I’ll admit, it took a while for the ZippyCap to grow on me, but after a bit of perusing, I’m convinced it’s a pretty ingenious idea. Imagine being able to reuse any plastic bottle infinitely. Imagine never needing to touch your mouth to a bottle-opening ever. Imagine always having a straw on you no matter where you go. The ZippyCap has a pretty nifty way of catering to all three needs. It’s good for your mouth because it allows you to drink water without touching your mouth to the bottle or spilling water as you maneuver the bottle in mid-air… and it’s good for the environment because it lets you turn any plastic bottle into a sipper-bottle, by making sure you have a reusable straw on you at all times.
The ZippyCap turns the reusable straw into EDC in a way that’s never been done before. The straw comes tethered to a universal bottle-cap with your average 28mm threading… which means the ZippyCap fits on any sort of bottle, be it for water, seltzer, juice, or a carbonated beverage. The cap even comes with its own extendable silicone straw, that lets you sip from the bottle. Just pop the cap on, open its flap, and the straw’s mouth pops out, allowing you to sip from the bottle without touching your mouth to it, or even inclining the bottle. The reusable straw’s easier to carry than your average metal straw, and is much more useful than those crummy paper straws that melt after 5 minutes.
The entire ZippyCap apparatus fits into a plastic capsule that’s small enough to slide right around your keychain, and light enough to literally float on water. The cap itself comes with a matching base that encloses the straw into a nice package that’s easier to carry around with you than a metal straw. Open it out and the cap and straw fit on virtually any regular-mouth bottle. The twist-open cap turns your bottle into an instant spill-proof sipper, while the straw itself comes with a variable valve system, allowing you to control how much liquid flows through with each sip. You can limit the flow for carbonated or cold beverages, getting them to last for longer, or expand the flow for water or juices, allowing yourself to hydrate or quench your thirst quickly. The ZippyCaps are both designed and manufactured in USA, and along with providing jobs to American workers, the ZippyCap team even pledges a share of their revenue to 1% For The Planet… so aside from being a reusable alternative to plastic straws, each ZippyCap actually contributes to charities that help protect the earth!

ZippyCap – A Reusable Straw with a Built-in Twist Cap
The ZippyCap is a universal twist cap with a built-in “no-touch” silicone straw. Designed to turn your beverage into a travel-friendly sports bottle and avoid germs and accidental spills.
Features & Benefits
No More Germs: The self-expanding silicone straw goes from your keychain to your beverage without ever having to be touched. It also has a built-in germ-blocking shield to protect the straw tip between sips. Unlike other reusable straws that you have to touch with your germy fingers to put in your drink, and also sit in your beverage collecting all sorts of airborne viruses and germs. ZippyCap keeps your straw more germ-free than the other straws out there.
No More Spills: On the go, driving, gym, biking, hiking, boating, or just at your desk ZippyCap holds your straw securely in your beverage even if dropped from 6 feet high, without so much as a drop spilled. It’s also designed to fit most store-bought beverage bottles of all types, tall or short, flavored, carbonated, or not.
No More Plastic Waste: Stop using single-use plastic straws. ZippyCap will be made from 100% recycled plastic, right here in the U.S.A. In support of global recycling efforts, they are donating 1% of our proceeds to “The Recycling Partnership” 501c-3 charity as a business member of 1% for the Planet.
If you drop your keys in the water, it will act as a floatation device too.
How to Use
How To Store
Fits Almost Any Bottle
ZippyCap fits most standard store-bought beverage bottles of varying sizes and types. Their silicone straw bends to fit the bottom of shorter bottles without kinking.
The straw has 3 uses. The team has built in a “Dual Position Air Flow Control Valve” right on the straw that works in conjunction with our patented cap. This means you can control the FLOW of your beverage for water or carbonated drinks.
The third use is to remove the straw from the cap and place it in any cup or can of your favorite beverage.
