The Number One Cup is a “commuter cup” like none you’ve ever seen before.
If you’ve ever taken a car trip with young boys—as a parent or a grandparent—you know that successive pit stops along the way can slow you down.
Emily Baldwin is a single mom with three young sons (ages 9, 6, and 4). “This product was born out of necessity during many a long drive—and even one train ride,” she says. Her goal was to create an “on-the-go” product that was convenient and easy-to-use.
The cup is made of polyetheylene terephthalate (PET) BPA-free plastic (considered one of the safer types of these materials). It can be emptied and reused multiple times by multiple users, and can be washed once you reach your destination.
- It fits into most automobile cupholders.
- It has a tethered lid that won’t get lost.
- It has finger grips for small fingers.
- It comes with three sanitary hand wipes.
Her kids also inspired its design. “When I explained to my nine-year-old that I wanted to make it clear that this bottle was not for drinking, he came up with the skull and crossbones idea, and we turned it into a kid-friendly version,” says Baldwin.
I didn’t ask Emily but I bet it could by used by boomer and beyond men in a pinch, too.

Just in time for summer road trips, Emily will send a Number One Cup (retail value $14.95) to one lucky reader of More Time To Travel who will be randomly chosen—for him/her to share with one of the men in their life.
To be eligible, leave a brief comment in the comments section below on or before July 15, 2015.
Disclosure: I did not use this cup or receive one for review. Emily is a friend and colleague.
Congratulations to the winner of the cup, Tina Clarkson!
