Eco Cup

Updated on May 17, 2011

Eco Friendly Reusable Coffee Cup: The Eco Cup

The Eco Cup is a cool way to save money and help the environment, just by drinking a coffee. When you start drinking your coffee in a reusable cup like the Eco Cup, you'll be preventing a disposable cup from being made, and from being thrown away. Baristas also seem to take notice when they see this unique, eco friendly cup! This cup is also made of porcelain, and has a silicone lid that wash perfectly in the dishwasher.

The reusable Eco Cup is is single-walled and requires a silicone sleeve which comes with it or the cup can get too hot to touch. Holds 16 ounces. The sleeve that comes with the cup is brown or white. This is also a worth alternative to the "I Am Not a Paper Cup!"

The reusable Eco Cup isn't just good for the environment, but it's good for your wallet. Every time you go into a coffee shop and you bring your own cup, they should give you a discount for going reusable (most coffee shops anyway). Extra points for bringing your own reusable sleeve, too!

Five Reasons Why You Should Switch to a Reusable Coffee Cup Today:

1. There's only so much space in landfills. Once we run out of room, that's it. No more room. Game over. The time to switch to reusables is now.

2. Plastic never biodegrades. If you drink your iced coffee in a plastic cup that you throw away, that cup is going to exist forever. Sure, hundreds of years from now it might be broken down into tiny bits, but it's still going to be shards of plastic that will never truly break down.

3. Coffee tastes gross in disposable cups. Studies have shown that taste can be affected by the cup that the drink is in. Drinking in a cup that won't leech things into the drink is a good idea for your health.

4. You get a small discount every time you use a reusable cup. It's not much, but every penny counts these days.

5. It's setting a good example for other people. When others see you using your reusable cup, they get curious. What are they doing? They think about going reusable, they talk about it with other people, and they might even start going reusable too. It's especially important around children to lead by good example.

Instructions for use:

Ensure lid is securely fitted to the cup when used. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

To clean the lid of coffee stains: soak in boiling water with three lemon wedges or wash using toothpaste.

      well I got one~ I am a senior in high school and it's perfect for those who, like me, are always on a hurry because they are going to be late. So I fill it up with whatever I feel like having, tea, American coffee, cappuccino... and have it on the way to school. I just love it!

      Cons: being a porcelain cup, I am always worried it will fall and break, so I am aware of that! And it's kinda heavy even if it's empty.

      Very nice lens.... I use a reusable mug but that's because I'm usually drinking tea at home (while I'm on Squidoo, of course!) :)

      Well, I was "this" close to buying one of those the other day at the local Marshalls store. I think I will surely have one soon! Love my coffee, you know?

      I don't drink coffee outside the home but I think this is a fabulous idea. Of all the litter I see the most common is coffee cups.
