Promotional Travel Mugs to be environmentally friendly

Promotional travel mugs have been used increasingly more over the years as the country has become more and more conscious of its eco credentials. 

So, how are travel mugs considered to be more eco-friendly than general household mugs?  This is due to the simple fact that they travel. If you have a coffee every morning on the way to work, it is likely that you will use a takeaway cup from your favourite coffee chain or independent café. Once you have finished using the takeaway cup you are then likely to throw it away. Coffee shops are now starting to offer discounts to customers who bring their own cups to fill up.

This brings up the next point, travel mugs can be used to save money. If you were to purchase a cup of coffee every day from a café, it is likely that you'll end up spending nearly £20 a week! However, if you were to make the coffee at home, you'll be saving a lot of money, or if your coffee at home isn't up to the same standard, you can often get a discount in the café for bringing your own cup. It's a win, win situation! 

Coffee shops are constantly encouraging customers to be more environmentally friendly which is why they offer discounts. Sometimes, they won't offer a discount but instead a free 'syrup' or 'coffee shot', whatever the incentive is, it is often better for you to take in your own coffee mug. The more people using their own mugs, the fewer paper cups will be used, meaning less wastage and impact on the environment.

Of course, the environmental benefits aren't the only benefits to travel mugs, their main purpose is to keep your drink at a constant temperature. There is a common misconception that travel mugs can only be used to keep drinks hot, however, if you were to put a cold drink inside, it would also keep that drink at a constant temperature for you. Unlike with a normal household mug, the mugs are insulated meaning the liquid inside is kept at a constant temperature. 

Travel mugs are used by millions of people every day, meaning they make a great promotional product as they are almost guaranteed to be used. Promotional travel mugs can give your company great brand exposure, as they are used when travelling, have a look at the range on our website.
