The delicious and natural flavor of one Cap was designed to last for the whole capacity of the bottle (14 oz. / 410 ml)
Yerba mate comes from the leaves of a native species of the holly tree, Ilex Paraguariensis, found deep in the South American rainforest. This powerful plant has been enjoyed for many centuries and for good reason. – Its richness in antioxidants, and nutrients can boost energy and improve mental focus without any of the unpleasant side effects like jitters or crashing.
Nowadays, mate is part of the daily routine of almost everyone in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and South Brazil, as well as of lots of #matelovers around the world.
The consumption of mate improves cardiovascular functions while boosting the body’s defenses and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels. The main properties of yerba mate are: fat-free, low calorie and low sodium. It contains micronutrients such as magnesium, vitamins B1 and B6. Research has shown mate to provide anti-cancer and anti-diabetic therapeutic properties.
When you use MateCaps, what you drink is clean enough to go back into the Earth ♻️? Nourish your body well while nourishing your Earth well, too ?
Decreed the symbol of friendship by Yari, the mythical goddess of mate, the culture of yerba mate is just as rich as its flavor.
The origins of yerba mate begin with the Guarani, an ancient tribe from the South American rainforests. The Guarani worshiped the yerba mate tree as a gift from the gods and prized it for its strengthening properties.
European explorers soon learned of all the uses and virtues of yerba mate from the Guarani people. Its consumption quickly spread across the region as it gained a reputation as the “drink of the gods”. Further on, the Jesuits introduced yerba mate to the rest of the world, and today the tradition of drinking yerba mate has been passed down for generations: yerba mate awakens the mind, brings people together and creates a community that stretches around the world.
MateCaps was designed to drink mate individually for when you’re on the-go, but what if we keep the values of sharing a pleasant moment with our loved ones?
We asked our international Instagram community “What does mate mean to you?” and these were some of their answers:
To keep the tradition alive we created the “Friendship Pack” so you can keep a bottle for yourself, and gift the other to those you love! Enjoy your mate while boosting your buddy, too. Share the wonderful benefits of mate with your dearest friends and family, and bring them the South American experience through their own bottle. They’ll think of you, even when they’re on the go!
We know you live a busy life, and you rely on your daily energy boost. The problem is that the typical solutions all come with costs, either to your wallet or to the Earth. For example, a typical 6-pack of canned yerba mate drinks costs around $35.99. However, our monthly CapsBox subscription provides 24 Caps, equivalent to 24 drinks, for only $14.99. That’s more than four times the yerba mate for half the price, and 24 fewer cans dumped into landfills per month!
You don’t have to worry about running out of organic mate: Once you get your MateCaps Pack our monthly subscription will be ready to apply at matecaps.com. With your pledge you will get a lifetime 25% discount in our Caps subscription.
Earth Aid Solutions
Beyond the sustainable design of the MateCaps experience, this project is committed to making positive, lasting impacts on the environment. We partnered up with Earth Aid Solutions, a start-up NGO working to fight deforestation in the Amazon. Earth Aid planted 1,000 native trees in North-Eastern Brazil in 2019, and are planning to plant 10,000 in 2020, and 100,000 in 2021. And guess what? For every Kickstarter reward, they will plant one more native tree in the Amazon!
As entrepreneurs, we feel privileged to be running this project, and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to make their ideas into a reality. Fortalecer Misiones is an Argentine social NGO focused on financing local women entrepreneurs from Misiones, one of the main yerba mate cultivation areas. The MateCaps team has committed to providing entrepreneurial consultancy to the Fortalecer Misiones’ staff. For every Kickstarter reward, we donate 50 cents to this cause.

We started MateCaps because we saw a need for a natural and sustainable way to help people stay energized. Our team understands the importance of staying awake and focused for long workdays and late nights. Unfortunately, coffee and energy drinks were bad for us, leaving us jittery and anxious, and bad for the environment, creating waste with one-use containers.
Every founder of the MateCaps team is from the land of yerba mate in South America, so we understand the beauty of the plant, the feel-good energy and the valued traditions of the drink. As we’ve traveled far from our homes, we’ve been inspired to share the natural benefits of yerba mate with those around us.
