4 reasons why you need a reusable coffee cup

We've all heard of the reusable coffee cup craze, for a very good reason. With such a large part of our population living for their coffee fix at least once a day (more like 2 or 3 times!) or enjoying a tea or another hot beverage from a cafe, the number of disposable cups being used is huge. It's great to see how quickly everyone has taken action, in the form of buying a reusable coffee cup. Here are the top four reasons why we think it's time for you to invest in one.

1. It's environmentally friendly

The main reason for getting a reusable cup is the positive effect it has on the environment. Disposable cups are hard to recycle due to their waterproof plastic lining, so they often end up in landfill. Reusable cups take away the need for these disposable cups and it only takes about 15 cups of coffee before it starts benefitting the environment.

2. You'll save money

Most cafes will give you a small discount for bringing in your own cup and these saving will add up quickly if you're a coffee-lover. So why not save money while you're saving the environment?

3. It's stylish

With reusable cups being such a big thing right now, we are benefitting because there are so many to choose from. This may be the hardest part about getting a cup, because there are so many different sizes, patterns and extras for each cup.

4. It'll keep your drink warm for longer

There is nothing worse than a lukewarm coffee and this is yet another reason why reusable cups are great. They're better at retaining heat than a disposable cup and most of them can be sealed to stop heat from escaping, which also stops those coffee spills that we all dread.

Have we convinced you yet that reusable cups are the best? If so, here are some options to get you started:
