These zero waste travel mugs, are ideal if you going off for a hike somewhere, or enjoying a day at the beach. Travel mugs tend to be a bit larger than a reusable coffee cup, think of these as an eco alternative to those tartan flasks with the plastic cups, that you likely used as a child, when on camping holidays.
The vacuum flask was invented by Scottish scientist Sir James Dewar back in 1892. He was an expert in cryogenics (not just freezing your body after death, but the study of anything at very low temperatures). He found that placing a glass bottle in a larger glass bottled evacuated the air, and created a vacuum to keep temperatures stable. So he hired a professional glass blower to make the first Thermos flask.
This vacuum insulated travel mug is an elegant stainless steel coffee baker, to keep drinks hot or cold. Perfect for coffee, tea or smoothies, the inside stainless steel beaker can be used like a disposable cup, and the outside stays cool, if drinks are hot. In several colours.
Zan + Me Ceramic Travel Mug with silicone lid is has an unglazed outer surface beneath the glaze pattern, to enhance the cup’s tactile quality. The lid is made from a sand-based material that is not biodegradable but won’t break down as a fast as plastic, and is designed to last for years, before being securely disposed of. The hand-thrown mug is glazed inside and out with food-safe glazes.
