Drinking cold beverages on the go just got a little greener

These acrylic to-go cups from Vessel Drinkware are so fantastic. I love grabbing iced teas to go all Spring and Summer long, so that I can have icy cool beverages as I cruise around the neighborhood, but I hate throwing away the disposable plastic cups after one use because it’s so wasteful.

While many coffee shops offer discounts on warm beverages if you use your own travel mug, not many offer incentives for using your own cup for cold beverages. And sure, you can use a traditional travel mug for cold beverages, but let’s be honest, it’s just not the same to drink something with ice cubes from a heavy plastic container without a straw. Plus, if you use that same mug for coffee, it always tastes like coffee, no matter what you put in there next.

So! Why not sell some of these reusable cold beverage containers? Sustainable and beautiful? Starbucks, I’m looking at you. Joe’s Coffee, why not? Stumptown? I know you’re fancy and all, but you can give this a try, right?
