Are you struggling to choose between an Insulated coffee cup or a reusable coffee cup?
Insulated cups keep the coffee hot for a longer period compared to the reusable cups. Insulated mugs and cups keep the coffee hot or cold for longer period by simply insulating the inner contents of the mug from the outside, this is made possible with a single mold double wall design. When the space between the walls of insulated mug is vacuumed there are molecules to transfer the heat from inside to outside and vice versa.
Reusable cups are designed to minimize the use of single use plastic cups. Reusable mugs serve best for the coffee lovers who prefers to drink coffee on a quicker pace, as reusable cups are not always insulated it may not fit the need of slow coffee drinkers.
Which reusable cup is travel friendly?
Well both the insulated cups and reusable cups are travel and environment friendly.

Just the reusable cups without insulation do exactly the same except they are not insulated, reusable cups will not keep your coffee hot for longer time.
