Minimalism is based on a single guiding principle: That simplicity and beauty are often one and the same. These glass-made vessels embrace that notion on every level, offering a stylish, eco-friendly alternative to disposable bottles and BPA-heavy plastics. Made with simple glass and food-grade silicone, these bottles are a welcome departure from the excesses of a disposable world. A 1.25 inch opening enables spill-free sipping, while a range of brilliant colors lets you rep your personal style. Best of all, a portion of each sale goes to charities like the Obakki Foundation, which brings the gift of clean water wherever its needed most.
I love my bkr(s!) so much. I got both using my Birchbox points which was awesome due to the price and my desire to use glass over plastic. Also, if the glass bottle breaks you can email bkr for a FREE replacement. Two great companies coming together to give you one great product. I have one of each side, don't have difficulty cleaning, love the colors, etc etc5
I love how cute this bottle looks, however it is smaller than most bottles I carry. The opening is not very big so unless you have a funnel it's a bit messy filling it up. Also b/c the mouth opening is so small you need a bottle brush small enough to clean inside it.2
I prefer glass water bottles (easy to clean, no polymers leaching into your water, aesthetically pleasing, etc) but I'm clumsier than a toddler. I've had several different brands (I don't think I can list them here?), all of which have taken drops really well, some better than others. After about a month of use, the day finally came that I dropped this one. I dropped it from the height of my coffee table, precisely 36 inches, and it shattered. Such a short drop for this small of bottle to break!
But that's not what I didn't like about it. The lid made my clumsiness ever present with its stationary little loop. The angle at which it resides, for some reason, interfered with my opening finesse and I was always dropping it. I made quite a reputation for myself in the library with this bottle cap.
If you want to be well known for the dropsies, buy this little guy! If you like seeming in control of your motor skills, reconsider. I will say, the Mimosa color is a lovely peach that sent off the message I was girly and fun while also letting everyone know I've got butter fingers (and not the candy bar). Two stars for offering fun colors other than the standard blue, white, black, and puke green. Minus three stars for making everyone hate me.
Before my first use, I filled it with water and put it in the freezer, when I took it out a few hours later the glass had completely shattered underneath the silicone coating. I was so sad that I never even got a chance to use the sophisticated water bottle!1
I'll admit, I used to be a serial water bottle user. I used to go through disposable plastic bottles every week, wasting lots of packaging that I sometimes failed to even recycle. I was so glad to find a bottle that was reusable, as well as small enough to fit in my purse and not leak! I take this bottle with me everywhere I go, it's so beautiful and it's made of glass so I can put essential oils in it!5
I was on the fence about this - $30+ for a water bottle seems like a lot - but I've dropped it and it's sturdy enough to not break at all. I think BKR also has a lifetime warranty?
Anyway - plastic and metal water bottles get pretty smelly, glass is the way to go. Definitely recommend it.
I've been trying to drink more water so I decided to splurge and purchase a 16oz bkr glass water bottle in Rex (a gorgeous violet shade). I absolutely love this glass bottle. It's stylish (I've received multiple compliments), easy to tote around, comes wrapped securely in a colorful food-grade silicone sleeve, and doesn't leach chemicals into my water.
Although the glass bottle isn't as durable as a metal bottle, I've knocked mine around a few times without incident. It also lets me avoid the strange metallic taste I always seem to pick up when drinking from a metal water bottle.
The mouth of the bottle is a bit small, making it difficult to clean by hand or use with ice cubes. The company sells miniature ice-cube trays and bottle brushes specifically for cleaning their products. The small mouth also makes it easier to drink from neatly without worrying about accidentally dumping water down my front.
Great size , its just perfect bottle easy to clean and wash5
I'm trying to drink more water. Plastic bottle get so gross and water tastes strange after it sits. These bottles are amazing. At first I was worried they would break. I can't tell you how many times mine has rolled of the chair or been knocked off the table by my toddler. Water gets cold fast when placed in the fridge and stays cold. Best of all no funky tasting water and no more wasteful Plastic bottles. I've bought two so far.5
Great bottle and keeps the drink decently cold. Also the bottle is really pretty. The small mouth opening is nice in that it makes it easier to drink without spilling it all over yourself however it also makes it a bit hard to clean. I do wish it was a little bit bigger (i.e 20 oz instead of 16) and when I dropped it the cap loop cracked.5
