As we become more aware of hazardous plastic pollution, tumblers are gaining in popularity. We take our tumblers, containing water or other beverages, to work, school and many other places.
In on the trend is vacuum flask brand Thermos, which has released a new limited edition tumbler for Indonesia’s Independence Day, kompas.com reported. The stainless-steel tumbler is decorated with colorful illustrations of Indonesia’s cultural icons such as the shadow puppet, pedicab, temples and customary houses.

Melissa Andriani, marketing manager of Thermos Indonesia, said in a press conference on Tuesday that those interested in buying the tumbler could make preorders on Thursday.
Regardless of the attractive design, using tumblers is crucial in order to curb the use of plastic. Stainless-steel tumblers are also free from chemicals such as Bisphenol A (BPA), which is commonly found in plastic and linked to health problems.
Furthermore, stainless-steel tumblers preserve drinks at preferred temperatures for a relatively long period of time without affecting its taste.
As for how often we need to replace our tumblers, Melissa said: “Taking good care of a Thermos tumbler will make it last up to 25 years." (sal/mut)
