  • Non Plastic Coffee Mug ?

    Anyone on here use a coffee mug that is non plastic, including the sipping lid ? I found some stainless steel ones only to find that the lid is plastic. I know some plastics are safe, but I would like to start eliminating as much plastic as possible

    Would you consider plastics that are BPA free?
    Here's a stainless steel vacuum sealed one:

    I bought this one for my mother and she uses it constantly. The body is porcelain and the lid is silicone:

          i have a stainless steel one with a plastic lid. i don't think the coffee touches the lid that often, so it doesn't bother me. the durability is really nice.

              I also have a ceramic with a silicone lid that I got at Whole Foods. It's not as spill-proof as most travel mugs but it does the job for your basic car ride.

                I don't cook, eat or drink out of plastic anymore, BPA or not. Just makes sense that a petroleum product could cause some kind of problem with the food.

                  Reusit.com has good choices.

                  The old fashioned bell-shaped ceramic or glass mugs used with a cork would do it.

                    I am working toward a plastic free kitchen but can't find a solution for glass containers that I need to take on the go with me. Most small glass tupperware replacements still have plastics lids. Anyone find a way around this dilemma?

                      Tinfoil is all I can think of.
                      I wish I could just get my husband to stop taking his food and nuking it in PLASTIC everyday. Since we so eat all that meat I think that makes it worse (the leaching) because of the fat.

                        I save and reuse glass jars with metal lids. They are great, leak-proof and dishwasher safe and best of all NOT plastic. I have all shapes and sizes and another benefit - they are free (after you buy whatever it is that originally came in them.)

                            The Asian-style of lunch box seems to work pretty well. They are metal dishes with lids that clasp into place. They are available in the U.S., but somewhat pricey, if I recall correctly. I think I've even seen them at Whole Foods once or twice.

                              Sarah Fregoso on Everday Paleo mentioned getting some here for her kids. Not glass, but I think they're stainless, which is a really great alternative.
