-CLOSED- EcoMom Review & Giveaway: Eco Cup Ceramic Hot Drink Cup


Can I just say that I <3 EcoMom. I love shopping from the EcoMom website and I know that whatever I buy there is safe for my home and my family. 

EcoMom recently sent me the Eco Cup Ceramic Hot Drink Cup to review and I just l-o-v-e it! My hubby's reaction was so funny when I opened the package from EcoMom- I was just pulling it out from the wrapping and my hubby got so excited and burst out with, "You got me a re-usable ceramic mug?!? How did you know I've wanting one for so long! That's awesome! Is it my Christmas present?" Poor hubby. I had to confess that I didn't know that he had been wanting one and that it wasn't his Christmas present, that it was for a review! Well, either way, he is happy that we have one now!

Meet the Eco Cup:
Hello. I am the Eco Cup. I'm Not a Paper Cup. I am a single-walled (non-thermal) porcelain cup with a silicone lid and sleeve. I hold approximately 16oz and come with a brown or white sleeve. I am 3.5" in diameter and 6" tall. I am also microwave and dishwasher safe.

I take my Eco Cup with me everywhere! Seriously, I even use it in the house. I am notorious for pouring my first cup of coffee and being so pre-occupied with little man for so long that I forget to drink my coffee. (Bad mommy, I know... I mean, I can barely function without coffee) So, then when I sit down to drink my coffee, it's cold. Ewwy. Cold coffee is not yummy. Lately, I've been putting my morning coffee in the Eco Cup Ceramic Hot Drink Cup and the lid keeps it much hotter for longer! Yay! No more cold coffee! It is also super easy to take along in the car or to the park (it fits perfectly in my strollers cup holder) and it is so nice to have a reusable mug to take to the coffee shop!
The perfect "going to the park" accessory!
Now, one thing I will say about the mug. It has a warning on it to not pick up the mug when it is full of a hot drink without the sleeve on it. They are 100% correct. The ceramic mug gets very hot! So you will want to make sure that you put it on before putting your hot drink in it. 
Also, since it isn't seal-able, you will want to be careful that your little ones don't knock it over or reach for it to grab it. Little man is notorious for trying to grab mommy's coffee cup and sometimes it's like we're playing the keep-away game.

I love that EcoMom is constantly introducing new products to their site. I feel good about shopping there because I know they sell safe, eco-friendly and high-quality products. I also love the things that I can learn from their site! Here are some other fun tid-bits about the EcoMom site:
  •  When you spend $50 at EcoMom, you get FREE shipping!
  • EcoMom has amazing daily deals at deep discounts. You can sign up for the daily deal here.
  • They also have a blog that has more information on green products and advice, parenting tips, ideas and crafts.
Overall, I love my new Eco Cup. It sits right next to my coffee maker so I can use it every day. I love having it to use at coffee shops rather than a paper cup that gets thrown away, because every little bit helps! 

Interested in picking up a treat for yourself? Or do you have someone in mind who you know would love this mug? Or perhaps your New Year's resolution is to add some new "green" habits to your life? You can BUY the Eco Cup Ceramic Hot Drink Cup for $9.99 at EcoMom.
