We’re always ones to act whenever we hear of a new way we can help; the planet, animals, and each other, and we want to share with you some of the most recent changes we’ve made to our life. Whether habits or actual products new on the market, it’s important to keep learning and keep evolving!
Here are a few things – actions, products and habit changes we can recommend starting this summer!
We always have reusable cups, for both cold and hot drinks, to take with us to coffee shops, hiking, camping or whatever, but never have we had a reusable cup we prefer for everything!
When we found Pirani Insulated Tumblers I didn’t expect much originality. I’ve owned dozens of reusable cups – but through looks, design and materials it’s proven to be better than all my other insulated cups by far. Even the texture and weight of the cup feels quality. It keeps both drinks and food either cold or hot for hours, and not a drip is spilled on the roughest of mountain roads. The seal around the mouth is solid, something I didn’t expect from a threadless lid that just pushes on and pulls off – but possibly most surprising to me is that the completely normal looking closable flap that covers the mouth piece doesn’t splash and leak the entire drive. I’m usually sipping up leaks from around the edge of my cups after a rough drive or constantly having to unblock the little breather hole (that tiny extra one) to get anything out of them. It’s such a good seal in fact that sometimes you have to open the mouth flap to release pressure before taking off the entire lid. These are definitely built for camping, hiking, or anything outdoors.
Most recently, we went on a long drive in search of unpopular trails to hike, like we do most weekends, and I’ve grown so tired of gluten free bread sandwiches that we’ve started making pho. We learned after our first attempt at transporting this delicious soup that the pho noodles we use expand by a lot over a couple hours, AND we learned (through luck) that this cup can handle it! I left an inch of space from the top and by the time we ate, a few hours later, there was almost no broth, just piping hot noodles, tempeh and veggies. It was the perfect picnic meal, and up against a lunch box thermos with a 2 inch thread, the Pirani held its own. The inside is stainless steel so I don’t worry about stains or embedded smells like with some of my cups.
Now that some places are allowing personal cups again it’s great to take with you anywhere, coffee shops, the bar – but if you can’t yet, definitely use it around the house and for road trips.
On another note, this cup is not just a cup and its design is not as it is just for kicks. Each line represents an amount of liquid, making this cup very versatile for all kinds of drinks and personal concoctions. It’s BPA Free, dishwasher safe and keeps your cold drinks cold for 12 hours and hot things hot for 6. The company has made it their mission to end single use cups. So many companies are all talk and offer only the bare minimum in quality on top of that. Pirani walks the walk.
This cup is definitely great for partying outdoors, taking to a friends, and having a sustainable BBQ – no more disposable cups or plates, k? I know we all hate doing dishes but, it’s not worth throwing more plastic in the Ocean to avoid it, is it? No. I also think Pirani makes for some great, REI level, camping equipment, for hot lunches on hikes, cold drinks by the campfire, I can’t wait to go camping with it!
Pirani also contributes profits to organizations who work towards conservation with their #ContributeSustainably cups – Definitely a great company and worth every penny, for yourself and the planet!
