Cute Tumblers That Will Keep You Hydrated and Environmentally Woke This Summer

Say Goodbye to Single-Use Straws

ICYMI, disposable plastic straws are out. They're increasingly being banned by restaurants, airlines, sports arenas, and entire cities—and for good reason. Environmentalists say that around 500 million single-use plastic straws are discarded per day across the nation. Since they don't degrade naturally, the plastic ends up settling in landfills and polluting the world's beaches and oceans and harming wildlife. In fact, researchers estimate that at the rate we're polluting, there will be more plastic in the ocean by weight than fish by 2050—and plastic straws are a top offender. Yikes.

Beyond forgoing that single-use drinking straw when possible and opting for a stainless steel alternative (you might get some strange looks the first time you pull one out of your purse, but we promise, this BYOS trend is catching on!), you can also switch to a plastic tumbler. They're a fun way to stay hydrated and indulge in the ~luxury~ of drinking out of a (reusable) straw, without the side of guilt. 

If we haven't convinced you yet, these cute tumblers—perfect for sipping H20 at your desk or an adult beverage poolside—will do the trick.
