Coffee to go is an essential part of daily life. I doubt you can walk more than a city block without spotting another person with a cardboard coffee cup.
Having a cup of your favourite beverage on the way to work or on the school run makes the commute far more enjoyable. But with billions of disposable cups going to landfill each year, it's time to make daily coffee habits more sustainable.
The EU already plan to ban single-use plastics, including single-use coffee cups, by 2030. So, why not get your reusable travel mug before the ban comes into place. Here are seven reasons why you should say goodbye to disposable cups and buy a reusable coffee mug.
It Reduces Waste
One disposable coffee cup won't pollute an entire ocean but think about how many coffees you buy in disposable cups each year. Then think about how many people you see buying takeaway coffees every day. In the UK alone, an estimated 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups are thrown away each year. The majority of those cups will not be recycled.
Reducing waste is the number one reason to buy a reusable stainless steel coffee mug, but there are plenty of other benefits.
Your Coffee Stays Hot (or cold)
You either want your coffee piping hot in winter or ice-cold in summer. Plastic, Styrofoam, and cardboard cups just don't do the job well. A double-wall stainless steel coffee thermos will keep your coffee hot or cold for hours. You can enjoy your coffee at the right temperature on the way to work, on a summer picnic, while camping, or whenever you need a drink to go.
They Last Longer
You can't take a disposable coffee mug on a hike or put it inside a full picnic bag. Cardboard or plastic coffee mugs would be squashed and leaking within minutes! But stainless-steel coffee mugs are made of tougher stuff. Throw the FLASKE coffee mug inside a bag or tuck it into your backpack pocket without fear, it won't leak, break, or get crushed. Even when you collide with another passenger on a crowded metro car.
Unlike disposable coffee mugs, stainless steel drinks containers are designed to withstand knocks and drops. Plus, you can wash a stainless steel coffee mug or water bottle and use it for years.
Your Coffee Tastes Better
Styrofoam coffee cups and disposable lids can leach harmful chemicals, such as BPA, into your morning beverage. They give your coffee a nasty plastic taste too. Stainless steel doesn't hold bad odours or leak toxic chemicals. With a stainless steel coffee mug, you'll never need to drink a plastic-flavoured coffee again.
It saves you money
A reusable coffee mug won't just protect the planet and improve your health; it will also save you money. Many popular coffee chains offer discounts for customers who bring their own coffee mugs. Plus, with your own travel coffee mug, you can prepare your favourite beverage at home or at the office instead of buying something on the go.
A Personalised Coffee Mug Is The Perfect Gift
You're not the only person who will benefit from a travel coffee mug. Your friends, family, in-laws, and spouse can also become more sustainable with in a stylish FLASKE coffee mug. A personalised coffee mug is a practical gift that looks great and lasts for years!
