My very first move toward eco-friendly habits starts with a reusable cup. I was living in Sydney, Australia and saw the amount of coffee cup waste that is being generated because takeaway cups cannot be recycled. Shocked, I wanted to find an alternative right away. And even better, I found cafes are rewarding customers for bringing their own reusable cup. We receive discounted coffee while saving money and the planet, count me in!
Moving back to America I brought this habit with me. I take my reusable cup absolutely everywhere and can use it for hot and cold beverages. People were intrigued but also thought it was a bit of a hassle to bring a cup everywhere. I knew their feelings because sometimes I just wouldn’t have space for it. I was excited to find a collapsible reusable cup that is just as useful as it is compact. So I want to show people that it is so easy to carry with me and I can avoid takeaway cups altogether. Introducing Stojo, my new best friend.
Started in New York by 3 Fathers who lived life on the go. Coffee would get them through their day but they realized how many takeaway cups they would accumulate drinking it 3-4 times a day. Oy vey that is a lot of coffee cup waste. Understanding convenience is a factor, they started to realize that everyone was opting for a takeaway cup rather than a bulky reusable cup to carry with them. It sparked the idea to create a collapsible, portable, and leak-proof reusable cup.
You can find it on Amazon, here too!
I was gifted this because I wanted to try out the design and durability of the product. It comes in a 12oz and a 16oz. I like the 16 oz because I can use it for smoothies as well. They retail for $19.99-$24.99 (depending on the size) and it is definitely worth it.
I wash mine by hand or you can put it on the top shelf of your dishwasher, unscrewed and separated. They are made free of BPA and Phthalates and use only FDA approved recyclable #5 plastic. This reusable cup is always a conversation starter and I love sharing their purpose with people!
I will definitely be sticking it with it and that is the honest truth. *This posts contains affiliate links*
