Benefits of Drink Tumblers
There are plenty more benefits to using a tumbler, so let's dive in!
1. Tumblers are a more sustainable alternative to plastic single use water bottles. Habits of waste reports that 481.6 BILLION water bottles are used in a single year, resulting in obscene levels of pollution. For this reason, using any reusable tumbler or water bottle is a great idea, but water bottles have some lesser known downsides.
2. Tumblers are more sanitary than reusable plastic water bottles. Many plastics contain BPA, a toxic chemical that can have negative effects on your health, so you should always be sure to check the BPA levels before purchasing a plastic water bottle.
3. Plastic and other common water bottle materials can also grow harmful bacterias if not properly cleaned. BrüMate tumblers are made with stainless steel, which creates a far less friendly environment for bacteria to grow.
4. Tumblers are simply one of the most convenient drink containers. They are incredibly versatile so you can put almost any beverage in them, from water to hot toddies!
5. Whatever beverage you choose, you won’t have to worry about temperature changes. Tumblers are great insulators so your drink won’t cool quickly or become diluted.
