“Practice reusing and show kindness to the earth.” - The Mason Bar Company
In the last few years, masons jars have gone from canning necessity to Pintrest passion. They show up in wedding table centerpieces, as DIY lanterns, and decorative storage for pretty much anything. They have also expanded their use in their original place in the house-- the kitchen. The mason jar now find's itself on the kitchen shelf for many different reasons: as a glass, as an alternate to Tupperware, as a vase, and so on. That is where The Mason Bar Company comes in.
Started by Owner/Creator Bobbi Bankston,The Mason Bar Company creates an array of Mason Jar Tumblers and accessories all made in the USA. The jars are equipped with a plastic lid with a spot for a straw, transforming them into a sustainable option for on-the-go drinks of all kinds. This Eco-friendly goblet can be used over and over for smoothies, coffee, tea, or pretty much anything you can slurp through a straw.
All the accessories that go along with the tumblers are offered separately as well. The lids come in a number of fun colors (even sparkles!) that can be added to any jar you already have, or outfitted onto one of the 8oz-32oz jar options the Mason Bar Co offers, in regular or wide mouth versions. All their plastic lids are dishwasher safe and BPA free. Newly added to their line is the Bamboo Storage lid, hand sealed with beeswax and natural oils. They have Bamboo tumbler lids as well, but the storage lid offers a stylish way to keep your dry goods like seeds and grains tucked away in large mason jars that match any kitchen theme.
They also retail reusable straws, in both plastic and glass, that can easily live in the tumbler after each wash so you will never be without one. A must-have tool is their handy straw cleaning brush for those days that you forget your dirty smoothie cup overnight. Has anyone else ever tried getting a dried raspberry seed out of a straw? You will definitely want want one of these brushes for those moments.
A must-have accessory to complete your tumbler ensemble is one of their snap on Cuffs. Made from leather, vinyl, and suede, in many colors and patterns, these Cuffs snap around your glass chalice to keep your hands from getting chilly or burnt. Plus, they are adorable and soft, and handmade in the MBC warehouse by their Product Designer Annie Stayer.
Starting out as just a great idea and some elbow grease, the Mason Bar Co now retails in many Whole Foods and one-of stores across the states, and has even made an international jump to Australia, Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, the UK, Mexico, and of course, Canada.
You can often catch many members of the Thrive Tribe sipping a fruity blend or an iced coffee out of one of the MBC's signature tumblers. We love the Eco-friendly outlook of the company, the meld of urban and rustic style of the products, and the entrepreneurial spirit of Bobbi and her band of lovely ladies.
