      Fall Favorites

      It’s that time of the year when the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change from green to alluring shades of crimson, orange, and gold. With the cold, crisp days of Fall approaching, hot beverages take on a new meaning. Welcome the changing of seasons with delicious holiday favorites such as spiced apple cider, hot cocoa topped with fluffy marshmallows, and cinnamon eggnog. No matter the drink, Mira products help ensure that your drink stays hot for hours so you can savor every sip. 

      To ensure optimal freshness, all of our insulated products are made from high-grade 18/8 stainless steel. Our unique MiraGuard technology maintains inside temperatures and provides a condensation-free exterior. If you’re looking for the perfect travel mug this season, look no further as all of the following travel mugs keep drinks hot for 4 hours or cold for 8 hours and are leak proof. The 16 oz Trek Mug has a one handed squeeze feature that opens the lid and has a mouth opening that provides a smooth flow. The 20 oz Pioneer Mug has a sturdy handle that is designed for your hands comfort. For quick fills and convenient sipping, the mug has a wide mouth flip-lid with a lip indent. The Quest Mug (12 oz, 16 oz) has the same flip-lid, but does not have a handle as its slim design makes it easy to hold.

      Mira has experienced many exciting changes this past year. From new partnerships to new products, 2018 was full of amazing growth.

      For the new year, we asked our Instagram followers important goals they set out to achieve in 2019. The top New Year’s Resolution was to drink more water, we hope this helps:


      #1 New Year’s Resolution: Drink More Water

      Drinking enough water is a simple, yet effective way to improve your overall health. Some of the most popular health benefits associated with drinking enough water includes: boosted energy levels, lowered stress, nourished skin, good digestion, and the reduction of kidney stones. There is no scientific recommendation for how much water you should consume. The amount of water you need depends on your individual needs and circumstances.


      If you would like to increase your daily water intake, there are a few easy steps you can take. The first step you can take towards proper hydration is using a reusable water bottle. A reusable water is a terrific way to keep track of your hydration. You can keep track of your intake by calculating the the capacity of your water bottle by how many times a day you fill up your bottle. You can choose the right bottle for you by determining your daily hydration needs.


      Mira offers a wide selection of bottles in various shapes, sizes, colors and patterns to help you find the bottle(s) perfect for you! Once you’ve chosen the bottle of your dreams, carry it around with you and drink water wherever you go.


      Another important step towards proper hydration is swapping all of your beverages with water. Rather than drinking unhealthy, sugary beverages, try only drinking water throughout the day. Another great tip is to drink water with every snack or meal you have to ensure you’re getting enough water.


      With a reusable water bottle, drinking enough water is so much more possible. It’s also better for your health, your wallet, and the environment!
