Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

I love the look of this product - some people have actually thought it was a paper cup and offered to throw it out for me. I also love it as a travel mug b/c it doesn't affect the taste of my coffee.

The thing I really dislike is that my lip gets suctioned into the lid when I finish taking a sip. It's a bit uncomfortable. The silicone lid is also difficult to get clean. Forget about getting lipstick off of it.

    Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

    My friend broke her favorite travel mug, and I wanted to replace it, but they'd stopped making it. After a little searching, I found this one. She absolutely adores it. She calls it her "adult sippy cup." It fits perfectly in her car's cup holder, keeps her coffee hot, and holds the perfect amount to get her going in the morning. A great gift for anyone who loves taking coffee to go.

    Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

    The cup is great. My wife and I both use them every day. It's a solid cup and really looks like paper. I highly recommend it and believe it's much better than using a new paper cup every day.

        Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

        This is the best cup, it's a size "tall" in coffee shop speak and people freak out when they realize it's not paper. i always hated the stainless steel cups, hard to clean and i didnt enjoy drinking out of them. and i always felt bad about getting the paper cup with the lid i liked. now i can be green and enjoy, it's the best!

          Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

          I go to the coffee shop at least 3 times a week. I feel great using this re-usable cup instead of generating more waste with disposable paper cups.

          The first time I used it at the coffee shop even the barista asked where I had bought it! All my friends talked about it for so long that I got them all cups too!!!

          We are all very impressed with the quality of the product. It feels heavy like glass and it looks expensive. The inside is porcelain while the outside of the cup is matte and textured. The cup doesn't get hot so you can hold it without risking a burn. It also has an adorable rubber lid. Both parts are easy to wash and care for it.

          I completely recommend it!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Super fast shipping! I love how Uncommon Goods packages the products, there's no chance of anything breaking inside the box. Thanks!

            Great alternative to the regular boring travel mug. Throw it in the dishwasher and it is squeaky clean. My co-workers are so intrigued by it, they all touch it thinking it is a paper cup. Great gift for a coffee lover (or any liquid lover)!

              I bought two of these cups and was looking forward to a ceramic travel mug and help save the environment in the process. I have to say I do not like them at all. Its too small and the silicon lid is aw full. There is no second hole to let the coffee come out easily! I had to make one and ruined the lids in the process. The lids also stain easily. Needless to say I went back to my disposable cups [...]. The ceramic cups are now useless to me. I would not recommend them.

                A great way to encourage "green thoughts" and discourage paper consumption. Bring this with you to your favorite coffee place- avoid the paper cups (and the taste it gives your drinks)!

                    "I'm not a paper cup" is the perfect gift for that someone that has everything. My husband and I recieved these cups as a wedding gift and we use them everyday. It's amazing how real they look-- I was the hit at the office when I passed around my "I'm not a paper cup"!
