Nectar from the Gods.
Whatever you call it and however many cups you drink a day, coffee is a huge part of many people’s daily routines.
Not a coffee person? Maybe you drink tea instead? Or, maybe you’re one of the responsible ones who consistently gets 2L of water into their body daily!
Whatever you’re drinking, chances are you’ve been guilty of single use plastics and cups in the past, so we’re here to tell you why you should invest in reusable drink ware ASAP!
Let’s start with the most obvious one. Reusable drink ware is infinitely better for the environment. If you get a takeaway coffee every morning before work, that’s 5 single-use cups that will likely go straight to the landfill, as most takeaway cups cannot be recycled due to the plastic lining on the inside.
Additionally, single use cups are not a sustainable use of resources as they cannot be made with recycled materials. Takeaway cups must be made with brand-new cardboard in order to comply with health and safety regulations. So, that little cup that held your morning coffee for 30 minutes leaves a significant carbon footprint on the environment.
A majority of reusable drink ware, (certainly all the ones available at Made by Fressko), are insulated so that your drink stays warm/cool for longer. If you’re the type of person who likes to take their time with their morning coffee or tea, reusable drink ware is a no brainer! There is nothing worse than sitting down on a cold winter morning to go through your emails, only to realise that your coffee/tea is lukewarm.
Insulated drink ware isn’t just for the winter though! They can also keep drinks cool in the summer. So, that iced tea you made in the morning? Still icy cold when you tuck into lunch!
One of the many reasons to love reusable drink ware is that it’s so easy to find one that suits your style! Think of it as an accessory to your outfit and a complement to your lifestyle as it’s easily available in different colours, materials and finishes.
You can find reusable drink ware made from stainless steel, glass, ceramic, BPA-free materials, the list goes on! The double-walled range from Made by Fressko is also made from sustainable bamboo, so you can even find drink ware that’s in-line with your ethical beliefs!
Lots of coffee shops offer a small discount (usually about 50cents!) on coffees when you bring your own cup. That’s a saving of $2.50 a week. It may seem like a small amount, but adds up to $130 a year!
It isn’t just reusable coffee cups that save you money though! Reusable drinking bottles also mean that you don’t have to pay $4 for a bottle of water the next time you’re out.
Some plastic coffee lids may contain the chemical BPA, which can affect the taste of your company, but more importantly, could be harmful to your health when ingested in large quantities. Using a coffee cup with a BPA-free lid eliminates any risk to your health as you enjoy your hot beverage.
Bottles from the Made by Fressko Original Series also allow you to infuse fruit with your water, which is a great way to encourage you to drink that 2L of water a day! We can’t be the only ones who had “drink more water” on their resolution lists this year right?
Most reusable drink ware have lids that prevents leaks and spills. You won’t have to worry about spilling coffee in your car as you drive to work or getting tea stains on your top during your morning commute.
One of the best things about reusable drink ware is that it allows you to completely customise your own drink!
Not feeling the coffee this morning? Make a tea instead! Trying to save some dollars for your next holiday? Skip your morning visits to your local café for the week and brew your own cuppa at home. Feel like experimenting in the kitchen? Maybe a cinnamon mocha cappuccino topped with whipped cream can be your new morning pick-me-up!
