The Aladdin Sustain 16 oz. travel mug is a little piece of plastic heaven. After going through so many travel mugs for years, not quite finding one I truly like 100%, Aladdin has come up with all the right qualities for around $10.00.
The travel mug is a comfortable size while in hand. With a fine texture yet soft feel, the plastic is not slippery, so reaching for a sip of coffee or tea while driving doesn’t seem impossible. The travel mug fits nicely into a narrow cup holder, yet doesn’t seem lost in a larger holder. The drink guard on the top can be pushed to the side with a finger or two, and can be pushed back just as easily.
Recycle, recycle, recycle. I am always practicing recycling at home and also search for products that practice it in production. It’s even better if a product can easily be recycled after it’s life of use. Aladdin uses 100% recycled food grade polypropylene with 25 % post-consumer content. The travel mug itself is recyclable with a plastics number of “5.” The slogan on the mug label is quite fitting: Use it. Love it. Recycle it. Begin again.
On top of all of this, the Aladdin mug can be cleaned in the dishwasher AND is microwaveable! This product is truly a keeper for being user friendly, environmentally friendly, and home friendly.
There is currently one Aladdin Sustain travel mug in the house (since being purchased just six days ago), and soon there will be two. I am curious to see how durable the travel mug is and the duration of time it will be reliable. But when the time does come to get a new Aladdin mug, I know I can toss the old one into the recycling bin on my way to the store.
