BNTO by Cuppow Product Review
Green Living Ideas was recently send a super cool BNTO by the makers of Cuppow. The BNTO is a little plastic cup that allows you to turn a wide-mouth canning jar into a to lunchbox! By separating your food jars into two compartments, you can bring liquids and dry foods in one jar! GENIUS! Now you can snack on yogurt and granola, hummus and veggies and more from just one jar!
I am a big fan of food in jars, and I’ve been using my little BNTO for a week now and love the convenience of this method of lunching. My preferred lunch is brown rice with veggies and tofu and some type of dressing, either my new favorite Creamy Almond Hemp Dressing or my standard Miso Tahini Dressing. Usually I bring one container with food and a separate small jar with dressing, making my bike commute heavy and potentially breakable! The BNTO carries them both safely and keeps my veggies from getting squashy in the dressing.
The Cuppow products are great, but the company is pretty damn cool too. All their products are made from BPA-free recycled and recyclable plastic. All their products are made using food-grade plastic, free of BPA, phthalates, and BPS. And all Cuppow products are proudly made in the US to support a vibrant local economy. They use only use domestic options for supply, manufacturing, and fulfillment, and they encourage customers to buy from brick & mortar stores to promote vibrant Main Streets in every town.
Cuppow began with a simple idea: turning handy, sturdy canning jars into a travel mug. Jars are easy to clean, made from clean, heat-resistant glass, affordable and virtually leak-proof. The Cuppow is a simple eco-friendly alternative to poor-performing and messy disposable hot cups, which are always a pain in the butt to clean, and always retain odors of whatever you might have had last, whether it was coffee or beer! The Cuppow drinking jar lids make drinking on the go easy and can be used with either size of your canning jar. The Cuppow BNTO, the newest offering, makes eating on the go just as easy.
