Not only is your thrice-daily java habit turning your teeth a sexy shade of goldenrod, but you’re also destroying the earth. One cardboard latte vessel at a time. Burn in hell, Planet Killer! (That’s not us speaking, it’s our inner eco-activist. We would never use such harsh terms about anyone.)
Well, now you can head into your local Starbucks, Pearl Cup, It’s A Grind, Crooked Tree or neighborhood 7-11 with your head held high. With the Eco Cup in hand, you are now a superior coffee-bean-lovin’ being.
The single-walled porcelain cup looks comes in a package that screams, “I’m Not a Paper Cup!”, but this to-go cup is microwave and dishwasher safe. And just like the cute guy with low self-esteem sitting by the air hockey table at JR’s, it can be used again. And again. And again.
Just make sure to use protection (in both instances, of course). Without the silicone sleeve, this sucker will get really, really hot. Because once you take one of these in to McDonald’s to be filled with piping hot coffee, if you burn your poor little pinkie there’ll be nobody to sue but yourself.
Eco Cup: $20
