Want some plastic in your morning coffee?
Or maybe not.
Hot liquids will cause chemicals from a Styrofoam or plastic cup to leach out. So unless you want chemicals along with your caffeine, it is best to choose another option.
Try one of these solutions:
- Use a paper cup
- Ask for a real mug if you are enjoying your coffee at the store
- Invest in a stainless steel (unlined) or ceramic travel mug
Before you buy a travel mug, look inside. Many mugs are ceramic or steel on the outside, but plastic on the inside.
