The fall season is synonymous with all things cozy: warm blankets, chunky sweaters, sweet and spicy scents, and, of course, autumnal drinks. But before you settle for that branded cardboard cup, consider the merits of investing in a chic, reusable coffee cup, the better to sip sustainably.

Anyone who has ever stepped foot in a coffee shop is aware of the amount of waste that comes with a single seasonal beverage. The 58 billion cups used annually require approximately 20 million trees and 12 billion gallons of water to manufacture, and, once tossed, can take up to 30 years to break down in the landfill, as many can't be recycled. Add a plastic lid, and your daily caffeine fix comes with some serious baggage.

Rather than switching up your routine and sacrificing your morning transaction, bring your reusable mug along for an easy eco-friendly swap.

The Benefits of Reusable Coffee Cups

In addition to being better for the planet, reusable, insulated, mugs keep your drinks at the correct temperature for a longer period of time. The mugs themselves boast a long lifespan, too—once you invest in a favorite, you'll have it for years to come.

Temperature-preserving and lifespans aside, reusable coffee cups are also the safer choice. Single-use cups and lids can contain harmful chemicals like BPA, which leaches into warm beverages—likely not the add-on you would choose were it on the menu.  

TLDR: Reusable mugs are stylish, easy to clean, better for your body, and a simple means of eliminating waste. Here, seven eco-friendly cups that will make even the most seasoned barista a little bit jealous.

7 Reusable Coffee Cups to Sip From This Fall

This isn't your typical reusable mug. The sustainable option repurposes waste, as it's made from coffee husk, a by-product from the production of coffee. It's durable, chic, and just waiting to hold your frothy pumpkin spice latte.
