7 Re-Usable On-The-Go Cups – A Step Into The Zero-Waste Lifestyle

Take away coffee, whether we are trying to wake up during our daily commute or just running errands, is something that we just can’t give up. It’s easy, quick and helps us get on with our busy days, but this innocent habit of ours hurts the environment a lot more than we would expect it to. 99 percent of the disposable cups we use, even though they seem to be made of card board, are not recyclable and they end up in our oceans. And to be honest they are not always the best-looking item to carry around. So, it is about time to stop using disposable cups and get ourselves more solid, environmentally friendly cup to add our daily routine a little more personalized touch. Luckily, many of our favourite coffee shops support the idea of reusable coffee cups and they even sell their own. It is also a great way to save a couple of bucks as many shops may knock a bit off the price when you bring your own! There is more! We have selected 7 reusable cups to fit every need and budget so that you wouldn’t have to spend too much time to select which one is best for you.
