A few weeks ago, I shared with you a new addiction I have… iced coffee. More than iced coffee though, I drink a ton of water. I drink more water than is even necessary for a pregnant woman but I do love it. What I love most though, is drinking out of cups that make me smile. Don’t judge me. I like to have nice, sturdy, well-made cups to drink out of. My husband still drinks hot coffee, even though the temperature outside is smoldering so he enjoys both cold and hot cups to use everyday.
Smart Planet was founded in 1995. For more than 15 years, it has been Smart Planet’s mission to help you live in our planet earth with our Eco-friendly household items.
Our Smart Plastic products are made from low density plastic with an EcoPure additive. The most “green” solution available for reusable cups. The additive creates an accelerated biodegradable cycle which occurs in common landfills or compost facilities. The EcoPure additive that makes this possible is 100% organic, non-starch based and non-destructive to the environment. The biodegradable plastic is made to last for years under regular use and will only start to biodegrade once disposed of.
I love the great designs of the Smart Planet cups we received. I have been using them daily since we received them. My only complaint is that the cups are not dishwasher safe. We have found that you can put the cup in the dishwasher but both the lid and straw need to be handwashed. Please know that Smart Planet does not suggest using the dishwasher at all and this is something we are doing. With 5 people in the house, we cut (dishwashing) corners whenever possible.
We are using our cold cups much more frequently right now than the hot cups. I use them for water and my beloved iced coffee and my husband uses them for iced coffee every morning. The straws are great because they won’t pull completely out of the cup. They are strong and sturdy straws so there is no need to worry about them breaking or bending. They cups are also double-insulated and really do keep your cold drinks cold. I fill my cup up with ice, add my drink, and it will stay cold (or the ice won’t melt all the way) for hours. It is a great feature!
My favorite cup out of them all is the 16oz cold eco Swirly cup.
I received the blue cup and it is great. It is cute to carry around with me and fits into a cup holder in my van with no problems.
My husband’s favorite cup is the eco Cold Drink Cup. He likes the simple design that keeps his drinks cold.
My kids also have a favorite cup. They like the eco Curly Cup. Of course they like it because of how it looks. This is not a great cup if you want to use a lot of ice though because the straw takes up so much extra space. I have also found that, when you drink out of the straw, you need to be careful to ensure a little doesn’t come out when you are finished. I guess that the liquid in the straw takes longer to go down and it “spits” a bit.
I would recommend Smart Planet Cold and Hot cups to anyone looking for a great, well-made, eco-friendly way to drink their liquids, no matter what kind of liquid it may be. You can be the envy of all your friends and coworkers when you walk in with these super cute cups! The cups pictured above all range from $7 to $8 each. These are also just the tip of the iceberg as far as what Smart Planet offers. They have so many great looking cups that, I am sure, work great to keep your liquids hot or cold!
Included in the great items that Smart Planet has are stainless steel bottles! I know you have seen (or you may be a lucky owner of) these great bottles. I know my son has some friends that used them on the sports field. I have seen moms and dads walking or jogging with them. They seem to be great bottles. And, thanks to Smart Planet, I am able to give two away! One winner will receive the following two stainless steel bottles: the EC-9 in silver and the EC-9DS in red.
