ecomom is one of my favourite sponsors! As you know, I have them on my site pretty regularly. There products are all dedicated to being eco-friendly and saving this wonderful earth for the generations to come behind us.
I’m sure you have walked down the street and have seen the litter left behind from plastic and paper cups. Take out drink cups fill our landfills, and it is something that is so easy to eliminate. I do try to use travel mugs as often as possible, but there is something about the shape and feel of the typical coffee cup (or tea in my case) that seems almost religious about the daily caffeine fix. With these new reusable coffee mugs from ecomom, there is no excuse to get the throwaway kind anymore.
For review, I received a ceramic coffee cup that is the same shape and form as those regular throw away cups. Even the cover is the same shape, but is reusable! When the cup is filled with pipping hot liquid the ceramic does get hot, but there is a large silicone sleeve that protects your hands. I like using my fancy mug, but I have to admit that I’m not perfect and I still do get some of those classic paper cups when I buy my teas. But, when they are coming from home, I always use one of my reusable mugs.
I also received reusable straws – I’m sure you see lots of plastic straws laying around as well, these too fill up our landfills and takes years to decompose. The straws that we received are made of metal and have a slight bend, just like a regular straw. Sure there is no bendy action going on, but the straw works just like a regular plastic one – it’s just a bit heavier so if you have a light cup, it might make it tip over. Straws are something that kids LOVE to use, sometimes it makes the difference between a happy dinner and a very upsetting dinner. Straws have happy magic powers 🙂
These two products are a simple and easy way to make little differences in your daily life that have a large impact in our world.
