This is another habit people have gotten into and I think we all can agree that single-use water bottles and to-go cups and mugs create a tremendous amount of waste! Bringing my water bottle with me has become second nature, but what about coffee mugs or cups for cold drinks? I've recently started using a travel mug for my hot coffee from coffee shops and I have a reusable cup with lid that I can use for iced tea while I'm out. I just keep them in my bag or car (after cleaning, of course!) so they’re always waiting for me. And there’s a big bonus to doing this - I've found that most places actually give me a discount when I use my own mug or cup!
There are some beautiful options out there of reusable water bottles, mugs, and cups. Some are expensive. Some are cheaper. Some keep drinks hot for 12 hours. Some keep drinks hot for 1 hour. Do some research, find something you like, and keep it in your car or bag so it's there whenever you need it!
