HYDRO FLASK: LET'S DISPOSE OF DISPOSABLE COFFEE CUPS


Hydro Flask

Each year the equivalent of 70 disposable coffee cups per person are manufactured around the world. Altogether, that adds up to half a trillion cups. With just one in 400 of these being recycled in the UK, most are ending up in landfill and taking years to decompose.

 

Investing in an insulated flask, such as a Hydro Flask, enables you to enjoy your coffee guilt-free during the morning commute. Many of the big coffee shops have cottoned on to this, including Starbucks, Costa and Pret a Manger, and now offer up to 50p off the price of your coffee in exchange for filling up your flask instead of a disposable cup.

 

And it’s not just good for the environment, it’s good for your wallet too. By saving 50p per weekday morning, you’ll pay off the cost of a 12oz Hydro Flask in less than two months. You’ll also save 38 disposable coffee cups from landfill, or 235 every year.

 

So, grab a seat on the train, if you can, and enjoy a virtuous coffee whilst reading our nine other ways to get the best out of your Hydro Flask. 

No matter what your choice of brew is, the Hydro Flask has you covered. 

1. Saviour of the school run

Fill up your flask instead of your favourite mug in the morning. When you get back from the school drop off your tea or coffee will be toasty warm, and you can enjoy a quiet cuppa before the madness of the rest of the day begins. 

2. Warm up the sidelines

Spend your weekend mornings cheering on the kids as they battle on the football pitch? Take a Hydro Flask of coffee with you to combat the cold, early start. The flip lid is glove-friendly for frosty starts. And even if there’s extra time, your drink will stay hot for up to six hours. 

3. A caffeinated cooling off

Prefer your coffee icy cold on a summer’s morning? Hydro Flask keeps cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours. Switch to an iced latte or mocha made at home or bought from a barista. 

4. Time for tea

More of a tea drinker? Rest mid-ramble with a refreshing brew, or even sip on the go because Hydro Flask’s powder coating ensures a secure, sweat-free grip. And it’ll still be hot up to 12 hours later with Hydro Flask’s 16 and 20-ounce sizes. 

5. Campsite comfort

Replace lost sugars around the campfire after time spent putting up your tent with a delicious hot chocolate. Just don’t forget the marshmallows to accompany it!     

The Hydro Flask is the perfect partner for your camping trip as your drink stays hot for up to 6 hours.

6. Hot honey and lemon

Feeling a little under the weather but can’t take the day off? Fill your Hydro Flask with hot honey and lemon to keep the spirits up and the sore throat at bay. 

7. Smooth drinker

Enjoy a refreshing smoothie mid-afternoon to keep the post-lunch slump at bay. Hydro Flask’s pro-grade stainless steel design means it won’t retain or transfer flavours. So even if you had a coffee that morning you’ll still be able to enjoy a taint free strawberry and banana smoothie later.

8. Quick refuel

Fed up with paying a premium for a tea bag on the plane? Take your Hydro Flask and fill it up in duty-free before you board. And even if you have to wait in line, laden down with hand luggage, Hydro Flask’s one handed opening flip lid means you’ll still able to enjoy a sip or two. 

9. Glug the glühwein

Enjoy a slug of something warming after a day on the slopes? Fill your Hydro Flask with mulled wine, glühwein, vin chaud or whichever name you like to give it and relax in the après ski atmosphere. Again, Hydro Flask’s Coffee Flask keeps drinks hot up to six hours later, so it won’t matter if you fancy one extra run.
