It’s both smart and fashionable to re-use and repurpose Mason jars for all sorts of applications beyond food preservation. At the 2016 International Home + Housewares Show in March, US brand reCAP from Erie, Pennsylvania, introduced two new product additions to its range of screw-on lids for Mason jars. The new reCAP Flip “flips” open to a large 2-inch (5 cm) opening, ideal for storing and transporting Mason jar salads and other meals. Also new from reCAP is the world’s first ever glow-in-the-dark, magnifying bug catcher kit. The second newcomer, the reCAP Explore, includes a 32 oz plastic Mason jar, carrying handle, and glow-in-the-dark cap with magnifying lid for kids of all ages to get a closer look at nature.
