As a self-proclaimed coffee addict, I took it as my duty to find a way to indulge my coffee addiction in way that doesn’t harm our planet. One (sometimes three!) disposable cups of coffee can really add up but Byta has helped me eliminate my use of disposable cups altogether! Their 16 oz cup is BPA free, toxin free, and vacuum sealed so there’s no sweating and it allows it to keep your coffee hot for a longer period of time. Most importantly, it fit most cup holders so you can enjoy your coffee during your commute to work!

The company is a supporter of Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is committed to saving our oceans. As of now, Byta has saved 14,500,000 cups from ending up in the ocean!
