Green Eco Kupp' Review by Leslie Talley

The Kupp’

The Eco Kupp’ is a kid friendly drinking glass designed by a mom. There are five bold colors to choose from and each color represents something from nature. The colors are red for warmth, orange for sun, green for earth, blue for water and violet for spring. Each six-ounce glass is made of soda-lime and is lead and cadmium free. Included with the glass is a medical and food grade BPA and BPS free silicone sleeve from an ISO certified manufacturer. The cups are dishwasher safe which is always a plus in a house with children. The handle of the cup is flexible and soft making it easy for little hands to grasp and use. The Eco Kupp’ is best for kids three years old and up. The price for each cup is $16.99 but you get a 10% discount if you order four.

My children, from the pre-teen down to the toddler, often fight over who gets to use the Kupp’ during mealtimes. Our two-year-old has been using the cup with ease. I like that there are multiple color options so that you can assign a color to a child and give them responsibility for their own glass. The base of the glass is sturdy and strong. The silicone cover is fairly easy to remove when or if needed.

After a cycle through the dishwasher the Kupp’ often comes out with residue trapped between the glass and the silicone sleeve. Since the cover is somewhat easy to remove this can be remedied however it is a step that we would rather do without. My other concern with the Kupp’ is the lack of protection around the top rim of the glass. I was a little disappointed when I saw the cup because to me it appeared that it would be easy to break. I was happy to see that the rim does seem thick and since a glass has yet to meet our tile floors I do not know yet if they break easily.

All in all, I like these little cups. I like that they are colorful and eco-friendly. I like that although they are intended for preschool age and up my two-year-old is able to use it easily which is helping her learn how to drink properly from a normal type of glass. I would recommend these glasses and would happily purchase them as gifts for friends and family and to fill our own cupboards like our children have filled our home.
