In 2013, we developed a new design of coffee lids that changes the game in terms of germ prevention. We have created our design with you in mind, especially now when the threat of germs is at an all time high.

Our STart

As a student, a lot of time is spent drinking coffee in cafes and restaurants focused on homework and essays. One day when I purchased my coffee, I had to add cream and sugar at the condiment counter. When I removed my lid to stir in my additions, I had nowhere to place the coffee cup lid. Over the past few years, I came across several articles regarding clinical studies on the amount of germs contracted on these counter surfaces.  I was not willing to place those germs near my mouth after they touched my lid.

The same problem applied to when I was working on an essay. My coffee was too hot to drink so I removed the lid. Once again, I had nowhere to put it and the table I was working at was not clean. I didn't want to place my lid on that dirty desk and then raise that lid to my lips.

That's when it hit me to find a solution. Why not create a clip that allows the lid to stay attached to the cup.

Clip N' Go Lids are designed with YOU in mind!

Samples taken from counter tops… at three separate (cafes) revealed a several bacteria lurking… including Enterococcus, fecal strep, E. coli, and Klebsiella...
also gastrointestinal or vaginal yeast...
If you’re touching the counter and eating your bun, or whatever you buy in a coffee shop, and drinking the coffee and touching your cup, there are portals of entry that might occur.

Our Mission

Our mission is to reduce the spread of germs and cross contamination in coffee shops and restaurants around the world. 

Studies like the one above have been done at New York University, University of Arizona, and Texas Department of State Health Services proving this is an issue, not just at these locations but all around the country. 

We are on a mission to get Clip N' Go Lids implemented at every coffee shop, cafe, and restaurant you can visit with one goal in mind, keep the germs off your drinks and keep you healthier by reducing your chances of contracting these illness causing germs.
