Reusable Cups

In my last post I told you about our trip to Berlin.

As a family we do try to be as environmentally friendly as we can. We have cut down on a lot of our plastic use over the past few years and are conscious of where we can improve.

Knowing we had a big train journey ahead of us we packed sandwiches, home made snacks and drinks. But I have to admit I did succumb to a cuppa on the last ICE train and when hubby went to buy it he treated us to a bar of chocolate each too.

Neither the drink nor the chocolate was really needed but I wanted a hot drink and the cafe on board was only too accessible.

The drink came in the usual one use takeaway cup with a plastic lid. I felt guilty that I hadn’t brought my own cup to put the tea in.

Since we’ve been home I have been researching collapsing reusable cups to carry in my handbag in case I fancy a cup of tea while out and about again. Something like this

Or something like this maybe….

We did have one of these and I lost it oops! Please don’t tell Hubby!

But there is so much choice. Does the plastic in a reusable cup outweigh the plastic in a single use cup? Is it small enough to fit in my handbag so that it can go everywhere with me? I don’t want to end up buying something that doesn’t fit the purpose.

I’d love to know if you have any recommendations before I buy anything.

Do you use a portable reusable cup already?
