Giveaway: EcoJarz Reusable Canning Jar Drink Toppers

October 23, 2012(updated on October 3, 2018)

EcoJarz

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.

EcoJarz

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.

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. oooooh, i like this! my to-go cup right now is the standard travel mug that was part of a goodie bag from a convention, but i’d much rather have something as cool as the ecojarz lid. thank you for the chance to win!

  2. I’d love to have these to turn some jars into sippy cups for my hubby and I to drink our evening coffee from!

  3. Travel mug all the way! Sbux one from when we got married five years ago. The matching one (for the happy couple, y’see?) didn’t seal and was tossed a bit ago.

  4. I use an oxo to go mug when I’m headed out of the house in the morning. Most mornings I get to enjoy my tea in a regular mug in the house.

  5. It all depends on where I’m going. If it’s a long trip I take a mug with me.. If I get an urge for something then I’ll get a QT hot drink but I use a straw while I’m driving.. So Even if it’s hot I have to use a straw.. I’m afraid that I’ll over tip and spill on myself while driving… :-S Not a good feeling lol

  6. right now, i use a travel mug that will fit in the water bottle holder on my bike (for my bike commute), when i was in middle school (yes, i started drinking coffee young!) i used a nestle quik bunny mug whose ears were the handles. i took it on the school bus and it always spilled on me!

  7. I switch between different sized jars and a Cuppow, which are almost always filled with homemade sweet tea. πŸ™‚

  8. Can I just take a moment to say how much I dig this canning jar meets drinking cup revamp? Well, I am totally all about it! It’s so dang cool!

    The hubbers is the traveling coffee drinker in the fam, but these are so chic I may convert, darn it!

  9. I am a ceramic mug clutched precariously in my hand on the way to school drop off kind of girl, so that I can throw it in the dishwasher when it’s empty instead of handwashing.

  10. My dad used to put his lidless ceramic mug on the dash of his truck as he drove to work – no cupholder, just on the dash! I don’t remember a spill but I didn’t often accompany him on his 4:30am drives into work.
    I wish I could say I always use as travel mug but sadly I don’t. I wish I had one though. I have a special mug on my desk that I use for in office coffee & sometimes I take it across the street for a fill up.

  11. OMG coolest thing ever- Please : ) I soooo want one of these! I’d use it everyday! Use a mason jar daily & a hydroflask! Love it – thanks : )

  12. I prefer drinking from glass, and really enjoy the cuppow lid, but love the idea of a straw while driving so that i don’t have to tilt my head back while driving. I love that all these creative ideas!!

  13. I’ve been using a tervis tumbler cup for a while now, but looking to get away from the plasic. My husband and I use mason jars at home though, so this would be a perfect way to transition the mason to a to-go cup. Thanks for the chance to win, would love too.

  14. Hi! For coffee I use a travel mug when I’m not on the road for my job. For cold drinks I love my turvis tumblers because they don’t sweat! When I’m away from home and I get a to-go coffee, I use a reusable cup sleeve. I love cutting back on my waste and finding new ways to do it! Thanks, Olivia

  15. i have two to-go cups of choice:

    if i’m working, it’s a thermal spill-proof cup with a straw. i work in the legal field, and spilling on important legal documents and court exhibits is frowned upon.

    otherwise, it’s a nalgene. takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’.

  16. I do like my travel mug for the morning herb tea. I keep trying mason jars. I’ve knit about 4 different kinds of cozys.

  17. I travel back and forth with a Copco plastic coffee cup, which is great for hot stuff, but is a downer as far as capacity for cold drinks at work.

  18. We are slave to the sippy cup in my household, using them for road trips and when I’m drinking things with articial colors around my white carpet. I would love something like this, since my mason jar collection is going to take over the entire damn house anyway.

  19. I use my keep cup (australian brand) that I got in NZ for my take-away coffee. However, this morning i was in a rush, so i put some cold brew coffee in one jar and then put a smoothie in another jar. I wished i had a straw, for sure!

  20. I use a travel mug for my coffee and a stainless steel water bottle for my water or any other cold drink. I have so many mason jars that are not in use right now, I can’t think of a better way to get them off the shelf.

  21. I am a SAHM, but my husband is full on crazy and brings his Office Space “Initech” mug to work every day. He puts it in the mug holder in it’s car and somehow never spills or breaks it. I haaate cleaning to go mugs and the most annoying part of my day is washing his reusable water bottle. I do it, because YAY EARTH and everything, but I purely detest washing anything with a drinking spout. These look easier, what with no spout and is just nice and flat. It will probably work with my glass straws too. Strawsome makes great straws, you should try them.

  22. I have a large selection of insulated coffee cups (plastic) for coffee but my cold drink cups are pretty limited.

  23. THIS is fantastic! My car is a graveyard of coffee cups and travel mugs. I drink my tea and coffee out of canning jars but usually in my office, I will definitely be picking a couple of these up πŸ˜€ Then maybe the proper cups won’t be an endangered species when guests come over.

  24. I have a Cuppow…but I must be doing something wrong b/c it leaks like crazy! Thankfully, green tea d/n stain.

    The silicone gasket is a great idea!

  25. for hot drinks, I use a Stanley travel mug – a plastic mug within a stainless steel tumbler, and each part of the lid comes apart so that it can be cleaned thoroughly, i love this thing! for cold drinks, usually a mason jar. would love a mason jar accessory!!!

  26. I use my awesome vacuum-sealed travel mug, which is almost entirely leak proof, but I also use a number of water bottles (and mason jars!) to sip water, iced tea, etc. at home or at the office.

  27. I use a travel mug with a handle. It isn’t leakproof and therefore the carpet in my car has had quite a few cups of tea too !

  28. I use a Kleen Kanteen, but would love this lid! I tried to donate and get some of these but I didn’t know you could order them. We drink out of mason jars in our house and I use them at parties instead of disposables. My niece had mason jars at her outdoor country wedding along with vintage plates from resale shops.

  29. Currently I use the same SIGG Stainless Steel travel mug every day. It has its ups and downs. Most days, though, I wish it had a spout for me to drink out of since I’m apt to spill it all over myself while driving. Also, it’s very insulated.. but a little bit TOO insulated. I can keep my tea in there for 6 hours and it’s still piping hot! This means I rarely drink my tea on my way to work because it’s just too hot. I’ve been waiting for someone to make a non-plastic Ball jar topper – and it’s here! So exciting.

  30. Currently I love using the tall asparagus jars for coffee every morning. A friend made me a cute cozy and I love the size. Currently use cuppow on the top but would love to not have the plastic so I am pretty excited about this new product…I also need me one of those straws..stat!

  31. I alternate between a Mason jar and my one over-sized ceramic mug for on the go coffee. Depends on which one is still in my car at 6AM… πŸ˜‰

  32. Right now I use a travel mug that like 6 years old.And when I am at home I use a mason jar with a old lid and band so the kids I watch will not make a mess if one of them get a hold of my glass.

  33. I use which ever coffee mug I grabbed for my first cup when I stumbled out of bed. That is if I haven’t misplaced that one somewhere in the house already. My greatest problem is that they never seem to make it back out of the van. I usually have a collection of empty ceramic mugs rolling around under my feet or when that gets too much they usually get set on the window ledge which is right next to where I park in the carport. Everything usually gets transported back into the house when we realize we have no cups in the cupboard. Then the process starts all over again πŸ™‚

  34. While we have travel mugs, I must admit we’re not very regular about using them. *hangs head in shame* These would be right my alley, as I’m trying to find as many uses as I can for extra canning jars hanging out in the kitchen. πŸ™‚

  35. I’m going to buy one regardless, thank you for reviewing them! I either don’t drink on the go or I refill plastic bottles that I’ve washed out. Kind of a pain to do when I’m in a morning rush and can’t find my funnel and the bottles get flimsy with repeated use. I really like the straw that you paired with the lid, may I ask where I can find one?

  36. I use those insulated cups with reusable straw. my ice stays in there for hours even when I leave the cup inside a hot car. love mason jars and would love this lid!

  37. go-to cup.. if its coffee then the travel cup ive had for years.. anything else then what ever jar is clean and ready to be used πŸ™‚

  38. I currently use a 24oz SS water bottle, but alas, the lid leaks on me, quite often. I would really like to try this. It seems so simple and appears to be leak free.

  39. You don’t want to know. Okay, I have to say it? I refill plastic bottles. Yup. Killing myself. I have jars for canning, so I could use this! Who needs it more than poisoned ol’ me?

  40. Disposable cup, most of the time. I always mean to use travel mugs, but I can’t put them in the dishwasher, so in reality I rarely do.

  41. I have a LifeFactory glass water bottle that I like. I would definitely go back to mason jars if I had this lid!

  42. I actually keep a canning jar by my bed for water during the night. I don’t know how many times I have knocked and spilled it! This would be an awesome solution! For my to-go routine for hot beverages I grab a to-go mug that saves me .50 on every refill!

  43. My sister visited KY last year right after the Derby. She picked me up an insulated beverage mug while there and I have been using that. I only have 1 of those – but many many canning jars ~ I could have some many option with this. Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  44. I have a cuppow, but I’ve often thought that it really needs a gasket like this one. Plus, love that it’s not plastic!

  45. I’m am such a fussy to-go coffee drinker. I have purchased and rejected way too many travel mugs. I like things in jars. Mason jars. This looks perfect. I would like knit a cuff to protect my hand from hot coffee. I also think it’s a great idea for cold drinks – you know, on the porch and filled with lemonade or some such.

  46. I use an insulated jar or just a pint size jar (using the lid and cover). It is a pain to screw and unscrew the cover every time I want a sip so owning a EcoJarz would be awesome….thanks

  47. I use a rotating cast of free and borrowed (stolen) travel mugs, none of which I am satisfied with. I love iced coffee in a mason jar, but usually end up with coffee all over my shirt! This ecojarz looks great, I would love to try it!

  48. My usual is a plastic water bottle full each morning; I’ve had the same bottle since I got it in training at the US Merchant Marine Academy. Lately I’ve also started taking breakfast to work after figuring out I could make scrambled eggs or oatmeal in a jar. I’d love to cover all my breakfast needs by grabbing two jars on the way out the door.

    These are great and I love that they’re stainless steel.

  49. Standard metal and plastic travel mug every morning. But, I’d love to break that boring routine with some of these lids!

  50. I usually use a ceramic coffee cup for… coffee in the am., but I love drinking out of mason jars for colder beverages, especially iced-tea. Just ordered two of these, one for a Christmas present and one for myself!

  51. I have a travel mug that gets used constantly and I also use a small jar (with a crocheted cover) with a lid (I drilled drinking and vent holes in a plastic cap).

  52. for hot drinks, i use a travel mug that looks just like a paper coffee cup! but i’d love one of these for smoothies and iced coffee!

  53. my hubby takes two cups with him every morning… a smoothie (in a throw away cup) and coffee in a reusable cup with lid. I LOVE this option

  54. I usually have two. One travel mug with my breakfast shake and one with my hot tea. I always spill my shake or tea somehow getting in or out of the car.

  55. We use whatever jar is within grasp…. and there are many. They are to precious to recycle. I use a ceramic to-go cup for coffee. Most everything else goes in a jar.

  56. how cool is that? Currently I have a bunch of reusable options, including some double-wall plastic tumblers with straws, flip top water bottles, and one of those cups that mimics a to-go coffee cup.

  57. Still not into the travel cup thing… I love drinking out of my favourite mugs at home, and always go the ceramic mug at work. But that said… I may change my ways when I get a car again.

  58. I use a stainless steel travel mug and many times is is balanced between my legs. At work, i carry a small travel mug french press to brew my locally roasted coffee. The coffee at work is not drinkable.

  59. I’m currently using a Cuppow on a pint and a half jar as my to go cup. These look nice because you can use a straw.

  60. i definitely do the precarious ceramic mug thing. but i also have a ceramic mug with a lid that looks like a throwaway coffee cup, which amuses me. i tend to use mason jars for iced coffee, though, and i think a lid would help that process.

  61. I like making my breakfast smoothies in my jars ever since I learned that I could screw the base of my blender onto a regular mouth jar and blend away. So I’ve been bringing my smoothies into work in jars rather than insulted cups lately. These lids would be perfect for that!

  62. I *try* to use my Thermos to take my coffee, but sometimes I forget to clean it (it happens to you too!) and I rely on the “put it in the mug please don’t spill” method). For cold drinks, I use my Mason jars and the regular lids because I am not cool enough to have a fancy lid yet. πŸ™‚

  63. I currently just use a can because I don’t have a mason jar with a lid, therefore if the soda is not cold I have to drink it hot. This would help out because I always drink from a mason jar at home. Thanks

  64. I’m a travel mug girl when it comes to coffee– but not for lack of trying! Mason jars+ hot coffee+clumsy me= disaster. But, that said, I love using my jars for my green smoothies. My daughter gets an 8oz and I get a 16oz and off we go to start our day with a little healthy goodness. A lid like this would really cut back on the amount of smoothie that is on my backseat!! (and the amount that ends up on her face as she tips the jar to get the last tiny drops!)

  65. I use a pint jar with a hand-knit cozy and Cuppow top to transport my morning coffee…but these are soooooo shiny!
