Our story

Libby Versace, was motivated to create a range of stainless steel cups after learning the health concerns over bisphenol-A (BPA), a synthetic chemical widely used in the manufacturing of plastic cups and drink bottles.

Libby said, “When I heard about possible health effects from using plastic drinkware, I sought out alternatives for my kids and recalled the anodized aluminium cups of my own childhood which are no longer manufactured”.

Libby was then inspired to create her own range of products which utilise retro design and the safety of stainless steel. “Our cups are the first in the world to use non-toxic paint and illustration. I wanted the safety and durability of stainless steel but also wanted a product that was fun for everyone”.

ecococoon was launched in July 2009. Libby’s original goal was to produce a stainless steel bottle like no other. “I was tired of buying pretty bottles that leaked and fell short on performance. I wanted a bottle that did not sit in the cupboard with the dozens of others I had tried. My aim was to have a bottle that did not require twisting with fingers to open or close, pulling on teeth, germ laden straws and a bottle that kept water cold all day. The most important feature was to have a leak free bottle when placed in school bags, handbags, lounges etc. “

After 2 very long years of determination, patience and design, “the cocoon” was launched in October 2011. “It was worth the energy and time that my team dedicated to ensuring we had a superior quality and high performance bottle. We achieved all of the desired features and are really proud of our cocoon bottles.”
