“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
― Coco Chanel
In case you hadn’t heard, it’s actually cool to give a damn about the environment these days. I’m not saying you have to do it all to show you care either. But you can show you give a damn by adding one very underrated, but very chic accessory to your outfit – the cute travel mug.
It’s time to ditch the disposable coffee cup and travel with your own!
Not only are travel mugs cute as hell these days but by using one, you may also inspire others to travel with their own. Think of the positive impact you can have on a stranger just showing you give a damn about coffee cup pollution. You’re not only making your world better, but theirs as well.
There are so many really chic travel mugs to keep you looking even more stylish than if you were carrying a cup that is worth nothing but 1 cup of coffee.
Think about it.
How good do we really look when we would rather carry something that was worthy of being trash immediately after 1 use? Not only that, but you’re saying to the world that you kinda don’t care about it…
Did you know that the polyethylene (the plastic resin inner lining) in the disposable cups means that they are not recyclable, even though they are mostly paper? Biodegradable cups aren’t much better either. They only work if they are disposed in a commercial grade composter – not a recycling bin. How many commercial grade composters do you see in your daily commute?
The easiest way you can make a positive difference in your day is by carrying your own cute travel mug with you.
Here are some great options:
Feel awkward about using a reusable cup? One of the easiest solutions to this is by picking up a reusable coffee cup from your local coffee shop (if they sell them). Using the coffee shop’s own merchandise will instantly put you at ease and you never know, a lot of places offer discounts when you use their merchandise or bring your own cup!
Coffee giant Starbucks will give you a 40c discount each time you use one of their reusable coffee cups!
Every day we get the opportunity to make a positive difference in the world and it can be as easy as packing a travel mug in your tote.
