Reusable & Recyclable
FDA & LFGB Approved
"The most practical collapsible cup I’ve ever used! The quality is great, it collapses and expands easily when needed and the tab stays in place when moved to the side, so it doesn’t get in my face when I’m drinking but I also don’t have to rotate it all the way. I love that the sleeve is already attached to the cup so there’s a lot less fiddling around when going from fully compact to fully ready. This is definitely going to be a new addition to my #SaveTheTurtles initiative!"

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! The NIMAL cup has a firm polypropylene sleeve which protects your hands along with securing the cup in a strong position allowing it to be reliable.
No. The NIMAL cup has an airtight seal once the lid is closed properly.
We recommend rinsing your NIMAL cup before your first use, and washing regularly to keep it in tip top condition. To clean, squeeze the silicone cup into a “C” shape to separate the collar as well as the heat sleeve, and unscrew the lid. You can wash your NIMAL Cup by hand with warm water and mild soap, or place it on the top rack of your dishwasher.
Since NIMAL cups are made of platinum food grade silicone, it is normal to have a natural silicone smell before your first use. Some strong-smelling foods and drinks may also leave residual fragrance or taste on your NIMAL cup.
Here are some simple ways to remove any lingering aromas or tastes:
1. Place your silicone cup in boiling water to sterilize and remove strong odors (NOTE: Please remove all plastic components; lid, collar and heat sleeve before boiling your NIMAL cup).
2. Submerge the cup in a mixture of hot water and white vinegar using the ratio of one cup vinegar for every two cups of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes, then scrub gently with a cleaning sponge.
3. Coat your NIMAL cup with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda using the ratio of one tablespoon of white vinegar to two tablespoons of baking soda. Allow the coated cup to sit overnight. Rinse with water to completely remove the mixture and dry thoroughly.
Once the lid and mouth tab are properly sealed, it should be leak-proof. Please make sure you have assembled your cup properly. Note: Do not squish the cup from the silicone when it’s filled with fluid.
NIMAL cups are made of LFGB certified platinum food grade silicone & FDA grade polypropylene, or #5 recyclable plastic. We believe our customers deserve the best quality materials, and transparency into our production standards. Note: LFGB is the German food safety standard, which has safer and higher standards than the US’ FDA standards. Our cups are free of BPAs, BPSs, phthalates, lead, and adhesives.
All NIMAL cups are manufactured responsibly in China. Our manufacturing operations meet acceptable standards for quality, safety, fair labor, ethical business practices, and environmental responsibility. Our manufacturing and sourcing partners maintain certifications for Quality Management System (ISO 9001) and Environmental Management System (ISO 14001) standards.
Squeeze the silicone cup into a “C” shape to fit it into the collar, and make sure the edge of the cup lines up evenly above the collar. Then, screw on the lid and slip on the heat sleeve.
Basically, anything that fits. Some of our favorite beverages are coffee, smoothies, and tea, but our cups have also been used for fruit, soup, chips, and more. Go nuts!
While NIMAL cups are leak-proof, we can’t guarantee that the other items in your bag won’t squish your NIMAL cups and cause it to explode. So, we recommend against this.
The silicone cup of the NIMAL cup is microwave-safe, but we strongly suggest removing all plastic components (lid, collar, and heat sleeve) before microwaving.
The heat sleeve, lid, and collar are all made of #5 recyclable plastic. The silicone cup, tab, and straw, however, would need to be recycled through a local municipal recycling program, like ECO USA. We recommend reaching out to your community to find out the best way to recycle these.

I recently tried a Nimal cup and loved it! The fact that it is collapsible and has a clip makes it extra convenient to carry around even in a small bag. Would definitely recommend do anyone looking to save single use plastic cups from landfill.
NIMAL had thought this cup through very well!! This cup allows coffee and tea lovers to enjoy their daily fix with ease and helps us reduce our contribution to waste. I love the versatility it allows with the transformative size options and ease of carrying this up as it can be reduced small enough to fit into my purse! I tend to live a very busy lifestyle and I use my dishwasher quite frequently and it’s so nice to know that NIMAL has designed this cup to be dishwasher safe. I am also a business owner and paired with 1% for the planet and can truly respect that NIMAL has taking that step further to contribute to other environmental initiatives to further their impact! Truly great product and did I mention how sleek the all black is!? I love it!!
It is so adorable, even cuter in person than online. I love the colour that I received, and I know I would have loved any of the other colours as well. The cup itself is a little flimsy when filled with liquid, I understand this is due to the compact nature of the design, so I would encourage others to be careful if you have a hot drink! I’d recommend keeping it in your hand more often than placing it down. The size and lid are both convenient, very easy to transport and use in public. Especially convenient for tucking away when it’s empty. Most importantly, this company’s values are in the right place. I really appreciate the minimal packaging and zero waste approach, these values are very clear in the design and approach.
This cup is really great, especially for traveling! It’s lightweight, easy to fold up, and comes with a carabiner attached. That way you can attach it to your backpack or jean loops when it’s empty. The cup also has a great seal - I turned it upside down and it did not leak. The design is also super cute on top of being functional. I definitely recommend this cup for drinks on the go!
The perfect lightweight take anywhere collapsible cup. Perfect for hot and cold. I have been loving being able to clip it onto my handbag for whenever I fancy a coffee or a cold drink. In QLD it gets HOT and this is just perfect to have on hand. Stylish colours and versatile sizes make this the must have accessory. I love knowing I am helping the environment and making a better decision by not adding to our plastic waste problems. Thanks again for my Nimal Cup - I really do love it.
