PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Classico® is passionate about using the finest ingredients to craft Italian-inspired pasta sauces with a taste that’s just like homemade. To retain those rich, authentic flavors, it makes sense that Classico® sauces are stored in glass Mason jars just as you would store your own sauces at home. But once your pasta is sauced and your pizza is tossed, what do you do with your leftover Classico® sauce Mason jar? In the spirit of Earth Day and beyond, Classico® is teaming up with reCAP® to encourage inspiration, passion and creativity for consumers to reimagine their own unique ways of reusing Classico® sauce jars.
“Not only do consumers enjoy Classico® sauces, but also they’re finding great value in our jars,” said Amber Lynch, Associate Brand Manager. “Classico® sauces have always come in Atlas Mason jars but it wasn’t until recently that we saw consumers repurposing our jars for uses ranging from storage containers to drinking glasses, kid-friendly crafts, wedding décor and more. Mason jars are really on-trend right now.”
“Our lids are sustainable and spill-proof and made in the U.S.A.,” said Karen Rzepecki, founder of reCAP®. “While the idea began with salad dressing, customers soon proved reCAP® lids could be used for much, much more. From storing dry goods like popcorn kernels, rice and candy, to transforming a Mason jar into an ‘on-the-go’ beverage container, customers have discovered endless uses.”
