If you don’t want plastic and would rather not use stainless steel a glass-bodied travel mug is an excellent option. They are generally attractive and a bit unorthodox and they can perform very well as a travel mug for both coffee, tea, or cold drinks.
Glass can easily be made with a double walled design making glass travel mugs good performers for thermal retention. They aren’t ever going to be the best at keeping your drinks hot but they will do just as fine if not better than even the best plastic travel mugs.
The biggest selling point of these mugs is that they do not use plastic – or at least they use far less plastic than many other options – and they generally cost less than high end stainless steel mugs.
