Tumblers have been all the rage recently, likely due to the popularity of the Stanley cup. If you were looking to make some small environmentally-friendly changes to your lifestyle, investing in some reusable cups would certainly be a step in the right direction. Plus, keeping plastic bottles out of landfills will certainly go a long way. However, Stanley tumblers are expensive, so some of our favorite budget grocers have been rolling out their own tumblers that won’t break the bank.

Dollar Tree is the most recent to stock the shelves with some new tumblers, as spotted by Instagram account @dollartreeinsider. The 21-ounce tumblers have a gem-like exterior if you’re looking for a little extra sparkle in your life, and are retailing in four colors: white, orange, pink, and blue. Each tumbler is selling for $2 a cup. While we know the Dollar Tree is only supposed to be $1, a $2 cup is definitely a bargain compared to a $45 Stanley tumbler.

Since we keep mentioning Stanley products, it’s important to note that these Dollar Tree cups aren’t a replacement for the Stanley tumbler. They won’t provide the same insulation so your beverage of choice might not stay cold for as long. However, this Dollar Tree version would be great for water or iced coffee in a pinch, especially if you have a long commute to work. You can even bring this to your favorite coffee shop and have them fill it up to eliminate single-use plastic cups.

If you happen to spot these at Dollar Tree, just remember that these are seasonal, so you may want to grab one or two while you can. And, since we’re doing our part to help the environment, if you’re going to stock up on these, make sure to use them until you can’t anymore to honor the people who made them and reduce your environmental footprint as much as possible.
