Put a lid on your Mason jar to make it a great reusable on-the-go cup #Shopping#beverages#great-ideas#mason jars June 21 | Megan Finley meggyfin Oh Mason jars, is there NOTHING you can't do? Okay, you weren't the most portable "on the go" type beverage holder. Until now. Let's hear it for the Cuppow Mason Jar Sippin' Lid! I just had to post the copy from Think Geek's page, because it's just too perfect: The humble mason jar has been around since 1858. Always popular among the home canning crowd and "down home" restaurants, it's starting to make a comeback thanks to (of all things!) Pinterest. There you'll find mason jars used in chandeliers, home organizing, wedding decor (it is Pinterest, after all), in addition to storage for make-ahead meals and beverages. Cuppow's simple design will make it the only travel mug you'll ever need. Just take a handy dandy canning jar: heat-resistant, BPA-free (cuz it's glass!), cheap, durable, and tight-sealing. Unscrew it, pour in your beverage, and replace the inner seal with Cuppow before screwing the lid on tight. You now have a simple, eco-friendly alternative to leaky and ugly travel mugs. Now you just need to hit Pinterest for some juicing recipes… And it's just $7.99 on Amazon right now. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

I bring my iced mint tea to work in a 32 oz. mason jar, then bring it from a smaller one. They're hardier than the glasses I own. 1 agrees Reply I'm pretty sure these are Somerville, MASS created! I saw it awhile back since it was local news. MASSACHUSETTS REPRESENT! 2 agree Reply I have one and it is *awesome* – I'm a mason jar junkie. Reply Any online place sell them besides think geek? They ridiculous customs fees crossing the border into Canada. 1 agrees Reply Yes- I think they sell it directly on their website: http://cuppow.com/ Reply Here's another, cappable option, too: http://recapmasonjars.com/ Reply Fantastic! I use a huge mason jar to make sure I get enough water throughout the day (not that I always do) and I'm always bummed that taking it with me is kind of a pain. Reply Love it! Just ordered 2! Reply Could you just make one out of a Starbucks/coffee cup top by cutting the edge off? Reply I feel like that wouldn't be water-tight enough? Reply I have owned and used one of these for a couple months selling them at my yoga studio. They are completely water-tight, not a worry. 1 agrees Reply Ah, no I meant to Nicole's suggestion of covering a Mason jar with a Starbucks coffee lid didn't seem water tight. Reply Any word on where I could find the model in that top photo? Because, holy smokes. Babe alert. ECO-FRIENDLY babe alert. 1 agrees Reply RIGHT!? Because I'm in a stalker-y mood, I tracked down the photographer to here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aarn/6668791267 Reply Not gonna lie, the fact that she's a hottie pants was, indeed, one of the reasons I wanted to feature this product! ๐ Reply Holy Crap! Mr. Ivriniel and I were just walking down Main St. and saw a display of "Redneck Wineglasses", martini glasses and assorted other mason jar style cups. Mr. I's brother loves to drink from mason jars, and just had a baby. I jokingly said to him that if they ever come out with a sippy cup version, we should get one to give to her as a toddler. And then I come here, and you have a sippy cup top for a mason jar. It's blowing my mind! ๐ Reply if they made these from silicone instead of plastic, i'd be all over 'em. portland area peeps: these are available at powell's, save yourself $5 in shipping! weeeeeee! 1 agrees Reply Also available at New Seasons, I saw one there just yesterday!
