    For storing the coffee, I’ve found used candy jars are perfect. No need to buy expensive coffee jars when these glass ones look so much nicer.

      What a cool idea! What sort of candy jars do you mean?

      • Simon

        Thanks! :) You can get these tall glass jars full of candy around 12″ tall in England (I’m not sure about the USA!). When you finish eating the candy, peel the labels off and you’ll have a really nice tall, clear jar perfect for storing coffee. You could decorate yourself using glass paint or leave it just as it is. I really like your recycled coffee mugs idea too!

          Oh, very cool! I’ve used a Mason jar (like a canning jar) as a “water bottle” before. They’re also handy as a wine glass at parties, because you can put the lid on between sips to avoid messy spills. Especially handy if there are snacks and not much seating – you can snack without spilling your drink!

    It must be a LOAK thing because I bought the brown one myself! I love it. I like how the lid really snaps shut and has a good rubber gasket to keep it from spilling. My cup did two flips out of my center console last week and not a drop was spilled.

    If Aladdin isn’t sponsoring GreenUPGRADER yet, maybe they should be!

      Oh rad! I definitely dig mine. Clearly, they should sponsor us. :)

    My husband and I have also purchased these mugs from Target! I love them and will buy a few more b/c they are recycled and worth the price. :)
