Turn Your Canning Jars Into Cool Cups 

Innovative lids let you take your mason jar with you when you're on-the-go

The humble Mason jar has experienced a bit of a resurgence. From trendy soul food eateries that sling spiked iced tea in lowbrow jars to nouveau home canners that pickle lemon rinds and celery root in the glass containers, the Mason jar has proven itself a versatile vessel.

Well, now thanks to the latest in sippy-cup technology, you can convert your favorite canning jar into a coffee cup. Cuppow manufactures BPA-free, 100 percent recyclable, dishwasher-safe lids that easily screw under a Mason jar ring.

The lids were invented in Somerville, Mass., by Joshua Resnikoff and Aaron Panone, who wanted to find a better way to drink from a jar.

According to cuppow.com: "Canning jars are not great for spill-free sipping while on the move. So we adapted it—made a new lid that lets us drink like a boss from virtually any wide-mouth canning jar. It's a simple, eco-friendly alternative to poor-performing and messy disposable hot cups, and over-built and expensive travel mugs."

You can order a Cuppow lid direct from the website for $7.99 a pop, or pick one up at Bricolage at 418 S. Sixth St. for $10. Bricolage also makes one-of-a-kind Mason jar coozies out of recycled felt storybooks, so your paws don't get too hot or cold while enjoying your favorite beverage.
