Babysugar isn't alone when she says caffeine is her drug of choice because about 73 percent of lilsugar readers say they rely on the stimulant to keep up with their tots. After using hundreds (or thousands!) of paper cups for my tea fix I realized it was time to settle on a more Eco-conscious reusable travel mug that won't spill or break. I did a little research, and apparently Americans consume more than 16 billion paper cups every year. Yes, it's definitely time for an alternative.
Good thing the market is with me. This I am not a paper cup... mug ($20) is the hipster answer to a paper-free coffee fix, but there are many options out there. The key is to find a mug that can be microwaved and is dishwasher safe (many of the ones I liked at the health food store weren't) and has a top that won't runneth over on to your outfit, child or car interior.
