We recently ordered samples of Aladdin's new ECycle recycled travel mugs to try out before I blogged on them. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about how a recycled plastic travel mug was going to look and feel, as I'm rather picky about travel mugs (being a swag queen and all).
We got samples of both styles pictured here... tried them out... and LOVED THEM! They're well-made, they feel great in your hand and have a cool matte finish that resists scratching and doesn't show fingerprints or smudges. The innovative twist & sip lid design works well, and best of all they keep hot drinks hot without imparting any off-flavors from the plastic.
For those who want the technical details, Aladdin's eCycle(TM) Polypropylene is a proprietary, custom formulated food-grade plastic made from 100% recycled material (25% post consumer). It's fully recyclable anywhere plastics are collected that are marked with a Resin Code 5. All of the recycled plastic use to make it comes from FDA food-grade containers and it's been formulated and tested to meet FDA food material safety standards.
Like many Eco-Swag items, the pricing on these is a bit higher than on non-recycled travel mugs. They're priced between $9-$14 each depending on quantity, with a miniumum order of 36 pieces. Here's a picture of the one without a handle:
They come in two colors - a nice powdery light blue or a soft gray. They come gift-boxed and are a great idea for a nice business gift or employee incentive.
