favorite warm liquids. For more details, please look at this short video.

The straws are made out of silicone and do experience wear and tear. General guidelines for replacing the straw are every two to three months, though this may vary depending on how frequently the cup is used and washed.

The original BOT is designed without a valve, which allows children to drink easily from the straw. When pressure builds up in the cup, liquid will be pushed up through the straw. This sometimes happens because the lid is over tightened. We suggest that you unscrew the top to release the pressure before using.

Leaks may occur if the lid is not placed correctly on the cup or when the silicone O-ring positioned inside the lid is loose and/or not intact. If you are missing the O-ring, email customerservice@zoli-inc.com.

If liquid isn’t coming out of your straw, you should check to see if your disk is securely tightened into the chamber.

You should avoid placing these products in the refrigerator, as it can damage their vacuum seal. There is really no need to do so anyway, since the vacuum seal on their body keeps all liquids cold for 24 hours.
