Coffee Cup Sleeves
If you are a daily coffee drinker on the go, then you know the struggle of holding a fiery coffee in a paper cup that is too hot to handle. Of course there are the universal paper cup sleeves and the two cup method for better insulation. However, a reliable barrier from the heat requires a sleeve that is both sturdy and reusable.
Neoprene Coffee Cup Sleeves
A neoprene coffee cup sleeve or koozie is a high quality reusable and washable cup sleeve. You can even customize your cup sleeve with your initials or logo. The neoprene cup sleeves are extremely versatile as they will also fit Solo cups, pint glasses and more. It can even be shimmied onto a wine or high ball glass for added comfort from the cold.
Foam Coffee Cup Sleeves
A foam cup sleeve is also very good quality and reusable. Foam is much more price competitive (see here). The foam cup sleeve can be adorned with your initials or logo just like the neoprene. Unfortunately, the foam cup sleeve is not as versatile. The foam sleeve does not stretch and retract as the neoprene does. So while it will definitely fit your coffee cup and other similar sized containers, anything outside of this standard size will be a bust.
Better for the Earth
Paper cup sleeves are the standard, especially for coffee cups. These have been made popular by America’s favorite coffee shop with the green and white logo. The paper sleeves are desirable due to cost, customization and recyclability. However, tossing one sleeve a day will add up. A reusable, washable cup sleeve with your unique brand is more appropriate for daily use. Additionally, everyone will know it’s your coffee. Hands off!
