Starbucks Insulated Cups
So a little bluebird told me that Starbucks will be releasing their super hot, always a sellout plastic insulated cups in the US market on 4 May.
I first got the double-walled insulated, PBA-free grande sized cup a few summers ago, and I must say that it is one of the most fabulous cups I've ever (re)used. Not just because Starbucks gives you a discount every time you use it, but because it keeps your drinks cold, requires less ice, and since it's double-walled, it doesn't sweat with condensation.
Then last summer I bought the larger Venti size - and love it equally as the original grande version.
The grande and venti plastic cups are a little smaller than their disposable doubles, but don't worry - the guidelines on the side of the reusable versions are altered, as they require less ice (since they insulate and stay cooler longer). So the amount of beverage you get from the reusable cup is just the same as the disposable cup.
Reduce. Reuse. Refresh.
