A Coffee Cup
I personally love my Chilly coffee cup but there are so many reusable coffee mugs out there! Now that we’re into the colder months, it is so handy to have one that you can keep in your bag if you ever feel like you need a warm drink. One perfect for your bag is the Stojo Collapsible Pocket Cup which can be found in a variety of different colours on ASOS! They’d make a perfect stocking filler too.
A Water Bottle
It’s really important to use a reusable water bottle if you’re an avid water drinker like me! There is nothing worse than buying a plastic water bottle every time you’re thirsty. Why not have a reusable one to keep in your bag to refill? I love the Chilly water bottles but they are a bit pricey – I’ve put one to match my coffee cup on my Christmas list. Nonetheless, there are so many alternatives out there with some really nice designs, and they keep your drinks both hot and cold; basically a water bottle and coffee mug in one!
EXTRA Thick Reusable Food Storage Bags
The best place I think to purchase these are on Amazon. When I discovered them I was so shocked, I didn’t know they existed! They’re 100% eco-friendly, BPA Free, reusable sandwich bags – perfect for your lunch or any food that you need to save and keep in the fridge. They’re super easy to clean and depending on how many you want, they range in price up to £10.99 – making it a lot easier to ditch the plastic sandwich bags and cling film.
We all know that paper straws aren’t ideal, but believe me, plastic ones are worse. My favourite alternative to plastic are the metal straws. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive due to the fear of having a metal taste with my drink, however, you can buy them with a plastic tip which completely prevents that taste and hard texture! You also receive a pipe cleaner and a cute little container to keep them in which is super handy if you’re going out.
You can buy these from pretty much anywhere now and they are so perfect for shopping. There is nothing worse than walking around the shops or town to find you’ve got nothing to carry your bits in. The foldable bags are the best because you can pop them in your bag and it doesn’t have to take up any room. You don’t have to buy plastic bags so you can save the environment, as well as saving your pennies for a nice new Chilly water bottle!
