Water Bottles / Travel Mugs

TK:ARO Glass Water Bottle

That’s right, a glass water bottle that is reusable, recyclable, transportable and dishwasher safe. But what about the glass, hmm? Afraid it’ll break? As long as you keep it from “radical falls” it should be perfectly fine. (On the Tkaro website there’s also an engraved option if you want it customized; price is just slightly higher at $37.95.)

Equivalent to 2 cups or 500mL.
Do not place in freezer or microwave. Not suitable for hot beverages.

Vapur Bottle

The Vapur Bottle is a collapsible water bottle that folds flat when emptied. Perfect for traveling and commuting, reasonably priced too. I’m curious to see how durable it is and how well it stands up on its own.� It’s dishwasher safe, comes with a carabiner for carrying, freezable, and has a writable text area for personalization.

Capacity: 16 oz (473 ml)
Material: Ultra-durable BPA-Free polymer
Colors: green, pink, blue, smoke, purple.

Eco Cup

From the same company that brought you the “I Am Not A Paper Cup” comes the Eco Cup. It’s the same sort of idea except it’s a single-walled (non-thermal) porcelain cup with silicone lid and sleeve to keep your fingers safe.

Stop using disposable cups for your coffee! Great for the whole office, our Eco-Cup is a porcelain cup with silicone lid and heat-protective sleeve.
The silcone lid can withstand temperatures of up to 230 degrees celsius (446 F) and helps keep hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold.
The porcelain Eco Cup holds approximately 450ml of your favourite beverage and the silicone sleeve will ensure your fingers don’t get burnt whilst enjoying your drink.

Colour: white porcelain cup with white or brown sleeve (sleeve colour is random)
Care: microwave and dishwasher safe

Tota Coffee Carrier

Coffee schleppers rejoice: you now have a better option for getting those lattes to the office. No more awkward paper trays to balance (or recycle), no more coffee spilt on your shirt/pants/bag/briefcase, no more ridiculing or menial tasks…um, maybe no guarantees on that last part.

Carrying more than one cup can be difficult and trays are unstable when walking and only designed to be used a few times. The Tota lets you carry up to 8 cups (2 units in each hand) safely with room for stirrers or sugar sachets. The comfy handle is a nice touch and the Tota can hold large or small cups. Obviously its built to last, great for those daily office runs to your favourite local cafe!

Thermo Water Flask

Here’s a sleek alternative to plastic water bottles:

The water flask is a true double-walled thermo flask of dishwasher-proof stainless steel. The screw-on top and strap, however, must be washed by hand.
The Eva Solo water flask is available both in matte and polished stainless steel, and the lid features a smart strap so you can carry the flask around your wrist. The matte thermos water flask has a black strap, while the polished flask has a red strap.

Kor’s Hydration Veesel

Hmm, I think this is the prettiest water bottle I’ve ever seen.

The streamlined bottles are totally free of bisphenol-A (BPA), the toxic leach in the ubiquitous polycarbonate bottles, thanks to a specially formulated compound called Eastman Tritan™. Safety first, indeed. But, it’s simply, the best-looking water bottle on the market. We love the crystal clear shell, inspired by the organic beauty of blown glass. The “no-worry cap” swivels open at the hinge with a touch of the button, and a special disk inside the top allows you to slip in a message or image to motivate or amuse you with each gulp. The wide mouth is large enough for ice cubes, while designed to minimize splashing. The integrated handle allows for comfy carrying. Made in North America.

Knitted Coffee Sleeve

I have my doubts on how likely I would be to hang on to a coffee sleeve, but I can’t argue with making your coffee or tea to-go a little more special by using this instead of a cardboard one. It’s a cute idea.

“cotton cable knit coffee sleeve, hand knit by artist Jacqueline Dufresne.”

Cardboard Ceramic Cup

Along the same lines of the “I Am Not a Paper Cup”, this cup gives you the look of a to-go cup in sturdy ceramic.

Now you can have your art and drink it too with Michel Harvey’s porcelain interpretation of a to-go cup. With careful attention to detail, Harvey has captured the uniformity of the ridged cardboard sleeve that has become an iconic part of our morning coffee routine. Handmade in Canada.

MATERIALS: ceramic
NOTE: dishwasher safe
SIZE: 3″ dia. x 4 1/2″ H; 8 OZ

Lucky Flask

This is a rather unique flask- perfect as a gift for anyone who appreciates a tall tale or a warm drink.

“At 3.5″ x 4.5″ x 1″ (7,5 x 11,5 x 2,5 cm) it holds enough Glenmorangie to warm your heart on a cold winter day…”

Urban Cup Holder

It’s not often that a product forays into uncharted territory- yet that’s what this does for the urban setting. Claim that post for your own, I say.

“The aim of the urban cup holder is to encourage people to reinterpret street settings and claim them as their territory, instead of just using them as a means of passage from A to B. The cup holder is easily clamped with one hand to posts in the street, then used as a coat/bag/umbrella hanger and a drink holder. In turn, giving the user a feeling of control and creating a more personal space, a temporary territory.”
