Every year, half a trillion disposable cups are manufactured annually around the world; that’s 70 cups for every person on the planet. Only one in 400 of these are recycled in the UK, the rest ending up in landfill or as litter on the street or in the ocean. But things are changing: Starbucks has started charging 5p for disposable coffee cups in 35 London stores as part of a three-month trial and many coffee shops are now offering discounts for those asking for their beverage in a reusable cup. There’s no excuse for single use.
Since 2009, Hydro Flask’s mission to save the world from the lukewarm has been successful, especially after the UK release of the Hydro Flip™ Coffee Flask in 2016. Now, this popular product is available in eleven different colourways and, from spring 2018, three sizes: 12 oz [large], 16 oz [grande] and 20 oz [venti].
We were introduced to Hydro Flask a few months ago and let us tell you, not only do you get a sense of well-being from helping reduce plastic wastage, the flasks are funky, modern and fantastic at keeping your beverage warm!
Hydro Flask’s line of Coffee Flasks have been designed with the coffee drinker in mind – with TempShield™ double-wall vacuum insulation to keep hot drinks piping hot for up to 12 hours [6 hours with 12 oz] cold drinks icy cold for up to 24 hours. The Flip Lid offers one-handed access to your favourite beverage.
As with all Hydro Flask products, the bottles are BPA-free and 100% recyclable. Hydro Flasks are made from stainless steel increasing durability and diminishing the risk of tainted drinks meaning this afternoon’s green tea will never taste like this morning’s iced mocha. The insulated bottles have a proprietary powder coating for a secure, sweat-free grip and come in plenty of bright colours.
Take a Hydro Flip™ Lid Coffee Flask next time you head to your local coffee shop – many cafes offer incentives when you bring your own cup [see below]. Not only are there financial and environmental benefits to using a reusable stainless steel cup, but health wins too: with plastic alternatives [such as BPA] being potentially harmful to your body.
