"It's estimated that 16 billion disposable coffee cups are used each year. These reusable coffee cups are here to help!"

Coffee is a staple in most morning routines—many of us can’t start our day without it. However, whether you make coffee at home or you prefer grabbing it on the go from a coffee chain, using a reusable coffee cup is a simple way to make your morning routine more sustainable.

It’s estimated that 16 billion disposable coffee cups are used each year. While convenient, those to-go cups are nearly impossible to recycle. They’re usually plastic, paper with a plastic lining, or Styrofoam—and, because of that, don’t have a very strong track record for winding up anywhere but the trash.

If you’re looking to decrease waste, it’s time to trade the single-use cup for a reusable coffee cup that you can take anywhere. Here are our favorite options that are perfect whether you’re on the go or staying in.

6 Reusable Coffee Cup Options That Reduce Waste

Featured in the Brightly Shop is this on-the-go coffee cup. It holds 8 ounces and is made from an eco-composite polymer and discarded coffee husk.
