Glass Water Bottles

Hydrated & Vibrant

Clean, green, and made to be seen. It’s bkr (pronounced “beaker”), a water bottle that’s as fashionable as it is functional.

Tal Soltz and Kate Cutler are the creators of bkr. The two friends were inspired to kick the disposable water-bottle habit and create a reusable H2O carrier with a chic aesthetic. Tal and Kate chose glass to get the best tasting water (no metallic flavor) and to avoid the potential to leach chemicals. To
protect the glass, they wrapped it in a soft silicone sleeve.

The style of bkr is minimalist but not timid. The clean lines and vivid sleeves are a reflection of the founders’ love of modern art, international design, high fashion, and eco living. There are no garish graphics or chunky accessories. The silicone sleeve makes it easy to grip, and the streamlined handle is a perfect fit for two fingers. The cap, made of recyclable polypropylene, fits over a modest-sized opening that’s comfortable to drink from without dribbling.

All the elements come together to create a water bottle you won’t want to stash in a backpack or hide in a locker. At the gym or in a conference room, bkr is a stylish union of form and function.

    Happy New Year! My name is Amy Jones and we at bkr are thrilled to be today's Grommet. bkr ("beaker") bottle is made of glass and is for you to fill. Whatever you want inside. Tap water, bubbly water, orange juice, chocolate milk. Give up your plastic habits. We don't eat things we can't pronounce or marinate our water in polyethylene terephthalate. We've evolved. It’s a bkr. All clean everything. Any questions regarding our beautiful glass bkr, please drop me a line. And, do yourself a favor - add one more New Years Resolution to your list and I assure you your bkr will make it easy for you to keep this one: 'NO MORE CHEAP, MEANINGLESS PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE ONE-NIGHT STANDS'. xoxo, bkr

    Any plans to make larger bottles? I try to drink 100 a day and I fill them first thing in the morning so they are always ready at my desk.

    I love the look of these bottles and I really love the idea of a glass bottle. What are the chances you will ever have these made in US? I would be willing to pay a higher price for product made in country. Thank you.

    @ Alesia We would love to one day manufacture in the US but at this time to do so would be prohibitively expensive. Therefore, while we continue to do all design work in the US we have found amazing manufacturing partners abroad.

    @Alesia I understand that these are made in San Francisco.

    I agree that these are beautiful, however, my goal for the

    New Year is to try and buy "America" we need the jobs!

    Agree to Made in USA comments. I have been trying to refrain as much as I can from any outside manufacturing. American made is the best.

    We love that our Grommet community is so passionate about made in the U.S. products. For that reason, we have an entire section of our site dedicated to these products. You can view this page here.

    In the meantime, when you come across a great made in the USA product, suggest it as a Grommet by clicking on the link in the header or footer of any page.

    I drag my bottles with me wherever I go -- how much do these weigh empty - don't need more pounds in my go bag! :-)

    @ Anita

    Hi Anita,

    The weight isn't heavy. They are less than 1 lb each.

    @ Anita an empty bkr weights 0.9lbs - it is the perfect size to tote around with you.

    Love the concept! Am wondering how sturdy the silicone makes these. Bumps and drops happen, have you tested these for falls from differing heights? $28 is a lot if one drop crushes the glass.

    @ Melissa

    Hi Melissa,

    Thanks for your question. One of our employees tested the product by dropping it from about 5 ft and it survived just fine. Therefore we think it should survive the day to day usage and any bumps you encounter along the way.

    @ Melissa bkr bottle is made of glass - it's durable glass protected by a cushiony silicone sleeve, but it is still glass - so treat it carefully as you would your cell phone or any other thing you love. If you accidentally break it in the first 90 days, we will replace it for you.

    I really like this idea. Wish they were made in the USA. I would love to have one.

    Hi Karen,

    We know that many of our community members like products made in the U.S.A. While our partners always try their hardest to manufacture here in the U.S., sometimes it's just not possible.

    Because we feel so strongly about this issue as well, we have an entire section dedicated to it. Feel free to browse the section of our site dedicated to these products. You can view this page here.
