2. Why is it called a Barnacle?
Inspired by a real-life barnacle that attaches to a whale or a clam shell, the Barnacle name is indicative of our coasters ability to attach (and stay attached) to nearly any cup until you purposely remove it. Additionally, it represents our company's mission to play our part in the significant fight to clean up our oceans. We plan to collaborate with several organizations using revolutionary strategies to improve marine life habitat by focusing their efforts on plastic removal - we have already secured a partnership with The Ocean Cleanup.
3. What is the best way to “install” it onto my cup?
We find it easiest to place your Barnacle on a flat surface and center your cup hovering over the top of the Barnacle, then simultaneously push the cup down and twist it into place until the bottom of your cup makes contact with the bottom of the Barnacle.
