Last Sunday my wife and I decided to meet the tenant in our house to send him the six months rental contract somewhere in San Francisco Del Monte.
After doing so, we had a short visit to the nearest mall in the place which is the SM City Fairview. We do window shopping at the department store to check some stuff for my son’s exchange gift for their Christmas party at school. What caught my attention is the acrylic tumbler with straw selling for 120 pesos per piece.
We do not have a plan of buying it at first, but since my son always drinks milk in a mug using a straw, we decided to get one. For us, the tumbler is a good buy since my son loves to use it and his milk intake has increased.
I am not sure if other SM Malls also offer the same tumbler with straw, but if you decided to buy and somehow cannot find one, local clothing company BENCH sells the same stuff at a very affordable price.
What are the Advantages of Getting a Tumbler?
Initially, I don’t appreciate buying a drinking tumbler because I can always buy bottled water in a convenience store. But after doing some research, choosing the former, enables me to help protect the environment. Here are some of the advantages of using the tumbler instead of buying bottled drinks every so often.
Keep the temperature of fluids longer
Whether you want your drinks to be cold or warm. Tumblers can help keep the temperature of your drinking liquids longer. Double-wall tumblers can act as insulation between the temperature of drinking fluids and the temperature of the atmosphere. There is a Physics principle involved in the design of this type of tumbler.
To give you a bird’s eye view, the gap between the two walls is a vacuum which means no air or any material at all. This prevents heat transfer and/or absorption between the liquid inside the tumbler and the temperature in the atmosphere.
According to WebMD, most water bottle makers intended their products for single use only. Of course, there are exemptions. On the other hand, tumblers are highly reusable. You can reuse it for months or even years as long as it doesn’t leak or it is not broken.
Helps Protect the Environment
Since Acrylic tumblers are reusable, in some way you protect the environment by not adding unnecessary plastic rubbish to the environment once in a while. Imagine one million people using reusable drinking bottles. This means that millions of single-use drinking plastic bottles will not end up in landfills.
Acrylic Tumblers are Highly Portable
This feature depends on the design of the tumbler. There are tumblers that come with a cover and straw which makes them spill-proof. Some designs also have provisions for straps or have straps. This makes the tumbler highly portable. All you need to do is strap it at the back of your bag or make it like a sling bag and you are good to go.
Tumblers are Often Trendy
Unlike before when tumblers usually come in plain boring colors. The latest designs of tumblers are super trendy. There are transparent designs that allow you to see what’s inside the container. It also comes in different colors, with glitters, or icy effects. The newest designs of tumblers change the colors of their outer wall depending on the temperature of the liquid inside them.
Tumblers are Easy to Clean
Because tumblers usually have a wide opening, you can clean them easily. You only need the usual sponge to clean its inner base. Doing so prevents the residue of your previous drinks to get stuck on the bottom of the tumbler.
*There you have it guys! I hope after reading about the advantages of using tumblers. I was able to persuade you to buy one for yourself. Let us all protect the environment.
