So you know how when you order something and you are really excited when you get it…. and then you use it. I have been on this mission to reduce one-time-use plastic in my life and ordered this Stojo collapsing coffee cup for my weekly coffee excursions. I was really disappointed.
First - It came in a plastic bag. “Hmmm.” thought I. “I guess it’s only one bag. I need to think of all the plastic coffee cup lids I will be saving”. My husband was also kind enough to point out that it was made of plastic. But I had some smart things to say about that as well.
Next - Troubles started when I poured my morning matcha tea and pushed on the lid slightly while closing it. Bunch of it came spilling out the top (the cup is soft).
Then I got into my car (still wanting really badly to like it and overlook the first inconvenience when I realized my tea was now cold (it only had been 10min). I collected all of my optimism, smiled and practiced self-deception but the cup really soon brought me back to reality when I washed it and tried to collapse it back to put it in my bag. No joke, it took me a couple tries to get it to collapse. Needless to say, it’s going back :(
HELLO Stojo! GOODBYE disposable cups! Sip, stow and go! Americans throw away 58 billion disposable cups each year. Reusable cups help reduce waste, but only to the extent people choose to use them. When you live on the go, adding a bulky travel mug to the equation isn't always an option. All too often, we choose the convenience of a disposable cup over doing the right thing for the planet. The Stojo Pocket Cup (fake Smash Cup) provides a better way. Both reusable and convenient, the ultra portable Stojo Pocket Cup is the world's only leak-proof reusable cup that fits in any pocket, purse, glove compartment, backpack or laptop bag. It's always there when you need it. When you're done with your drink, simply collapse the cup, seal the lid, stow and go.
