What gardener doesn’t like to work with a nice refreshing beverage in hand? Whether it’s a cool glass of ice water on a hot summer day, or a cup of hot coffee on a cooler fall day in the garden, you need the right container to keep your drink insulated. A paper cup from the coffee shop is convenient, but as a gardener you know that this material will only end up in a landfill. What if you could drink from a re-usable, insulating, and safe container instead? You need a GreenSert.

What is a GreenSert?

A GreenSert is a new invention developed by entrepreneurs who were interested in coming up with a solution to the billions of disposable paper cups that end up on landfills every year. Paper cups are made from paper and waterproof polyethylene coating. This means they are difficult to recycle. Furthermore, the paper used is not from recycled materials due to hygienic concerns.

GreenSert was developed to get around these issues and more:

  • GreenSert is plastic-free and plastic may possess health hazard.
  • GreenSert is super compact and lightweight, you can literally carry it in your pocket!
  • GreenSert is the ONLY/FIRST cup solution, which is sustainable AND convenient.

It is a food-grade silicone insert that can be used to hold and insulate cool drinks and hot beverages. It is made from non-toxic materials, and it can be used to hold your cold water in the summer (or that hot coffee in the fall and winter). The GreenSert is recyclable and reusable too, so you can feel better about using it instead of throw-away paper products.

How it Works

The GreenSert is an insert made from silicone. It fits into any standard 12-ounce cup, but also fits into cup holders of various sizes. The silicone material is insulating without being harmful or toxic. It keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. The insert can be used inside of paper cups or holders that can then be recycled because they do not include the polyethylene coating that makes non-recyclable paper cups waterproof.

Additionally, GreenSert can be used with paper cups and holders that are made from recycled materials. There are no hygiene concerns because you drink from the re-usable, washable GreenSert, not the paper cup or holder. GreenSert is dishwasher safe, durable, and made in the U.S.

Staying Cool and Refreshed in the Garden

GreenSert is reusable and recyclable so that you can feel good about using it in the garden. Use it multiple times or recycle it when you’re done and stop putting paper products in the garbage. For a gardener, this is a great solution. It allows you to take your cold drinks out in the garden on those hot days when staying hydrated and cool is so important for your comfort and safety.
