About

Hi there. I’m Marie,
Mason Jar Merchant’s Chief Jar Enthusiast!
(aka The Jar Girl)

 
  
 
My husband, Jesse, and I have been swappin' plastic for glass since 2014. But my obsession with mason jars began long before I started living the low-waste lifestyle. I’ve been collecting vintage jars for over a decade. They’re beautiful. Useful. Practical.
 
And dare I say, transformational?!?

We were using mason jars for everything. Eating. Drinking. Storing. Decorating.
Soon enough, we had amassed a rather large collection, and in 2013, we began renting out our beloved jars for special events. I also began crocheting sleeves and creating fun designs for glass tumblers, selling them at local markets in the Lower Mainland of B.C.

But then, Jesse and I noticed something...
 
*This is where the transformation comes in!*
 
The more glass we used in our everyday lives, the less household waste we produced.
 
What began as a fun, creative hobby became a mission to kick plastic to the (figurative) curb!
 
In 2015, Mason Jar Merchant was born and two years later, we launched this online shop to bring you hundreds of eco-friendly products -- along with freakin’ cute jars, of course!

We believe…
Single-use plastic is wreaking havoc on our lives.
Living a low-waste lifestyle should be fun, affordable, and achievable.
And swappin’ plastic for glass is the best way to start your low-waste journey!
Here’s to a happy, healthy life on a healthy planet.
 
Cheers!
