Wild & Stone's reusable glass coffee cup is designed to give you a true coffee shop experience. This 12oz container comes with a silicone cover to keep the heat away from your hands. Grab one today and get involved in the fight against single-use plastic.
We have chosen to use glass as a material so as not to affect the taste of your drink, as metal or bamboo has been shown to leech harmful chemicals into your drink. Your drink of choice will stay the way your barista intended.
Are reusable coffee cups good for the environment?
According to a report from the UK government, disposable coffee cups are made from paper and lined with plastic, which makes them waterproof. This plastic lining cannot be removed by most recycling facilities.
Once the cup is used, the paper part is then usually contaminated by the cup’s contents. There is no UK or European market for contaminated paper food packaging.
If that wasn’t enough, 2.5 billion coffee cups are used and thrown away each year in the UK - enough to stretch around the world roughly five and a half times - but less than 1 in 400 - just 0.25% - are recycled.
Investing in a reusable coffee cup is one of the easiest ways to do your bit and reduce plastic waste.
How do you clean a reusable coffee cup?
Reusable coffee cups are super easy to clean. If you have a dishwasher, throw it in the next load on the top shelf, or simply hand wash it in the sink.
For a deeper clean, fill your mug with a tablespoon of distilled white vinegar and warm water, let it sit for around 15 minutes, then rinse it out.
