Questions and Answers

On this page you can find more information about our products.


AYA&IDA combines design, functionality and elegance in products that are all linked to a mission. Our purpose as a company is to relieve the planet of the excessive amount of plastic waste that fills landfills all over the world, while making a difference for the people who do not have the same opportunities as we have in Denmark. Unicef estimates that 1000 children die every day due to lack of clean water! We believe every child has the right to have access clean water, and that is how the AYA&IDA Foundation came to be; We donate 100 liters of clean water to children in vulnerable areas through Unicef every time we sell one of our products.

But a bottle with a good purpose MUST also be functional! And ours is indeed functional. It is produced with a unique thermo-technology that keeps your drinks perfectly cold or hot all day long. Your drinks will only be in contact with stainless steel, so you never have to think about anything - even if you have sour or sweet drinks in it. It has a large capacity despite its narrow design - and as a bonus, the design of the bottle makes it perfect for the cup holder.

Tap water is 900 times more environmental friendly than bottled water.

With the AYA&IDA drinking bottle we want our customers to drink in style, while they help the planet breathe better. The fact is that when we take water from our tap it only derives 0,0002 kgs of CO2. This includes everything from establishment of waterworks to lifting and transportation of water in the networks. If we instead choose to buy 1 liter of bottled water in plastic from the grocery store it derives no less than 0,18 kgs CO2. It means 900 times more CO2 than the water from the tap.

Landfills are full of water bottles. Every time you pick a reusable water bottle, you help reduce the production of bottled water and thus the landfill and recycling burden of plastic bottles.

When we see bottled water on the shelves in supermarkets, we are only looking at the tip of the iceberg. Consider for a moment, what a major process is needed to make bottled water available in stores. This process goes from the production of the plastic bottle to its filling, transport and storage, completely at its disposal, after just a few hours of actual use. Each of these steps requires large amounts of energy and therefore causes pollution.

The AYA&IDA drinking bottle is built to last forever, compensating its own production after just a few refills. Switching to your reusable drinking bottle will improve your health and put the least possible burden on the planet.


Yes! Our products are made of first class stainless steel 18/8, without harmful coatings, dyes, and chemicals, 100% free from BPA, phthalates and toxins. Made for you and your family for safe hydration.

As consumers and creators, it is important to us that our products do not compromise either ours or nature's health. Therefore, the materials in our products are carefully selected and thoroughly tested to avoid harmful chemicals. Stainless steel products are safer than plastic and aluminum as they can be filled with any type of beverage/food without leaking chemicals.

To make our high quality, long-lasting reusable products that are both durable and safe, we use 18/8 stainless steel, which is both sustainable, food-safe and non-reactive. Several drinking bottles have a different type of stainless steel inside than on the outside, and here we have chosen to run the high quality throughout.

So your drinking bottle made able to last a lifetime - and if not - it's easy to recycle.

Of course not! Our products are made of first class stainless steel 18/8.

Definitely! Unlike aluminium, we work with stainless steel!

Our products are ideal for containing and maintaining any kind of food or drinks.

Aluminum is not suitable for contact with food and drinks (especially hot and acidic) as it is highly toxic. Our products are made of high quality 18/8 stainless steel. Both the Food'ie and the drinking bottles can of course carry any type of beverage, hot or cold, acidic or carbonated, over and over again without adding any flavor to your food/drink or releasing harmful substances.

Each paint we choose to finish our bottles with is made with a durable acrylic resin-based paint, free of lead and other toxic chemicals approved for food use. Because safety comes first.

It also means that the paint can be scratched off if you drop it or scrape it against another object. Careful use of the bottle will prevent this. If it is dropped, the bottle might also get small dents, but there is nothing to worry about in terms of its safety: even if your drinking bottle has dents or scratches, it will continue to serve you well without you having to be nervous for whether any chemicals or toxins can migrate into your food or drink.

AYA&IDA's stainless steel products are manufactured in China in Zhejiang Province by certified partners who have implemented and maintained quality management system certifications, as well as being a member of BSCI in relation to their working environment, environment and safety.

We choose our partners very carefully and often visit the facilities ourselves. We have an ongoing dialogue and compliance with the industry's high standards of quality, safety, fair labor, ethical business practices and environmental responsibility.

We have entered agreements that ensure healthy, safe, fair and responsible conditions, just as social and environmental assessments are carried out on an ongoing basis - as well as material and product safety testing. We want to dispel the myth that responsibility and "made in China" are mutually exclusive and we work hard to ensure that we are accountable at every step.


Keeping your AYA&IDA products clean is easy.

Our Food'ie, CUP2GO and all our straws are dishwasher safe. Drinking bottles and Kids Straw Bottle are not dishwasher safe.

We recommend rinsing the drinking bottle with warm water after each use, especially if the bottle is used to store a liquid other than water. For deep cleaning, we suggest using warm water, mild soap and a bottle brush. If you want a more organic alternative, you can use a solution made from vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda - it is just as effective.

Once washed, allow them to dry with the cap and bottleneck down to allow water to drain. This can also be used to just dry the bottle in general.

Thermo effect

Our products are double-walled, insulated bottles. Therefore, the bottle remains the same on the outside whether it contains something ice cold or hot. That also means, that the outside temperature will not affect the temperature of the drink inside the bottle.

This cup purposely does not keep hot/cold for the same length of time as our drinking bottles - this means that your beverage will be ready-to-drink sooner. However, the CUP2GO is developed according to the same double-walled principle as our thermo drinking bottles. This means that it not only retains heat, but also ensures that the cup does not get too hot to hold.

If you have a start temperature of 90 degrees and put the lid on immediately, the temperature will decrease with around 10 degrees every half hour.

Yes, of course. As long as it is empty, you can board your flight with your water bottle.

At AYA&IDA, we use recycled packaging, so you may receive a box with a little beauty flaw - that it's just because it's preloved.

At AYA&IDA, we go to great lengths to try to minimize our consumption of packaging and waste in order to protect the environment. So what exactly are we doing? We recycle packaging whenever possible, and we choose packaging made of sustainable materials when we shop ourselves. We use environmentally friendly biofill made from corn granules - completely without plastic and chemicals. Dissolve it in water in a few minutes and use it as fertilizer for your plants.
