Eco find: Locally made reusable jar covers pretty up kombucha-brewing process

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Vancouver loves its kombucha, but let’s be real: the powerhouse beverage ain’t cheap.

      Brewing your own batch at home, however, costs little more than the price of a glass jar, a few pieces of cheesecloth or paper towel, and some bottles to store the tea in.

      If you’re in it for the long haul and are looking to pretty up the fermentation process, check out the reusable printed-cloth jar covers (from $9 at Homestead Junction [649 East Hastings Street]) by Vancouver’s Lochs & Lambs.

      Designed to fit snugly over a range of jar tops—and available in an eclectic assortment of colours and patterns—they make kombucha-brewing (and leftover-stashing) even more environmentally friendly.
