In 2022, we are getting back into travelling here, there and everywhere, and what better way to do it than with your bamboo travel mug? By using a reusable travel mug you can save up to £130 a year at your favourite coffee shop! – What’s not to love about that. Drinking tea or coffee from your mug on the tube or in the car can not only keep it warm, but also helps to reduce needless waste. Let’s take a look at the range of bamboo coffee mugs out there so you can make the sustainable swap today.
Why buy a bamboo travel mug?
Naturally, the main advantage of bamboo is that it is one of the best renewable materials in the world. It is natural and one of the fastest-growing plants worldwide without pesticides and insecticides. The most important thing to know is that bamboo is a biodegradable material and decomposes quickly. It takes only 4 to 6 months to decompose completely. Using and reusing biodegradable bamboo cups is a wonderful way to reduce waste on a weekly basis.
Highly durable and resistant
These mugs are reliable and highly durable because of their material. We all dread that break or crack when we drop our cups on the floor. With bamboo mugs, you don’t have to worry about it so much. They are also suitable for children because of this! This factor makes them a strong competitor to ceramic or porcelain mugs as although we consider them great alternatives to single-use cups, they can break more easily.
Easy to care for
Bamboo mugs are easy to wash, food safe and do not absorb odours or flavours. Just make sure you dry them properly before storing them, as keeping the bamboo fibres humid could deteriorate the bamboo and negatively affect its durability.
Now that you know the benefits, you may already be googling the best places to find your bamboo cup. Luckily we’ve already compiled a list of the best bamboo travel mugs to get you started:
At Wearth, you can find these two cups from the brand WAKEcup. Elegantly designed showcasing the natural texture of bamboo, these cups will be your perfect ally for a zero waste living.
The large version is ideal for American coffee lovers or those who need a good caffeine dose for a long journey. It allows your coffee to stay hot for hours so you can enjoy it throughout the morning. But the best thing is that if you are a cold drinks lover it will also keep them chilled too.
With its ergonomic and comfortable design, this mug is an excellent choice to have on your desk and enjoy a good coffee or tea. In addition, 10% of profits from WAKEcup products goes directly to their eco partners, The Marine Conservation Society and Plastic Oceans. Two charities working to raise awareness and eliminate plastic in the oceans.

Bamboo, as we’ve previous mentioned, is a super sustainable material. So let’s take a look at some more innovative products making use of it!

This eco-friendly and waterproof soap dish is protected with a plant-based non-toxic lacquer, making it both durable and sustainable.
The material in which we store our food is also relevant, as we don’t want it to transmit any harmful toxins to our meals. With this lunchbox by Emilie O’Connor you won’t have to worry about that.
