Health is important for individuals, as well as the environment and thermos bottles, help to take care of both of these. Thermos or vacuum bottles are designed in such a manner that no heat or cold transfer can take place through conduction or convection. They have an insulating layer within that prohibits the transfer of heat or cold and hence hot liquids stored in a thermos bottle remain hot and cold beverages remain cold for a long time. Carrying your coffee, tea or soup in winter and juice or cold coffee in summer is a good practice as then you would not be compelled to buy this outside.
Here is how carrying your beverages in thermos bottles is good:
Helps in Keeping Infections Away
Various cooking appliances have been invented to make life easy and convenient for people. Using these bottles, you have access to the beverages made at home in the most hygienic manner rather than buying from a shop where hygiene is not a priority. Hot beverages still have some resistance when it comes to the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and viruses, but it can spread easily through juices.
People drink juices as they are loaded with minerals, enzymes, and vitamins, which helps in staying fit and healthy. But juices prepared in an unhygienic manner at roadside eateries will do the reverse. If you have such juices, it is more likely to cause infection, especially during winter and make you sick rather than providing the benefits that juices are known for.
Helps in Cutting Down on Tea and Coffee
If you carry along tea or coffee in your thermos flask, you have the flexibility to keep sipping it for long without finishing it at one go. This is extremely beneficial for those who love to drink tea and coffee all through the day specifically during the cold season. They can still have it all through the day while the actual quantity they consume is not more than 2 cups. Thus, they can easily cut down on the quantity while still enjoying it all through the day.
The paper cups that most vendors use contain a layer of plastic inside to provide strength to the cup to hold the beverage for long. When a hot beverage is poured in it, this plastic can release chemicals that are detrimental to health.
Carry Along Healthy Soup
If you usually suffer from hunger pangs in the evening and thus gorge on unhealthy snacks in the office, you can carry home-made and healthy soup in these thermos bottles. You can have it without guilt. As you would prepare it at home, you can customize it as per your taste and preference. Furthermore, a hot cup of soup would be soothing during winter evenings.
Healthy for the Environment
These bottles are reusable and hence both pocket- and environment-friendly. Buying tea or coffee in plastic or disposable cups eventually ends up in landfills.
These are some of the many benefits of carrying around your thermos bottles. Anyone who is conscious about health and the environment loves to carry them around and enjoy steaming hot tea or coffee even hours after it is stored.
