In recent years, compared to plastic and glass water cups, stainless steel coffee mugs have become more and more popular. The specific reasons why people choose stainless steel mugs vary widely, but its heat preservation performance must be one of the reasons why people buy it. Most stainless steel thermos mugs can keep cold for 24 hours and keep warm for 12 hours, and are suitable for use in any season of the year. But when choosing reusable water cups, many people are easy to fall into selection difficulties, or do not understand why they should give up using disposable plastic water bottles.

So, today I will introduce to you, why choose the stainless steel mugs?

  • Compared with the recyclable paper cup, is the reusable stainless steel thermos mug more eco-friendly?

Considering the required energy and labor input, stainless Steel has higher manufacture costs and emits more carbon. However, from the perspective of its longevity, it will not become part of the waste cycle after one use. Thereby reduce the lifetime pollution footprint in its manufacture alone. On the other hand, although the production of recyclable paper cup requires less energy, they need to be processed before they can be added to the waste cycle. To be part of the waste cycle, paper cups need to be dragged to a treatment facility for waste sorting. It is then towed to an appropriate recycling facility, and finally remanufactured and distributed. Combined, these processes require more input and effort than a stainless steel mug does. It will take more than a gallon to process a paper cup into new paper than clean a 16 oz stainless steel thermos mug.

The first “R” of the three recycled “R”s tells us to reduce waste, and the second “R” tells us to reuse as much as possible. It is therefore that Steel is actually superior to recyclable paper. Steel meets all three of the “R”s of Recycling, does not need to be disposed of in the waste stream, is 100% reusable, and is often made from scrap metals recycling.

The recycling of a paper cup is actually a very long process. In fact, we don’t have the time to responsibly wait for the paper cup to be recycled before drinking another cup. So in place of this, more trees would be felled to make replacement cups. On the other hand, as long as you love and care for your stainless steel mug, it could survive with you for a lifetime.

Specifically, about environmental protection, the advantages of stainless steel mugs include the following aspects.

1. Recyclable is good for the environment

In the United States alone, 1,500 disposable plastic water bottles are consumed every second. This has led to a large amount of plastic waste pollution, especially 80% of which cannot be recycled. As a result, more than 38 million plastic bottles will be transported to landfills throughout the United States.

The good news is that more and more people regard reusable stainless steel thermos mug as a substitute for plastic bottles.

Environmental protection is one of the biggest advantages of stainless steel mugs, because when the number of people using stainless steel mugs exceeds the number of plastic bottles, it also means that the fewer plastic bottles we see in landfills every year. When we use stainless steel mugs, plastic pollution is reduced; when stainless steel mugs are not used, it can be recycled.

2. Production is more energy-efficient

Over time, stainless steel mugs require less energy than plastic water bottles. At first glance, this point of view is a bit problematic. The production of stainless steel requires stainless steel materials and abrasive tools, and the engineering is huge. However, stainless steel is not a fast-moving consumer product. The service life of a vacuum flask is much longer than that of a plastic water bottle. With the extension of its service life, a stainless steel mug is indeed.

3. Sustainable use

When it comes to sustainability, the topic that cannot be avoided is the durability of the cup. To put it bluntly, how long can the cup last? Many water cup manufacturers also test the durability of water cups. Generally speaking, the service life of stainless steel thermos mugs can reach 12 years. The durability of the stainless steel vacuum flask is mainly attributed to the material. Stainless steel can withstand high impact without too many signs of wear. Coupled with the aforementioned recyclability, the stainless steel vacuum flask has become the first choice for the most sustainable lifestyle.

  • How does stainless steel thermos mug work?

Heat is lost or dissipated in 3 ways, namely conduction, convection, and radiation. Thermos stainless coffee mug attempts to minimize heat loss in the 3 form:

1.Conduction: In stainless steel thermos mug, the hot water is in contact with the stainless steel inner layer. The stainless steel inner layer is only in contact with the outer layer on the top of the bottle. So if you leave the mug on the table, the heat will be transferred to the top, and then slowly lost to the environment and the table. That is, conduction through the outer layer contacting the air and contacting the table.

2.Convection: The vacuum space between the inner and outer layers of stainless steel mug minimizes the heat loss due to convection. The vacuum is not 100% vacuum, but compared with ordinary air, it can slow down the amount of heat loss.

3.Radiation: On the surface of stainless steel, less heat is lost through radiation, because stainless steel will reflect or reflect the radiated heat back into the hot water.

  • Wide range of use

The thermos stainless coffee mug is stylish and practical, very suitable for daily drinks, tea or coffee.

Applicable to various sports occasions, like camping, travel, boating, picnics, the pool, the beach, road trips, outdoor adventure and sports event.

  • Conclusion

As a stainless steel mugs manufacturer, we can tell you, the vacuum-insulated stainless steel coffee mugs will keep your coffee the hottest, always.

This is because a double wall stainless steel mug has the vacuum layer, and the heat will not be conducted from the inside of the mug to the outside. Although the heat that the foam of the foam insulated cup can conduct is not much, it is a hundred times that of a vacuum.

Stainless steel is a popular material for coffee mugs. At the same time, stainless steel is non-porous, and like ceramics, it will not affect the taste of coffee. However, it can help your coffee keep hot for a longer period, that is why it is the first choice for travel mugs.

Plastic, paper, and foam are not recommended. Not only because most of these materials are disposable, but also affect the taste of your beverage. Plastic and polystyrene foam are porous, allowing toxins to penetrate your coffee. As for the paper cups, when it becomes soggy, it will undoubtedly cause some paper materials to end up in your drink.
