Top To-Go Coffee Cups for the Planet and Your Brand
Go Reusable and Make a Difference
A daily cup of coffee is a habit for many people. Studies estimate that 62% of Americans drink coffee every day. That’s a lot of coffee and a lot of cups. The cup may not get a lot of thought or attention, but coffee cups, particularly disposable cups, have a significant impact. We look at the different to-go coffee cups available and explain how the right cup can help the planet and your brand.
Disposable coffee cups are made from various materials, including styrofoam, paper, and plastic. The bottom line is that none of these options are great for the planet since they are difficult or impossible to recycle.
Styrofoam cannot be recycled and typically ends up in landfills where it takes up space since it does not biodegrade. Paper cups feature a plastic lining that allows the cups to hold liquid. This plastic coating is necessary for the cup to function but makes it impossible to recycle the cup. Some paper cups feature a lining made from lactic acid, which allows the cup to be compostable. However, most municipalities do not have the resources to support compostable items, so these cups are likely to be thrown in the trash.
Plastic cups, commonly used for iced coffee, tend to meet a similar fate as Styrofoam and paper cups. Most recycling programs do not accept the type of plastic used to construct these cups and the straws.
Eco-Friendly and Caffeinated To-Go
Many coffee shops offer ceramic mugs for customers drinking their coffee at the café to reduce trash and the negative impacts of disposable coffee cups. Ceramic mugs are an excellent option for people who plan to hang out but are not viable for customers who want to take their drink to go. Reusable travel mugs provide a solution. Whether given out as takeaways at an event or sold at your retail business, you can help your customers make a difference with custom reusable travel mugs printed with your logo and sharing a positive environmental message.
Reusable travel mugs are eco-friendly because they eliminate the need and use of disposable cups. The reusable design means one travel mug can do the job of hundreds, possibly thousands of disposable cups, so all of that trash is never created and never sent off to a landfill.
Travel mugs are often made from plastic and sometimes stainless steel, so they have far less environmental impact because stainless steel and heavy-weight plastic are usually accepted in curbside recycling programs.
Promotional Travel Coffee Mugs
Reusable travel mugs help the planet while making it easy for people to take their drinks on the go, but they also provide an opportunity to promote your brand. A coffee mug is prime marketing real estate. More than half of Americans drink coffee daily, and many of them take it to go. If your customers sip their coffee from a mug emblazoned with your branding, they’ll think about your brand all the time.
Find the Right Reusable Travel Mug
You have plenty of options when it comes to selecting the right reusable travel mug for your brand. The recycled plastic construction makes these coffee mugs eco-friendly, and they’re recyclable. These BPA-free mugs fit most vehicle cup holders so your customers can easily and safely hit the road with their coffee.
The 24-hour tumbler can keep hot drinks warm for 5.5 hours or cold drinks chilled for 24 hours, ensuring your customer’s beverage of choice will stay at an ideal temperature. Select from a two-sided or wrap imprint area to make this tumbler represent your brand.
Or if you like to run cold, these polypropylene cups are in the same style as most cups used for iced coffee, and they feature a double-wall construction to help keep the beverage chilled. The lid screws on for a secure fit, and the coordinating straw is durable enough for regular use.
Make a Statement
Reusable travel mugs are convenient and useful for most consumers, so they will likely get a lot of use. This visibility is excellent for your brand while making it possible for your customers to use less plastic and help the planet.
