Bubba Tumbler Review: Saves Money and the Environment


In 2014, I purchased a Bubba brand Envy Tumbler in an attempt to save money, avoid coffee spills, and reduce the amount of unnecessary plastic cups being sent to the landfill each day.  I had no way of knowing how much money and stress that one rugged, insulated tumbler really would save. If you are looking for a durable travel mug for hot or cold drinks, Bubba brand is for you.



The Durability of Bubba Envy Tumblers


As I mentioned, I purchased my Bubba brand tumbler years ago.  I've used that one single cup for my iced coffee nearly every day since.  I am only just now looking to replace it because I drove off with it on my Jeep bumper a few months ago.  As I turned out of my parking lot, I heard a "clunk" and saw iced coffee and ice skittering across the road.  With the intent of removing a potential plastic shard road hazard, I stopped and retrieved my Bubba Envy Tumbler.  Stunned, I found that my Bubba was intact and was only slightly loose at the top mold seam connecting the double walls. I've used it every day since that mishap and am only now looking to order a replacement.

If that isn't a testimonial for durability, I don't know what is.

Financial Savings of a Bubba Tumbler


When I purchased that first Tumbler, I began making my own iced coffee at home instead of stopping at a local coffee shop each day. I had realized that if I spent a mere $5 at that coffee shop each day, for 365 days a year, I was spending $1,825 a year. I invested less than $20 for the first Bubba. With the exception for travel and when I'm away from home, I have made my own coffee to fill it. 

If you saved over a thousand dollars in a year, what could you do with that extra money?


Travel Mugs: Environmental and Emotional Savings 



Commercial iced coffee is served in plastic cups with lids and straws.  I cringe when I think about having added one of those cups each day into the landfill before I began using my reusable travel tumbler. 

If you are clumsy as I am, you'll understand when I mention the level of stress that those plastic cups caused me.  The lids would pop off and the coffee would splash onto my clothes. And wow, have you ever knocked over one of those cups and watched helplessly as the lid pops off and the coffee washes across your desk like a miniature tidal wave? I have. But not since I have begun using this wonderful version of an adult sippie cup.

With a straw inserted, the Bubba Envy Tumbler isn't absolutely leak-proof. But only dribbles escape from the straw and straw opening, which is much better than the alternative mess.

Whether you drink hot coffee, iced coffee, or other drinks you will find a Bubba brand mug to suit your needs.  And it is a bonus that in the long run you will save money and help protect the environment.

  1. Wow, math doesn't lie! That's a huge savings in a year, or even just a month. I'm a water drinker, not a coffee drinker, and I have a wonderful Bubba Mug like the one in your picture, but in purple. It's wonderful, keeps a huge amount of water handy which is good since sometimes I get busy and forget to drink. Awesome review of the Bubba tumbler!

  2. Wow! I think everyone I know could use a Bubba Tumbler. I doubt very many people have ever really done the math to know how much they are really annually spending on coffee from the retail shops or restaurants. And yes, absolutely! I would say your experience with the Bubba tumbler is most definitely a testament to its durability.

  4. Dawn Rae, thanks for telling me about this Bubba Tumbler. I hate using paper or plastic cups from commercial outlets as they are often 'spillable' as you pointed out. And to help the environment, this is an extra bonus reason to use this tumbler.
