"A smart and simple way to use a canning jar as a to-go cup."
EcoJarz is a young company that has taken being eco-friendly to its upmost potential. They came about from some innovative minds that were tired of seeing the amount of waster generated from disposable paper cups in our throw-away culture and strove to find another alternative. Reusable cups are great, a step in the right direction, but the EcoJarz team had other ideas to take things a step further, and that was to reuse old jars and turn those into a to-go cup instead of buying something new entirely.
The Stainless Steel EcoJarz Drink Top was their first invention and are designed to make reuse the new norm. These drink tops fit standard canning jars, so they also fit hundreds of other bottles and containers that are disposed of everyday; fitting any standard mouth jar, whether it’s an empty tomato sauce, salsa, or peanut butter jar, or so many more. With EcoJarz, the possibilities of turning jars into long-lasting, always-handy, on-the-go drink vessels are almost endless.
When it comes to recycling, reusing, and being over-all as eco-friendly as possible, EcoJarz really struck me as an amazing overall company doing right by our mother earth. It seems like such a simple idea, but amazingly innovative and useful. In our home, we always reuse containers and jars for various purposes, but these EcoJarz Drink Tops have added that extra love to our reusing that I wanted. I truly think every home should have their own EcoJarz Drink Top.
The Drink Tops are available in both small and wide mouth jars, and they even have a silicone top as well. While the Drinking Lids are amazing enough as it is, EcoJarz also offers several other creative products, including a line of both stainless steel and glass straws to match, aaaaand have a straw cleaning brush, awesome right? They also have spoons designed for really tall jars, aaaaand a stainless steel tea infuser basket (which is next on my list to buy).
Finally, for those that may not have a jar already handy, they also sell 16oz and 24oz glass drinking jars--but I love how much of their focus is on the Drink Tops themselves rather than purchasing a new jar. How fantastic are they?!
Do you know what else is amazing about EcoJarz? They have your health in mind, as well as that of the planet's. EcoJarz uses glass, stainless steel, and/or silicone in all of their product lines, keeping you safe from BPA and toxins that can leach into your food and drink from containers.
"There is a growing amount of research highlighting the benefits of using non-reactive drink and food storage for everyday use. By using materials such as Glass, Ceramic, Stainless Steel and Silicone you are protecting yourself from many harmful compounds and toxins such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and Phthalates. Materials such as Glass, Silicone and Stainless Steel are best suited for contact with food and beverages because of their lack of reactivity. This means that you can use and reuse them again and again and they will put nothing harmful into your food!"
One more thing I love about EcoJarz (as if there wasn't enough to love about them!) is that unlike most conventional lids, EcoJarz' stainless steel lids Don't rust! This was actually one of my first concerns when I first saw their products and upon reading their FAQ I discovered that they truly are just amazing products that have thought of everything for you. No hassle, just plain lovely healthy awesome drinking containers with the convenience of these lovely Drink Tops!
