The coolest new water bottle on the block

bkr glass water bottle with silicone sleeveI fully admit to drinking way more bottled water than I should, even though I’m aware of how bad the plastic is for the environment, let alone the risk of water that’s been marinating in chemicals used to produce said plastic. But now I’ve found alternative that could truly change my water-drinking habits forever.

I just discovered the incredibly cool looking glass bkr bottles
and have fallen in love. Although the concept of a reusable bottle is
not exactly earth-shattering, the people behind bkr have managed to get
me excited about just that.

Yes, it’s made of glass, which may
sound like an accident waiting to happen, but the bottle comes housed in
a sleek, protective silicone sleeve in a range of gorgeous colors–making the whole
bottle look like a cool object d’art instead of a drinking bottle.

find the mouthpiece is shaped way better than any store-bought water
bottles and it’s super easy to clean. You can even leave the sleeve on
and stick in the top part of the dishwasher–something moms are
increasingly hesitant to do with plastic.

Although obviously bkr
bottles are too precious to use strictly as a kid’s drinking cup, I
have no objections to filling it with apple juice or chocolate milk and
sharing with my thirsty three-year-old. Sometimes. – Melissa

    as a fellow water bottle fan, i just HAD to share my most recent find: HYDROFLASK! It is the last bottle I will ever buy. I bought one for my entire family. It’s that good!!! what makes it so great: quite simply – it keeps my water ICE COLD for 24 hours. seriously. my water is gone before my ice melts. it’s seriously amazing. From their website, it is a, “Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle”. They are amazing. One of my coworkers just bought herself three of them after I shared with her. Another great thing about it, it doesn’t perspire and no matter how hot it is outside (e.g. at the beach all day or in a hot car) it will remain ice cold inside. it seriously is amazing.
