Helping save the planet doesn’t mean you need to shell out the big bucks. Sustainability can be quite affordable and that’s what makes it such a great lifestyle choice — all it can take is a reusable coffee cup even. This is why we at IOco Gift Designers offer only the best quality products — we believe you can help save the environment while getting great value for your money. Being eco-friendly is the way to go and we are here to help you transition your way into a healthy, sustainable lifestyle today with our diverse range of eco-friendly products and gift ideas.
Now, we know exactly what you’re thinking. “Saving the planet is important and all, but how can I do that while saving money?”
Contrary to popular belief, it’s always a lot more cost-effective to invest in reusable products rather than opting for single-use disposable items. Single-use items like plastic cups and bottles may seem like a cheaper and perhaps more convenient alternative at the time. However, continuously using tens, if not hundreds of these items, in a year creates a significant impact on both the environment, as well as your wallet. Did you also know that on average, the majority of plastic waste comes from plastic water bottles, cups, lids, and disposable cutlery? Taking that extra effort and bringing your own reusable coffee mug to the shop or carrying your own personal glass water bottle can really make a big difference.
Single-use products, like plastic and paper cups, need to be disposed of after one or two uses as they are not very robust. They can even start to break apart while you’re still using them! This is why it is always a smart choice to invest in higher quality products that are designed to last. That way, you get better value for money and a more pleasant product experience. At IOco Gift Designers, our quality products have been specifically designed to cater to all your needs without succumbing to wear and tear.
Environmentally friendly products, like cups and bottles, also often come with other benefits too. For starters, reusable coffee cups with lids can help keep your coffee warm as they have insulating properties. Studies show that coffee even tends to taste better in reusable cups since there is no plastic residue which can be present in disposable cups. The same goes for glass water bottles as water tastes a lot fresher and cleaner in these when compared to plastic bottles. A better drinking experience can mean you waste less resources, whether it’s heating up your coffee again in the microwave or pouring out your water bottle and refilling it because the water tastes yucky.
Furthermore, using reusable coffee mugs, cups and glass water bottles can help avoid certain BPA-related health risks that come with prolonged exposure to plastic alternatives. It’s a win-win situation for both you, as well as the planet!
In the long run, you end up saving more money by making a one-time investment in reusable products like the ones we sell at IOco Gift Designers. Yet, that’s not even the best part: all our reusable and eco-friendly gifts are available at super affordable prices! We have a huge range of reusable cups, bottles, travel cutlery and many more exciting products available in different colours, sizes and styles for you to choose from.
