Why is my Lydy leaking?

Are you experiencing leaking with your Lydy? We understand how frustrating that can be, but don't worry! There are a few reasons why this might be happening:

  1. Make sure that your Lydy is completely dry before use. Any moisture can hinder its ability to seal efficiently.
  2. If your barista initially uses a plastic lid before switching to your Lydy, it can affect the seal. Any moisture on the rim can cause liquid to seep into the rings and pool with your drink.
  3. Ensure that the cup you're using is the right size for your Lydy. Our lids are designed to fit cups with diameters of 80mm or 90mm, so using a cup that is too large or small can result in imperfect sealing.

If you've tried these solutions and are still experiencing issues, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always here to help!

Does Lydy fit on all size cups?

At Lydy, we understand how important it is for our customers to have the perfect fit for their cups. That's why we want to clarify that Lydy is designed to fit cups with diameters of either 80mm or 89-90mm. This generally includes standard takeaway cups in sizes such as 6oz, 8oz, 12oz, and 16oz, as well as glass and ceramic mugs.

However, we want to be transparent about some exceptions to this rule. Lydy is not designed to fit on Keepcups or large take-away cups branded with Allpress and some other branded take-away cups. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we believe in honesty and accuracy when it comes to our product's capabilities.

We do however have a hack. Click here to view.

If you have any further questions about Lydy's sizing or compatibility, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always here to help!

Not all take-away cups are standard so here is a list of branded cups that we know don't fit Lydy:
-Vittoria Coffee
-Some McDonalds depending on your location
-All press large cups
-Seven Miles
-7 Eleven

Your website says Lydy is splash proof, what does that mean?

At Lydy, we designed our rotating spout cover to prevent splashing, but it's important to note that Lydy is not completely leak-proof. While the spout cover does an excellent job of minimizing splashing, it's possible for liquid to leak out if the cup is tilted or turned upside down.

It's important to remember that Lydy is intended to replace a standard lid that fits on your take-away cup. Our design provides a more sustainable option to reduce the amount of single-use plastic waste that ends up in our environment.

If you have any further questions or concerns about Lydy's features, please feel free to contact us. We're happy to provide more information to help you make an informed decision about your purchase.

What is wrong with using the plastic lid on take-away cups?

Plastic lids are made from #6, which is polystyrene (PS) or styrofoam.
#6 is difficult to recycle and often lands up in landfill and or our oceans.
#6 is fragile as it breaks down easily. The easy deterioration of this plastic causes tiny pieces to land up on our beaches and oceans called microplastics.
These microplastics then land up being consumed by our marine life.
When heated, #6 can release toxic materials such as styrene, which can be absorbed in the digestive tract. This can cause health concerns when exposed to high volumes on a regular basis.

How long should Lydy last?

Lydy can last a long time with proper care. Keep away from fire and sharp objects. Lydy is dishwasher safe, but we recommend handwashing with soapy water. If you experience any issues with your Lydy, please contact us to discuss further. And as a general rule, please stop using Lydy at the first sign of damage.

What is Lydy made from?

Lydy is made from high-quality, 100% food grade silicone and RPET (recycled plastic). Unlike traditional plastic lids, which are made from non-renewable resources and can be harmful to the environment, silicone is a non-toxic, eco-friendly material that is made from sand. If you have any further questions about Lydy's materials or production process, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Where is Lydy made?

Lydy was born in Sydney and made overseas.
We tried our very best to find manufacturers in Australia but couldn't find anyone that could source the silicone within a short period. At the time there was a shortage of silicone to Australia.

What happens at the end of Lydy's lifecycle?

At the end of Lydy's lifecycle, the silicone and RPET materials used in its construction can be recycled. One option for recycling is through the company Terracycle, which accepts these materials for processing. Lydy is made from high-quality, 100% food grade silicone and RPET (recycled plastic). Unlike traditional plastic lids, which are made from non-renewable resources and can be harmful to the environment, silicone is a non-toxic, eco-friendly material that is made from sand.
