TWO UNIQUE FINDS – TRADE YOUR DISPOSABLE CUPS FOR THE REAL DEAL, JOCO and THE MOST INCREDIBLE SWEET CALLED GATHER FROM HARBOR SWEETS

I am always discovering and discovering and was just introduced to JOCO cups…. if you know me you know that I love TEA !  I would say I know a lot about tea and I know a lot about ice cream – those are two of my hobbies in a way ! Good tea  & Good ice cream.

So when someone introduces me to a cup that will make my tea experience even more special – I am excited.

I took my JOCO cup this weekend on my roadtrip to the Outlier Inn in Upstate NY. It came to me on all our side of the road stops from Panera Bread to Starbucks and to brewing my own tea along the way….

Some info to think about :

Most of us have had a coffee or tea served in a disposable paper or Styrofoam cup

Annually, over 500 billion disposable paper, Styrofoam and single-use plastic cups are used worldwide and this figure is rapidly rising each year. Shockingly, these cups deplete natural resources, increase C02emissions and most are sent straight to landfill where they add to the global waste crises.

The JOCO community are regular crew who believe its time to give a little back. JOCO cups are made from high quality, non-porous, borosilicate glass. They are lightweight and resistant to extreme changes in temperature. Their superior durability makes them microwave and dishwasher safe. Your JOCO cup is free of all harmful chemical nasties including BPA, lead and cadmium. Glass doesn’t affect flavour so you will taste your coffee or tea, not your cup.

Thermal Sleeve

The thermal silicone sleeve keeps your coffee or tea at the optimal temperature and your hands cool.

Splash Proof and Nose-Dome Lid

Our one-way lid means no more coffee splashes when you are on the go. The specially designed nose-dome feature means no more embarrassing nose to lid collisions.

Barista Friendly

The liquid volume of our 8oz, 12oz and 16 oz glasses is measured from standard takeaway cup sizes. We keep the baristas happy and they approve your JOCO cup with thumbs up.

Coffee Cups

Here is me at Starbucks with my Green Tea in my JOCO cup ! I love how it matches my outfit too 🙂

I always like to bring little suprises on our roadtrip and the lovely company HARBOR SWEETS just sent me GATHER Chocolates to try and they are dome shaped – actually honeycomb in a way – incredibly beautiful package and the treats were delicious – but decided to bring these on our road trip – they are the newest addition to our Harbor Sweets family, Gather Chocolate. Also I loved this company since it was from Massachusetts and so is my husband – so I was immediately interested in them.  They have a beautiful online chocolate shop with ton of options – it is a great gift giving site ! More about GATHER –  Conceived out of a love for nature and the outdoors, Gather Chocolate is not only beautiful and a delight to the taste buds, but also our way of raising awareness of the plight of the honeybee. The alarming loss of honeybees and other pollinators is perilous to all agriculture and our ecosystem. They hope to change the trend by becoming part of the solution. They will be donating 2.5% of all Gather sales to the Pollinator Partnership to aid in their efforts to preserve and protect our pollinators. . Save the bees! The Pollinator Partnership is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and the largest in the world dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems.
