With convenience being at the forefront of today’s interest, it’s no wonder why plastic, disposable drinkware are used abundantly. But today, stainless steel tumblers and water bottles are slowly chipping away at plastic drinkware.
Vacuum insulated stainless steel drinkware work and they work well. In fact, there are many benefits of drinking from stainless steel mugs, tumblers and water bottles as opposed to plastic and glass.
If you are looking to make the switch to reusable drinkware and unsure if you should choose stainless steel, here are 5 reasons why it’s the best option.
Durable Enough to Last a Lifetime
Stainless steel tumblers and bottles are highly rugged with lifelong properties that do not degrade. Unlike its glass counterpart, it can take a beating and still continue to function the same as before.
Glass and ceramic drinkware are fragile, making them not very durable in case of accidents. Reusable plastic water bottles can crack or degrade with repeated use and washing. So when it comes to longevity and durability, stainless steel is the clear winner.
Safest Material to Drink From
The discovery of chemicals such as BPA and phthalates in plastic containers, drinkware and in the lining of many aluminum bottles have set the health community buzzing. This makes stainless steel the best option for healthy hydration.
Stainless steel is non-toxic and completely free of BPA, phthalates, lead, zinc and other nasty elements linked to cancer and other health and safety concerns. And due to its inherent antibacterial and hygienic properties, stainless steel has been widely used in the food and medical industries for years.
Easy to Clean
Unlike some materials, stainless steel is easy to clean due to its ability to resist stains, corrosion and rust. Handwashing your stainless steel drinkware with dish soap and water will do the trick and have it looking new and ready to reuse.
Excellent Temperature Retention
It’s hard to beat stainless steel for keeping your beverage very hot or very cold for hours. Stainless steel insulates naturally, keeping your liquids at their original temperature for longer. Pair it with vacuum insulation and you’ll never want to use a plastic bottle again.
Better for the Planet
Giving up plastic water bottles for reusable stainless steel ones is not only better for your health, but it’s also better for the planet.
We are producing over 380 million tons of plastic every year, and some reports indicate that up to 50% of that is for single-use purposes — utilized for just a few moments, but on the planet for at least several hundred years. All of this ends up in the waterways, oceans and soil that humans and animals depend on for survival.
Because stainless steel drinkware is durable and can be used for many years, less waste is produced when compared to disposable cups and bottles.
