Cool Thing of the Month

Contigo Travel Mug
Look inside your Thermos®-style travel mug. If the lining is plastic, throw it out. Hot + plastic = badforyou. Get yourself a nice, new stainless steel vacuum drinking mug. I recommend the Contigo®, particularly if, like me, you have zero tolerance for spills and drips. Contigo’s “Autoseal®Technology” automatically seals between sips. It does require you to press a large side button when sipping, but that quickly becomes second nature. Comes in a variety of jewel colors but only the silver is completely dishwasher safe. No side handle but the contour feels great in the hand and it fits snugly in most car cup holders. $13.50 and up at Amazon.
