I don’t really make New Year’s Resolutions; when I see a bad habit forming or want to add some good to my life I like to tackle it right away… rather than wait for some official date.
On the other hand, the New Year is a great time to get motivated to try something new.
Like, maybe, drinking more water and using fewer disposable cups?
Ha, then you’ve come to the right place!
One of my wintertime downfalls is not drinking enough water. All summer long I get hot, I get thirsty, and I drink water. It’s a great system for me… but it falls flat during the wintertime.
It’s cold out, I don’t get thirsty… and suddenly it’s bedtime and I am wondering if I have had any water all day!!! Not good.
That is why I was so excited to receive, for my part in hosting this giveaway, a widemouth stainless steel lid, complete with bendy straw and straw cleaner!
As I am sure you can guess, having a glass of water sitting at my work space… probably not a good idea! I’m not saying that Isis-Kitten would mean to knock over my water… but she does like to stick her paws in random water glasses. And, aside from being messy and potentially catastrophic, it’s just plain gross!
So that’s why I kind of love my EcoJarz lid and straw.
More fun things about the widemouth stainless steel lid:
- You take a plain old widemouth caning jar and screw on the lid. Zero waste.
- It’s fun to drink out of. Plus the straw makes a kind of neat rattly sound, which I like.
- It’s spill-resistant. Although it will spill if you tip it over. However, mason jars are reasonably difficult to tip over by accident (unless the accident involves a cat paw… or a toddler.) And even then, the water only sort of trickles out… no gushing, so that’s good.
- The only problem is that, because of the bend in the straw, it’s hard to clean. Yes, there is the little brush… but it doesn’t go around the corner. So, water is pretty much it. (Though you should note that the smoothie straw is straight, so you wouldn’t have to worry about that!)
