Full-disclosure: they are addictive (you can never have too many).

- bkr water bottles are far more eco-friendly than flimsy disposable plastic bottles
- The bottle and the sleeve are both dishwasher-safe
- Its narrow-necked mouth piece allows for a nice flow and no-spill sipping
- The grippy silicone sleeve makes the bkr bottle easy to hold
- The screw cap has a great little carrying loop at a slight angle, making it easy to tote the bottle by hand
- The sleek bkr bottles are made of glass, with silicone sleeves that come in various stylish designs and in a wide rainbow of colors to suit your personality
- Water tastes so much better out of glass
- It’s tough to fit standard ice cubes in the small spout. If you’re the type who needs ice in your water you will need to invest in some of the fancy bkr ice tube tray (which are super cute we must admit)
- It’s difficult to wash the inside of the bottle unless you get one of those small bottle brushes
- It is definitely a luxury water bottle (compared to most reusable bottles) and the cost certainly reflects that
- The bkr bottle can be a bit heavy to tote all day if you choose the 1 liter size

Ethics: Values that the brand embraces
One month with bkr glass water bottle
It’s no secret that drinking a lot of water is the absolute foundation for a radiant, healthy-looking complexion and general wellbeing. Yet somehow we’re always coming up short on our recommended daily intake. Until now.
In an effort to stick to our resolution to drink more water, we researched a variety of high-quality water bottles and stumbled on bkr (pronounced: bee-ker).
A cult favorite among A-list celebrities the world over, we’d seen the simple and stylish bkr glass water bottles all over the media but we were skeptical about the practicality of a glass water bottle.
We heard a lot about the benefits of drinking water from glass bottles though so we thought we’d give bkr a try!
The bkr water bottles come in 3 sizes – Teeny 8OZ (250ml), Little 16 OZ (500ml) and Big 32 OZ (1L), so you can pick the size that suits you most, depending on how big of a water sipper you are.
We opted for the 32OZ and 16Oz. We found the 16OZ size, in particular, to be handy for on the go. We’ve been toting ours just about everywhere—in meetings, subway rides, yoga classes.
Each of us ordered a different color so we never get mixed up. We picked the Holiday (sheer vacation blue), Spiked Tutu (with three-dimensional soft spikes in millennial pink), Jet (opaque black), and Gramercy (sheer lush garden green).
bkr water bottles are addictive little pieces of eye candy.
We love the designs the bkr bottles come in. They brighten up even the dullest days (we look at them with complete adoration every day).
Inspired by everything from fashion runway trends to fine art, these addictive glass water bottles feature silicone sleeves in a host of design options (spikes, stars, hearts and more) and trendy colors.
Stylish and photogenic, these glass water bottles are highly addictive. We literally want them all.
Water just tastes better out of bkr glass water bottle.
We really love how water tastes – just clean and pure – when drinking out of the bkr water bottle.
Made of pure glass, the bkr bottle doesn’t affect the taste of water so you don’t get that weird plastic taste or the metal aftertaste from the stainless steel bottles.
The bkr water bottle is BPA-free and phthalate-free so there is no risk of chemical leaching into the water. Plus, glass water bottles are so much better for the environment.
bkr bottles are durable and easy to tote around.
The sturdy silicone sleeve is made of BPA free silicone and cushions any shock, protecting the glass bottle from breakage. The texture of the silicone is soft and a pleasure to hold, while providing just enough grip (thus less likely to drop and break).
The bkr signature mouth is just wide enough to make it easy to drink from but small enough so we don’t spill water everywhere. But the small opening also means we cannot flavor our water with fruit slices.
With its slanted handle on the cap, it’s easy to carry around. Ever since we got our bkr water bottles, we certainly started drinking more water regularly.
Sure, you don’t have to have a fancy water bottle to up your water intake, but it does make drinking water throughout the day a whole lot more fun. It must be the way these adorable bottles catch our eye every time we look at them, reminding us to drink and constantly refilling it because it’s just so fancy to drink from it.
Staying hydrated has never been easier, safer, or more fashionable.
bkr is the ultimate ‘Haute Hydrator’.
How to care for your bkr water bottle?
We love the practical, minimal design and how easy it is to keep clean. The bottle can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher (on the top rack). The sleeve is dishwasher safe and does not need to be removed, but you can take off the sleeve (though it can be a bit tricky to slip on and off) for a deep cleaning every now and then.
We mainly drink water from our bottles so a quick rinse is enough to keep the bottle clean. It is recommended to use soapy water and the bkr bottle brush if you are drinking more than plain water.
Make sure to store the bottle with the cap off. Do not freeze or microwave.
Sippers are inspired to drink more water for glowing, healthy-looking skin.
