HOW TO GET STARTED

All tumblers will eventually wear out and need to be disposed of. Durable glass tumblers can be infinitely recycled. Most plastic tumblers will end up in landfills or in waterways. Glass tumblers are also better at serving many dishwasher cycles and have little chance of impacting microplastics into your beverages. Finally, glass tumblers are much more aesthetically pleasing.

EMBRACE

  1. Glass is aesthetically appealing
  2. Glass is infinitely recyclable and can be recycled by almost any municipal recycling service
  3. Glass tumblers don't have any notable risk of transferring microplastics to your beverages

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Durable plastic tumblers are better than single-use plastic cups, but they eventually end up in landfills when they break or start to leak
  2. Plastic tumblers may not have BPA but other petrochemicals may still be present
  3. Plastic tumblers are less aesthetically appealing and may not have the longevity of durable glass through many dishwasher cycles
