It’s no secret that I love my coffee. As a permanently tired toddler mama, I’m all about the caffeine. I’ve been lucky enough to try out lots of different coffees for my blog. One of my faves has been Black Farmer, which has sustainability at the heart of its production.
As well as caring about what I drink, I consider what I drink from too! Enter Ohelo. Launched at the end of last year, Ohelo sell a range of reusable cups and tumblers made from stainless steel. They are designed in the UK and have fully accountable manufacturing processes.
The bottles and tumblers are BPA, BPS and BPF free. Adding to this, the electro polished interior provides high resistance to bacteria build-up. Stainless steel is reliably hygienic with no chemical leaching. All good stuff!
The first thing I noticed is the beautiful designs. I’m a sucker for a floral print and their ‘blossom’ design is simply stunning. I both a bottle and tumbler in white and the photos don’t do them justice. What is brilliant is that the pattern is 360° laser etched, so it won’t fade.
I love their eco-credentials too. As the products are stainless steel they will last a long time. But when they do reach the end of their useful life they can be recycled. Did you know steel can be recycled endlessly? Which is a big bonus for the planet.
They both arrived in really robust packaging too. I was pleased to see this is both recycled and recyclable. Another thumbs up!
Put to the test
Next up was to put them to the test. With lockdown in place when my bottles arrived the best to try them was the garden. Running round after my daughter, it was surprisingly helpful to have a coffee or a water to hand.
Ohelo can keep the contents hot for up to 12 hours. Or cold for 24 hours. This is thanks to the double walled vacuum insulation. I didn’t give my drinks that long as I was keen to consume them, but can certainly attest they were warm/cold for the good couple of hours I had them on the go. They are leak proof too and after knocking them a few times whilst rushing I can attest this is true!
I am in love with my Ohelo bottle and tumbler. As well as super stylish, their eco-credentials get my vote. I can’t wait to take them further afield! You can buy them over at the Ohelo website.
