The 6 Best Reusable Coffee Cups of 2022 to Keep your Morning Routine Green

The 6 Best Reusable Coffee Cups of 2022 to Keep your Morning Routine Green

It’s estimated that 50 billion paper coffee cups with lids are thrown away annually in the United States. An extremely tiny portion of these cups is recycled since the polyethylene lining inside these cups has to be taken out in order for the paper cup itself to be recycled. Switching to a reusable coffee cup can dramatically decrease the amount of waste you produce, especially if you frequently go to your local coffee shop. Some coffee shops even offer discounts for those who bring their own reusable coffee cup. In this post, we will list the top 6 reusable coffee cups for your morning routine!

The climate is changing, and it’s time to prepare for the impacts

For 22 years, we’ve helped corporations and government agencies analyze the impacts of their projects on the environment.

And after more than two decades of reading and writing reports about water, air, wildlife, fish, plants, and more, we noticed something peculiar and undeniable: the environment is rapidly changing.

Average river temperatures are increasing, and flows are decreasing–a lot. Species that rely on snow cover are being forced into higher elevations to survive. Trees are dying from drought, insects, and disease.

And the once rare mega-fire (fire larger than 100,000 acres) has been replaced by a demon that didn’t exist before 2020–the giga-fire (fire larger than 1,000,000 acres).

As we watched the environment decline around us, it became clear that writing more reports wouldn’t be enough.

We had to do something different if we wanted to make a lasting difference.

We are scientists, engineers, and communicators who are passionate about the environment and committed to making a difference. And we knew we needed to do more than regurgitate what climate scientists have been warning us for decades.

We needed to help you prepare for the impending effects — effects we are already experiencing.

In our blog, you will learn how to:

  • Protect your home and family from increasing temperatures, more frequent and severe storms, and wildfire
  • Protect your health from increasing temperatures and insects
  • Protect your food supply during emergencies and from potential supply chain failures
  • Protect your finances, including investments and insurance
  • Protect your business and employees

“Climate change is sometimes misunderstood as being about changes in the weather. In reality, it is about changes in our very way of life.”

~Paul Polman
