Reusable Cups - Gifts for Coffee Lovers

Updated on December 8, 2012

An Eco-Friendly Gift for Coffee Drinkers!

Do you know someone who has to start his/her day with a cup of coffee? Give a reusable coffee cup - it's eco-friendly, handy, and comes in a variety of great designs to suit different personalities. As an added bonus, some coffee shops offer a discount when you bring your own cup so you'd be giving the gift of savings too!

The reusable cup is suitable for guys and girls so it's an ideal secret Santa gift. It's also a nice gift for coworkers - after all, where else is a jolt of caffeine more needed than in the workplace? The cup can be used for hot tea too of course ;)

The Shocking Truth

- A whopping 2.5B synthetic cups are wasted in Britain every year (from DailyMail.co.uk)

- In the USA, the numbers are even bigger: 16B paper cups every year (from carbonrally.com)

That's why it's time to go eco-friendly and switch to reusable cups!

The Solution

Let's cut down on all the waste and start reusing cups. Reusable cups are completely functional and look great too!

The Reusable Can - A Nifty Modern way to Hold your Beverages

The reusable can looks like an ordinary soda can... but it's actually an environmentally friendly reusable drinking bottle! It can house cold beverages or hot drinks

Reusable cups that look like Takeaway cups

These nifty little things look just like the average take-away cups you get from famous coffee shops but they're actually reusable, eco-friendly alternatives made from melamine, polypropylene, ceramic, or porcelain. They can contain cold and hot beverages and conveniently come with a coffee sleeve for when you're holding a hot cup of joe or tea. There's even one made in the design of a famous New York City place!
