Giveaway: EcoJarz Reusable Canning Jar Drink Toppers


First, there was the ReCap (looks like they’re going to have the wide mouth version available soon. Be still my heart!) Then came the Cuppow. Now there’s a new kid on the mason jar accessory block and it’s called the EcoJarz. It’s a stainless steel lid, fitted with a silicone gasket to prevent leaks and it fits any regular mouth jar.


This lid has been designed so that the primary drinking hole can either be used as a spot for sipping or as space for a straw. The hole has been sized so that most standard straws fit it nicely. I find that like this lid better for use with a straw than for sipping hot beverages, as if you have a hot drink in the jar, the lid transfers the heat directly to your lips. However, as long as you’re not drinking scalding hot tea or coffee, you should be fine drinking directly from the lid.

The EcoJarz lid costs $7.99 and can be purchased through their website. They’ve also got it packaged up with handled mason jars, for an easy travel mug in a single.

EcoJarz with straw

The EcoJarz team is made up of a group of jar-lovers based in Ithaca, NY and Denver, CO. They’re committed to challenge our throwaway culture and get people to start thinking differently about the stuff we consume. Just the kind of attitude I embrace!

Updated: Here’s a link to the stainless steel straw I paired with my EcoJarz. Just a tip, only the bent straws made by RSVP Endurance fit this lid. The straight ones are a tiny bit too wide.

Thanks to the EcoJarz folks, I have five of these reusable drinking tops to giveaway. Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share your to-go cup routine. Travel mug? Disposable cup? Thermos? Ceramic mug tucked precariously between your knees while driving like my dad used to do? Let’s hear your stories!
  2. Comments will close at 11:59 pm east coast time on Friday, October 26, 2012. Winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog over the weekend.
  3. Giveaway open to everyone, no matter where you live.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post. I do not accept submissions via email.
Disclosure: EcoJarz provided me with six of their reusable jar toppers, one to keep and five to give away. My opinions remain entirely my own.

    I’ve had so many travel mugs over the years. Plastic takes on favors and I don’t like ht liquids in pastic. The stainless steel ones can be heavy to carry. I prefer glass, because even if it breaks its recyclable. I aso like the clear glass, because I can see if I need to clean it. I have unfortunately found many closed coffee mugs in the house that had been half drunk and set aside to get all sorts of nasty. Ugh!!! I want to add these to my Recaps and Cuppows.

    I am a 3rd year nursing student and on clinical practice days that start at 6:30am (literally on the floor and working a full hour and a half before sunrise), I have trouble making breakfast happen and there are times where breaks are hard to come by too. So I bring a protein smoothie in a stainless steel insulated mug, and pretend I am drinking my morning caffeine hit like everyone else.

    Travel mug with iced coffee regardless of the weather!

    Oh how exciting! My usual to-go cup is a mason jar with a regular lid! Great for a no-spill zone but not so great for drinking while going 😉 These would be perfect!

    Smoothies stay in the magic bullet cups, coffee and tea stay in our awesome planetary design coffee cup! Spills definitely do happen though 🙂

    I have a wonderful double walled glass travel mug. It’s a little fragile but hasn’t boken yet because I crocheted a cute cozy for protection.

    my to go is a stainless steel water bottle, simple and effective, but not as fun as a jar would be 🙂

    Tamar says:

    Sometimes I take a regular mason jar with one of the plastic lids and wait until I get to my destination. Other times it’s just a plastic cup and I cross my fingers it doesn’t spill all over the place.

    I cannot start my morning without a cup of coffee, but I don’t have the luxury of relaxing at home while I enjoy one so I travel with my bpa free, double walled, Bubba tumbler. It’s great for hot or iced coffee so I’m set for hot and cold mornings!

    I normally use travel mugs, but over time, do they get yucky! My home is filled with mason jars re-purposed for all kinds of things, and I would LOVE to use one for travel as well. This lid is nifty!

    I use either a plastic travel mug or a recycled ice tea cup from McDonalds. I would much rather drink out of glass!

    I have a bad habit of forgetting mugs here and there so any favorite is long gone. I prefer stainless over plastic and it needs to have a stopper or it splashes all over.

    My usual to go mug is what ever is clean and holds a lot of coffee!

    For about 3 years now I have been head over heels for KeepCup, an Australia company whose cups have lids that fit on the outer edge of the cup instead of inner, and whose cups actually fit under the espresso spout of the machine at coffee shops. They are adorable and customizable and I have one in every size! Love the idea of these lids for cold drinks though!

    I use a travel cup because I *know* I would spill on myself otherwise!

    I have a photo travel mug with a sweet picture of my kids. My beverage of choice: water!

    Travel mug, but it is too small. I’d ideally like to be able to take more drink on the go. These sound great!

    Summer says:

    I use Contigo travel mugs for hot coffee and tea and a reusable insilated acrylic cup for cold beverages. The only thing I don’t like is that the reusable plastic straw that came with cup gets icky on the inside. I clean it out with a pipe cleaner.

    I tried punching a hole through my regular mason jar lids because drinking out of mason jars is so fun and eco-friendly.

    Bobbi says:

    I am much like your dad in that I do the precarious thing and pray it doesn’t spill. Of course I could put it in the cup holder in the console but what fun would that be? 😉 Old school baby…Thanks for the giveaway. Still can’t get over the pic of you and papa. 🙂

    How about an UNFavorite…I hate the disposable to go cups you get at stores! I try to keep a clean metal cup in the trunk at all times. I also use my mason jars with handles in the summer for my iced tea. These tops would be grand.
