Giveaway Monday – JyARz

I’m excited to offer 6 giveaways today, 1 JyARz per winner! These cool little containers get more amazing every day to me. Made from glass, recycled milk jugs and latex, JyARz are eco friendly, protect the contents from exposure to light and are travel and shatter proof!

JyARz are portable, airtight, glass-lined, eco-friendly travel containers that are made in the USA. They are 1.25 fl. oz.


The uses for these cool little jars are limitless. Store dried herbs in your first aid kit, tinctures in your back pack, even fill with a salve or oil for easy transport!

The glass liner removes from the plastic sleeve for easy clean-up. I love these little containers and will be incorporating them into my first aid kit, to protect my herbal remedies and keep them fresh.

To share the JyARz-y love, I’ll be giving away 6 JyARz, 2 of each color. In your comments, please list your color preferences in order and I will do my best to accommodate your first choice. Or, if you prefer, leave the color choice a surprise!

Want to show your support of JyARz? You can ‘like’ them on Facebook.

For a chance to win one of these cool little containers, leave a comment. For additional chances to win one of these JyARz, leave an additional comment. Only 1 JyARz per person will be selected. If someone is selected twice, I will reselect through the random generator until I have 6 individual winners. Additional comments can be left for any of the following:

    Wow they look like they would be very handy! I would probably make some boo boo salve and give it to our daughter’s first grade teacher. He takes them on walks through the garden and it seems as though boo boos are inevitable.

    Wow neato, I love the reuse of materials. :) As for colour, I am not particular if I did win, it’s more about its usefulness and not the colour to me.

  54. 54

    What a good idea… I was looking for something like this for the children in my class. We will make shampoo and give it as a Christmaspresent for the parents. And this in such a nice box… can it be a better idea to give this as a present?
    I like such ideas a lot.

    These are cute little jars. Thinking of all the possibilities. I’m always worried about plastics and chemical leaching so I love the fact that these jars have a glass liner….and it’s removable to boot! Good luck to JyARZ!

    These look awesome, and would be so useful when we go camping- I have to pack any salves etc so carefully that I end up not taking some of my medical things just because of the pain of having to wrap to pack. Any color would be fantastic!

    These are genius. Many eco storage solutions!
