They walk among us, people so green that they drink their shade grown fair trade organic bird friendly hand ground cubana coffee from reusable mason jars instead of travel mugs or paper cups. And until this great year of 5125 on the Mayan calendar they had no choice but to sit down or walk slowly If they wished to drink their coffee, while their bosses and fast-moving prospective 1 percenters raced through their day with lids on their cups.
Now, designer Aaron Panone and Joshua Resnikoff banish this problem forever, turning the standard Mason or Ball Jar into a sippy cup just like the one you enjoyed as a child. Aaron tells Core77:
The canning jar already makes an awesome platform for a travel mug: it’s easy to clean, made of heat-resistant glass, cheap, durable, and when sealed it doesn’t leak. The only problem is that with their large openings, 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.
