Places to get discounts if you bring your own hot drink cup/mug/flask etc

Places to get discounts if you bring your own hot drink cup/mug/flask etc

With the average disposable coffee cup supposedly taking as long as 50 years to fully break down in a landfill and it being suggested that close to 2.5 billion of them are tossed away every year, it’s time we all do something about it, so we’ve collated all the locations where you can save money on your hot drinks by bringing your own mug/cup/flask etc.

What are the best mugs/flasks to buy?

  1. KeepCups

Should I just try and persuade my boss / my other half to buy a decent coffee machine instead?

The short answer is probably but it will depend on the amount of coffee/hot drinks you drink on average per week, whilst studies show coffee improves productivity at work and a Harvard study showed a 20% lower risk of being depressed for those drinking 5+ cups a day 1, I’m sure we can all agree that cutting down on your intake and swapping to water probably is something we all should be considering…

These coffee machines are the best bang for your £.
