When I moved into my first apartment my drinking glass supply consisted of jelly jars and mason jars. They were cheap and sturdy. They also had the built-in perk of letting me put a lid on my drink to save for later or take with me. But not a lid I could drink through travel-mug style. I know, a burden.
Fast forward. Last January two innovators, Joshua Resnikoff and Aaron Panone, solved the problem with Cuppow. It’s a travel-mug lid made from phthalate-free, BPA-free plastic. You can order a lid to fit a regular or wide-mouth canning jar. Just pop it over the jar, screw on a ring, and you’re good to go. The lid and the minimal packaging it comes in are made in the U.S.A. The Cuppow makes it easy to slurp your smoothie, sip your coffee, or stick a straw in your iced tea.
If you want to dress up your take-along canning jar while cutting down on condensation, invest in a jar cover. Etsy.com artists have been busy creating some striking options.
