Wow, those cuppow things look so cool! I'm totally getting some. Thanks for mentioning it :)

My husband discovered these hard plastic toppers that turn wide-mouthed canning jars into adult sippy cups, Simple idea that works great and makes me wonder why someone didn't think of it before.

Google "cuppow". Everyone who sees me with it wants one!

I pour my juice over ice on one of those double insulated cups with a straw. It stays supercold all morning!

My mom loves nutella, so I use the jar (which is glass) once she's done with it. I like it coz it seals nicely :)

Here's a cute idea: I've seen these little caddies for displaying or gifting 4 jars of preserves or whatever. I bought one use it to transport my jars of juice to work on my all-juice days. It's kind of corny I know but it cheers me up. It's like having a little juice bar and is an easy way to transport those jars. I found mine at Wal-mart in their canning section.

Love the mason jar idea! I usually juice in the morning before work and drink it from an iced tea glass.

I use mason canning jars too. Fill them to the top and seal them tight then put them in an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack.

We have crazy glasses around here so I always choose the 'It's Not Easy Being Green' Kermit glass. Kinda seems appropriate, doesn't it? lol

thanks, y'all!

I will look for the BPA free plastics... and glass. I agree that glass would be best.

I found non-BPA plastic bottles with really secure lids at Krogers (grocery store). They have screw on lids and snap on pour spouts that are really solid and sealed.

I think the best thing to put anything in is glass but glass can be difficult in that it can break if dropped. I believe it is the safest in terms of chemicals though. Many people use wide mouth mason jars for taking juices, smoothies, and water on the go. That being said, I use BPA free plastic camelbak bottles. At some point I do plan to transition to glass for day to day use. I will probably use plastic for things like biking and hiking. A lot of people feel stainless steel is safe. I just don't trust it. No real rationale for my feelings I just have a strong negative feeling toward stainless steel and I am going with my gut.

I'm looking at getting some portable cups/bottles for my juice on the go and was wondering what's best. I know the aluminum water bottles are popular, but are they good for juices (thinking of acids)? Would plastic be best, like those insulated go cups with straws? Thanks for your input!
